Vision Film Entertainment acquires Arkie for distribution in China

Vision Film Entertainment has lapped up animated feature Arkie for distribution in China across some 10,000 theaters.

Produced by Passion Pictures (Australia) and Nitrogen Studios (Canada) with animation by Melboune-based Luma Pictures, the fantasy-adventure has been directed by Luke Jurevicius  and based on the graphic novel/character brand Scarygirl created by his brother Nathan Jurevicius.

 Arkie centers on a unique young girl who was abandoned as a child and raised by a kindly octopus. When her adoptive father is kidnapped and her world is overcast by darkness, Arkie must overcome her fears and journey to a mysterious city of light to rescue him from a dangerous scientist and save the planet from destruction.

The English-language voice cast is led by Shailene Woodley  as Arkie and Jai Courtney as Dr. Maybee, with Internet personality Andrew Bachelor, a.k.a. King Bach.

The film has been pre-sold to Madman Ent. (Australia & New Zealand), Notorious (Italy), Best Film (Baltics), Dexin (ex-Yugoslavia), Phonencia (Middle East) and Captive (Philippines). Odin’s Eye Entertainment is the international rights agent for Arkie, while North America is handled by United Talent Agency.
