The animated comedy The Amazing Maurice, a co-production between European studios, has the rare honor of being selected for the well-known Sundance festival. A new trailer below.
The feature film is based on Terry Pratchett's book The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, part of the famous world of Discworld , adapted into a screenplay by Terry Rossio (Aladdin, Shrek) and directed by Toby Genkel (Ooops!
