Manhattan Beach, CA; March 31, 2011) SKECHERS Entertainment, a division of global footwear company SKECHERS USA, Inc. (NYSE:SKX), announced that it is launching its new 2D-animated, dance and song filled direct-to-DVD movie property Twinkle Toes at MIPTV in Cannes on April 4-7, 2011.
Geared towards children ages 6-11 with a running time of 72 minutes and a September 2011 release date, Twinkle Toes is the story of Grace Hastings, 14, who has a secret talent. An amazing dancer, Grace has a serious case of stage fright that makes it impossible for her to dance in front of anyone but her pet bunny, Walter. When her performing arts high school is threatened by financial problems, Grace realizes that she must overcome her fear and embrace her “twinkle toes” to perform in a talent show and save the school! An impressive voice cast includes Tom Kenny (the voice of Spongebob Squarepants), Emmy Award-winning actress Holland Taylor (Two and a Half Men) and teen star Corbin Bleu (High School Musical).
“Twinkle Toes has a spirit and positive energy that is universal and will appeal to a global audience,” said Kristen Van Cott, senior vice president of creative development for SKECHERS Entertainment. “We love this character and we have no doubt she’ll become an international fan favorite.”
Twinkle Toes is produced by SKECHERS Entertainment in association with Crescent Moon Entertainment. Executive producers are Kristen Van Cott and Elizabeth Daro. Visit SKECHERS Entertainment at MIPTV Booth #R.30.33 for more information.
