Leap! is a new inspirational and uplifting family movie from Lionsgate, now available on Digital HD, Blu-ray™, DVD, and On Demand. Leap! features a star studded cast of all-star voice talent led by Elle Fanning (Maleficent), alongside Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars) and Maddie Ziegler (The Book of Henry), with Mel Brooks (Spaceballs), featuring Carly Rae Jepsen (singer-songwriter of the hit song “Call Me Maybe”) and Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live”). Leap! is a feel good movie about about an orphan girl who is determined to follow her dream of becoming a ballerina. I bet this sounds familiar for a lot of Moms. We see a true to life story of the hard work and dedication that is need to accomplish such a dream and can be very inspiring for today’s kids.
Eleven-year-old orphan Félicie (Fanning) has one dream — to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend, Victor (Wolff), an imaginative, exuberant boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own — to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But there’s a catch: Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. And with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Ziegler). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Jepsen), who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.
An animated adventure the whole family will enjoy, the Leap! home entertainment release includes a behind-the-scenes video gallery and a look at stars Kate McKinnon, Nat Wolff, and Maddie Ziegler in the recording booth. Leap! will be available on Blu-ray (plus DVD and Digital HD) and DVD for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.
