Shout! Studios Signs Exclusive Distribution Deal for ‘Dreambuilders’ Feature

Company snags North American rights to release the CGI animated family film across all major entertainment platforms and in all packaged media.

Shout! Studios and Sola Media GmbH have agreed to an exclusive movie deal to distribute the new animated family feature Dreambuilders in North America. Directed by Kim Hagen Jensen (All Dogs Go To Heaven, FernGully) and Tonni Zinck (The Neon Demon), the movie is a production of First Lady Film, produced by Nynne Selin Eidnes. The distribution announcement was made by Shout’s senior vice president of Family Entertainment Melissa Boag; Sola Media’s managing director, Solveig Langeland; and Shout! Studios VP Acquisitions, Jordan Fields.

The deal grants Shout! Studios all North American distribution rights to the film, including theatrical, digital, video-on-demand, broadcast, and home entertainment for cross-platform releases. The studio plans a strategic launch across all major entertainment platforms and in all packaged media (Blu-ray/DVD).

Dreambuilders is an incredibly unique and engaging story, and we’re very excited to once again partner with Sola Media as we did on the wonderful family films Swift and Snowtime, to distribute it to a North American audience,” commented Boag.

In the film, a young girl, Minna, has her life turned upside down when her dad’s new fiancée Helena, and her daughter Jenny, move in. Jenny turns out to be horrible and Minna is frustrated. She wants her gone! One night, Minna discovers a world behind her dreams in which dream builders create dreams on theater stages; she discovers how to manipulate Jenny’s dreams. But interfering with people’s dreams has dire consequences and when one-night Minna goes too far…and Jenny cannot wake up! Minna must enter the dream world one final time to face the dreams of her creation to save Jenny and her new family.

Dreambuilders is a wonderfully inventive story, clever and funny at every turn, that has something profound to say about family and magic of dreaming,” added Fields. “This is one of those charming family films that parents will thoroughly enjoy watching with their kids.”

“We are very happy to work with our friends at Shout! Studios on Dreambuilders, a film filled with dreams about the challenges of bonus sisterhood; where a young girl has to put things right after making a very wrong decision,” shared Langeland.
