Derek Lui, President of Sales at LevelK, said, “Not only does The Incredible Story of The Giant Pear sell really well in Europe, it has also sold extremely well in Asia. Many distributors already came on board during pre-sales, and now that the animation is completed, more territories continue to board this incredible journey of the giant pear. The film is full of adventure, humour and visual beauty that transcends boundaries and can be relatable for family audiences across the globe. It has been a wonderful journey working on this title, and we look forward to seeing it in cinemas worldwide.”
