Mia and the Migoo is the second feature from French animator Jacques-Rémy Girerd. Created from 500,000 hand-painted frames of animation, this film tells the fable-like journey of a young girl who must overcome her fears on a quest to find her father and save the world. Mia and the Migoo also features the voices of John DiMaggio, Whoopi Goldberg, Matthew Modine, James Woods, and Wallace Shawn.

When her father is trapped in a landslide at a construction site on a remote tropical lake, Mia sets out on a cross continental journey, though mountains and jungles. In the middle of the lake stands the ancient Tree of Life, watched over by forest spirits called the Migoo, who grow and change shape as they please. The Migoo have been disrupting the construction to protect this sacred site, and they join Mia to fight to find Mia’s father and save the Tree on which the future of Earth depends. This adventurous tale released on August 7.
