LAIKA, the animation studio behind the Academy Award-nominated Kubo and the Two Strings, The Boxtrolls, ParaNorman, and Coraline, has announced its fifth film. The feature, which is currently being referred to as Film Five, is in production at the studio and will be released in the U.S. by Annapurna Pictures. The announcement was made today by LAIKA President and CEO Travis Knight and Megan Ellison, Founder and CEO of Annapurna Pictures.

Bursting with humor, heart, and a profound message of acceptance and finding one’s place, the animation team at LAIKA is thrilled to be bringing this globetrotting comedy-adventure to life. Film Five is directed by Chris Butler (ParaNorman), with a voice cast led by Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman, Logan), Zoe Saldana (Avengers: Infinity War, Avatar franchise), and Zach Galifianakis (Baskets, A Wrinkle in Time).

“Our next film represents an evolutionary shift for LAIKA. It’s an exciting bridge to our future. Director Chris Butler and the wizards at LAIKA have crafted a moving work of art, layered with wit and imagination and soul. Plus it’s really, really funny. It’s a privilege to partner with Megan and her exceptional team at Annapurna to bring this beautiful original story to the world,” said Knight.

Ellison added: “We’re excited for the opportunity to collaborate with Travis and the amazing team at LAIKA. We appreciate their trust and look forward to having some fun together.”
