The First Image From Henry Selick’s The Shadow King


Following yesterday’s announcement that they’ll be producing Henry Selick’s next stop motion feature film, The Shadow King, K5 International (via Bleeding Cool) has revealed through their website a first look at the project and the following list of voice talent:

Jaden Betts as Hap
Pamela Adlon as Richard
Brendan Gleeson as Darce
Jeffrey Tambor as Cuzzie Bell
Catherine O’Hara as Miss Fern

The Shadow King is described as being a deliciously magical tale about nine-year-old New York orphan Hap who hides his fantastically weird hands with long fingers from a cruel world. But when a living shadow girl teaches him to make amazing hand shadows that come to life, his hands become incredible weapons in a shadow war against a ravenous monster bent on killing Hap’s brother Richard and ultimately destroying New York.
