Based on the classic Belgian book series by Gabrielle Vincent, Ernest & Celestine takes place in a beautiful, water-colored world in which a society of mice live underground in constant fear of the bears that dwell in the city above. When one of them, Celestine, comes face to face with Ernest, a bear, an unlikely, but beautiful friendship begins.
Featuring the voices of Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, Paul Giamatti, William H. Macy, Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman and Jeffrey Wright!
Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets, tucked away in networks of winding tunnels, lives a tiny mouse named Celestine. Unlike her fellow mice, Celestine is an artist and a dreamer, and has a hard time fitting in. When she nearly ends up as breakfast for a grumpy bear named Ernest, the two become fast friends and embark on an adventure that will put a smile on your face and make your heart glow.
