The First Trailer For Animated Film ‘THE BREADWINNER’ Executive Produced by Angelina Jolie

May 17, 2017

Check out the trailer that Cartoon Saloon has released for their upcoming adaption of THE BREADWINNER from GKIDS and executive producer Angelina Jolie!

Based on the award-winning, bestselling young adult novel of the same name by Deborah Ellis, the film is directed by Nora Twoney and Tomm Moore.

The film tells the story of Parvana, a young girl living under the Taliban regime, who cuts her hair and disguises herself as a boy in order to provide for her family after her father is imprisoned.  GKID CEO/Founder Eric Beckman and President  David Jesteadt executive produce.

Jolie said:

“I am proud to be a part of this beautiful film with this timely and very important subject matter. Millions of girls around the world have to grow up before their time, working to provide for their families at a very young age and in difficult circumstances. They have the strength to do what no one should ask little girls to do. I hope this film is able to bring this discussion to a broader audience. As much as it is an important and very meaningful film, it also stands on its own as a great piece of art. Director Nora Twoney and her team have done something very special. They have breathed life into the characters and paid respect to the subject matter and to a country where women often struggle.”

The film is set for a fall 2017 release.
