We are happy to announce that we have acquired international sales rights of the upcoming animated family feature JUST SUPER. A fun and warm-hearted story about believing in yourself, and superheroes.
The new project is directed by top-animator Rasmus A. Sivertsen, who has a well established name within the world of animation and previously directed Berlin and Shanghai Film Festival-selected LOUIS & LUCA - MISSION TO THE MOON (2018) as well as IN THE FOREST OF HUCKYBUCKY (2016), which was also selected for Shanghai Film Festival.
JUST SUPER is produced by Scandinavia's biggest animation studio Qvisten Animation with producers Åshild Ramborg (THE ASH LAD, 2017-2019; HOMESICK, 2015) and Stian Tveiten (CONGO, 2018) behind the wheel. Carter Goodrich (COCO, 2017; DESPICABLE ME, 2010-2017) has done initial character design.
Managing Director of TrustNordisk, Susan Wendt, comments on the acquisition:
‘We are truly excited about this new project, which will include a fun and charming story, high quality animation, and a strong production team, which we look very much forward to working together with. This is definitely a project worth keeping an eye out for.’
11-year-old gaming enthusiast Hedvig finds her life turned upside down when she is forced to replace her father as the town’s superhero much earlier than expected.
But Hedvig is no superhero, and the challenges are far greater than her coaching father anticipated. He soon realizes focus must shift to his athletic nephew Adrian instead.
Dejected and confused, Hedvig visits her demented grandmother. As she starts talking about the situation, the grandmother lights up, eagerly responding to her ramblings.
An unlikely team emerges, and soon Hedvig is about to fulfill their family legacy without her father’s knowledge.
JUST SUPER is directed by Rasmus A. Sivertsen, written by Kamilla Krogsveen and produced by Åshild Ramborg and Stian Tveiten for Qvisten Animation.
