Dir. Dean Fleischer Camp. 2022, 90 mins. With Jenny Slate, Rosa Salazar, Thomas Mann, and Isabella Rossellini. Marcel is an adorable one-inch-tall shell who ekes out a colorful existence with his grandmother Connie and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, they now live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. But when a documentary filmmaker discovers them amongst the clutter of his Airbnb, the short film he posts online brings Marcel millions of passionate fans, as well as unprecedented dangers and a new hope at finding his long-lost family. A beloved character, created by Dean Fleischer Camp and Jenny Slate and previously featured in three award-winning stop-motion animated short films, gets his big-screen debut in this hilarious and heartwarming story about finding connection in the smallest corners. An A24 Film. The film opens in theaters June 24.
