‘The Impossible Journey’ is an adventure comedy, using 3D animation combined with live action. In it, we see the animated characters dremt up by children within their imaginations, and the fabulous settings where they have their adventures.
The main characters are Mortando Malone, a 1920s-style canine detective, and The Big Blue Cat, a huge, futuristic alien tiger. Both are memorable and indispensable in the imagination of the child characters.
The short film ‘Blue and Malone, Detectives Imaginarios’, was the first introduction to these characters, which was nominated for the Spanish Academy Goya Award for Best Animated Short in 2014 and ‘Blue and Malone, Casos Imposibles’, in 2021. The feature film contains the powerful ingredients of intrigue, action and humour in equal parts.
It is directed by Abraham López and the screenwriter is Fabrice Ziolkowski, known for ‘The Secret of Kells’, nominated for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year by The Academy Awards 2010 (USA).
Among the many references, are the adventure and comedy stylings of ‘Roger Rabbit’, ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’, ‘Tomorrowland’, the 2009 film adaptation of ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ by Maurice Sendak, with the emotion and tenderness of ‘ET’ or ‘Monsters, Inc.’ and the romance of classic fantasies, such as Jim Henson’s ‘Labyrinth’ and ‘Dark Crystal’.
