Take flight with Swift, a wonderfully uplifting, family-friendly journey about standing up for what you believe and finding your place in the world, when it comes to Blu-ray™ and DVD on April 7, 2020, from Shout! Kids. Starring the voice talent of Kate Winslet (Titanic, Mary, and the Witch’s Flower) as Blanche, Willem Dafoe (The Lighthouse, Finding Dory) as Yves, and Josh Keaton (Voltron: Legendary Defender) as Manou, this is a film for the whole family. Bonus features on the Blu-ray and DVD include an interview with Willem Dafoe, a look at the making of the film, and the theatrical trailer.
Meet Manou, a sweet bird who grows up believing he is a seagull like his parents. He strives to swim, fish and fly like them … but feels that he is not very gifted. To his great shock, Manou discovers that he was adopted, and is actually the offspring of the much-hated swifts!
After a tragedy, Manou has to navigate the differences between swifts and seagulls, and ultimately try to find his own identity – and save his friends and family along the way. Secret code: flock.
Swift is a charming story about a tiny bird who ended up in the wrong nest. Little Manou is a Swift, but was raised by seagulls. While they have their differences, Manou didn’t let limitations stop him from becoming the best he could be. There was a little bullying from both bird sides, but Manou rose far above it. Life is what you make it and Manou turned out to be the hero on both sides.
