Back in 2010, Dean Fleischer-Camp and Jenny Slate introduced the world to an adorable seashell named Marcel, or more specifically, Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. You can see the original trilogy of shorts here. Over the past five years, the creators have been working on a full-length film in secret, so they could maintain creative control without having to deal with deadlines, a budget, or outside interference. The finished product was unveiled at the Telluride Film Festival last fall, and was picked up for distribution by A24. The movie is a “documentary” that follows Marcel as he searches for his family. The movie stars Fleischer-Camp and Slate, plus Isabella Rossellini, Rosa Salazar, Thomas Mann, and Lesley Stahl. Marcel the Shell with Shoes On will be in theaters on June 24. -via Metafilter
