If, rhetorically, you were to ask me how Juan José Campanella would follow 2010′s terrific The Secret In Their Eyes, an animated film centering on a foosball table figure… would not have been an early guess. But that’s just what he’s made with Foosball, which follows “an underdog who, with the help of foosball figures that come to life, must take on a star soccer pro to save their village.” Now, Animate (via ThePlaylist) have provided a teaser.
This being, again, a teaser, we only get some ordinary wisecracks from a British “football” player and his victorious goal; all well and good, though this newfound curiosity leaves me wanting a bit more. But, whatever. I’m just glad Campanella‘s got something new in the pipeline.
