With the theatrical experience in a fluid moment, Paramount Animation locked in two key dates.
Under the Boardwalk will open on July 22, 2022 and The Tiger's Apprentice on February 10, 2023.
The Tiger’s Apprentice will star Henry Golding and marks the feature directorial debut of Carlos Baena, whose multi-award-winning animated horror short La Noria has been wowing international film festivals since its debut in 2018. As an animator, Baena’s credits include Pixar’s Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille, WALL-E and Toy Story 3, and DreamWorks’ Monsters University.
Published by HarperCollins in 2003, the book introduces young readers to Tom Lee: A boy whose normal life in San Francisco is changed forever when he meets a talking tiger named Mr. Hu (Golding) and discovers he is the latest in a long line of magical Guardians.
Yep is a two-time Newbery Honor recipient for his Golden Mountain Chronicles collection. The Tiger’s Apprentice was followed by Tiger Blood and Tiger Magic.
Under the Boardwalk is a comedy that imagines the clawing that ensues when sea crab tourists clash with crab townies on the Jersey Shore.
Written by Lorena Scafaria [Hustlers, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World], Boardwalk is directed by David Soren who's work includes directing Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie and Turbo.
