We were recently in Belgium to meet with nWave Pictures and talk about future projects. The team at nWave made Son of Bigfoot, and it was great to chat with them and see their fantastic studio in Brussels.
In some foreign territories, Son of Bigfoot was called Bigfoot Junior, as you can see from the posters hanging in the lobby.
They also gave us some awesome Son of Bigfoot crew shirts!
The movie we wrote, Son of Bigfoot, just won the Lumiere Award for best 3D animated feature film. Congratulations to Ben Stassen and the team at nWave!
The Son of Bigfoot has been released in China! Check out the cool Chinese poster below.
Fun fact: The literal translation of the Chinese text is “My Father Is King Of The Forest” – which makes sense, since Bigfoot is definitely king of the forest!
Our friends at nWave asked us to write the foreword to the Son of Bigfoot art book. We just got our copies in the mail, and it looks great!
Hollywood Reporter (USA)
“Slated for release throughout Europe, the $30M production should eventually find a home in the U.S. — which is, after all, where Bigfoot is meant to live.”
The List (UK)
“A Quirky, upbeat animation which does just enough to stand out from the crowd.”
Stuff (New Zeland)
“A surprisingly great animated adventure”
In 2013, we wrote an original screenplay called Son of Bigfoot. We sold this script to nWave, an animation studio in Belgium who made the movie in association with STUDIOCANAL.
The wait is over, and Son of Bigfoot is finished! It’s currently playing in European theatres, and the soundtrack by Puggy is available on iTunes and Apple Music.
Check out the trailer and soundtrack below!
Teenage outsider Adam sets out on an epic and daring quest to uncover the mystery behind his long-lost dad, only to find out that he is none other than the legendary Bigfoot! He has been hiding deep in the forest for years to protect himself and his family from HairCo., a giant corporation eager to run scientific experiments with his special DNA. As father and son start making up for lost time after the boy’s initial disbelief, Adam soon discovers that he too is gifted with superpowers beyond his imagination. But little do they know, HairCo. is on their tail as Adam’s traces have led them to Bigfoot!
The Son of Bigfoot was released to theaters on August 16, 2017.
