Synopsis by Jack Rodgers
In 19th century France, a young orphan named Félicie (voice of Elle Fanning) dreams of becoming a ballerina. She and her best friend Victor (voice of Dane DeHaan) soon run away to Paris, where she enrolls in a prestigious dance school and competes for a chance to be a prima ballerina. Carly Rae Jepsen and Maddie Ziegler also lend their voices to this animated tale, which was directed by Eric Summer and Éric Warin.
