Superheroes gone mad. Warner Bros France recently released a teaser trailer for the French animated film The Prodigies (French title: La Nuit des enfants rois) and it’s an interesting one. Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Bernard Lenteric, The Prodigies has been in production for several years now. The film follows five young prodigies who, after being assaulted, lash out against the world. Only one prodigy stands between them and destruction but his fight is waning and the thought of joining the five others becomes a tempting proposition. The teaser trailer really gives a sense of the different tone to this superhero film but the animation is looking rather disjointed. I’m hoping that all those years of production have not gone to waste. Still, this is a long-awaited release and you should definitely check out the teaser!
