Back in May, we told you about the forthcoming movie Ballerina, an animated film about a young girl who dreams of joining the Paris Opéra Ballet. Elle Fanning voices the main character, Félicie, and we've heard that none other than Maddie Ziegler will voice another character named Camille.
POB artistic director Aurelie Dupont has been overseeing the film's choreography, and we can totally tell that a professional ballet eye has been watching the animation process. Aside from a few questionable moments (dancing on pointe in street shoes is the main one), Ballerina looks like it accurately portrays ballet.
Of course, it's still an animated movie so that means there's plenty of room for fun. Check out two trailers below!
The movie will be in theaters this Christmas, just in time to treat yourself during Nutcracker season and root for an underdog chasing her ballet dreams!
