All the way from France comes another animated adventure. From Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli, the writer and director team behind the Oscar nominated A Cat in Paris comes Phantom Boy, a touching and comedic supernatural superhero mystery. They bring their trademark simple and appealing animation design, quirky characters and energetic plot.
Somewhere in New York City, a little boy named Leo (voiced by Alex Gagnol in French, Marcus D’Angelo in English) faces an uncertain future due to a severe illness. But while at the hospital, he learns he can exit his body and allow his spirit to flow across the city. At the same time, disfigured criminal mastermind The Face (Jean-Pierre Marielle in French, Vincent D’Onofrio in English) has hacked the whole city and demands a billion dollar ransom in 24 hours or he’ll shut down the city’s electricity. The only one who knows where he is Lieutenant Alex Tanguy (Edouard Baer in French, Jared Padalecki in English) who’s personal altercation with the Face and his goons left him in a wheelchair. Sharing the same hospital, Leo uses his powers to help Tanguy and reporter Mary (Audrey Tatou in French, Melissa Disney in English) find the Face and prevent his act of terror.
