“The Diary of Anne Frank” gets an animated screen adaptation

Israeli filmmaker Ari Folman, who directed the Golden Globe-winning Waltz with Bashir (2008), is releasing an animated film titled Where Is Anne Frank? about Frank’s life in hiding as well as what awaited her family after their arrest, according to The Jerusalem Post. In March, Folman announced that the seventeen-and-a-half million-euro project had wrapped, complete with English-speaking voice actors as well as two-dimensional characters against stop-motion backgrounds by puppeteer Andy Gent. Gent’s other screen credits include Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009) and Isle of Dogs (2018), and no premiere date has yet been scheduled for his collaboration with Folman.
