JELLY T

DANISH ANIMATED MOVIE IN 3D

Following on from the success of "Freddy Frogface", it is now the turn of another of Ole Lund Kirkegaard’s beloved stories to be adapted to the silver screen - the story of Ivan Olsen, perhaps better known as Jelly Tarzan.

Poor Ivan Olsen is plagued by problems... bullied at school and constantly pursued by a gang whose greatest pleasure is filling his pants with water. And when Ivan gets home, his dad doesn’t have much sympathy for him either because he is crazy about Tarzan and fails to appreciate Ivan’s finer qualities.

But one day Ivan gets the chance to live up all of his dad’s expectations and give the bullies at school a lesson they will never forget... the big questions is whether having superpowers makes life any easier? Released in Danish cinemas on July 1st, the animated feature "Freddy Frogface" was the first of a trilogy based on Ole Lund Kirkegaard’s books. "Jelly T" will continue the tradition of being faithful to the instantly recognisable illustrations that are so central to Kirkegaard’s works. "Jelly T" will be followed by "Otto is a rhino".
