The Orchard has debuted an official US trailer for an animated film from Denmark titled Up and Away, based on the Danish novel “Hodja fra Pjort”.

The film is about a boy named Hodja from the town of Pjort, who borrows a flying carpet to see the world. In return he has to find and return “diamond” to her grandfather. Of course, the “all-eating” Sultan wants to get his hands on Hodja’s flying carpet. I’m not really sure why this is a Danish movie, as it’s basically the classic Middle Eastern magic carpet story retold once again.

The English language voice cast of Up and Away includes Eoin McCormickLucy CarolanMarcus LambDermot MagennisDoireann Ni ChorragainGary CookePaul Tylak, and Susie Power. This really seems like an Aladdin ripoff, but perhaps that’s the whole point – rehash the same story.
