A Royal Short: "Le Royaume" by the Goeblins

Fans of Pixar and Studio Ghibli films will enjoy this small short created by a group of french students known as the Goeblins at Goeblins School of the Image.

This short graduation film, titled "Le Royaume," tells the brief anecdote and cautionary tale of one unnatural beaver's encounter with a self-proclaimed King. Impressive storytelling and gorgeous artwork (reminiscent of Disney's concept artists Mary Blair and Eyvind Earle) makes this short easily suitable for all audiences.

And don't worry, you don't need to understand French to enjoy it.

More information on the Goeblins may be obtained at their home web-page, or, for those not blessed with the French tongue, Wikipedia. Concept art like the piece shown below can be found at Sebhary's Blog.
