IndustryWorks Pictures‘ animated feature film Back to the Sea will open in theatres across Canada in both 2D and 3D on Friday, January 27.

Back to the Sea is a heart warming tale of adventure that follows Kevin, a young flying fish who lives in the New York Harbor. He dreams of leading his family back to Barbados—the mythical kingdom of the flying fish.

One fateful day, his adventurous nature finds him captured by a fishing ship and delivered to the fish tank of a Chinese restaurant in New York City’s Chinatown, where he meets a quiet young boy who also longs for excitement and adventure.

The two become friends and begin a daring quest to get Kevin back to the sea. Battling furious chefs, evil thieves, and hungry diners, the two heroes discover the true meaning of friendship, family, and the importance of following your dreams.

Directed by Thom Lu, this animated film will entertain the entire family. Adding to the film are the voices of Christian Slater as Jack the bad guy and robber. Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Tim Curry lends his voice as Eric, Kevin’s father. Mark Hamill (aka Luke Skywalker) plays Bunker, the wise old octopus. Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants) is the hilarious voice of Ben the Life Coach.

The team at IndustryWorks Pictures is proud to announce both their first theatrical animation film and co-production with China.

“This is an important step for Canada, and a huge feat for the Vancouver based independent film company to enter into a partnership with a studio like Glory & Dream Digital Animation. They are one of the top companies in animated films in China as is The Jiangsu Broadcast Company, the second largest broadcast company in China, the experience has been something quite incredible.”

I watched this delightful film earlier today at a press screening, and it’s a thoughtful, creative, and entertaining film, with a very happy ending.
