When struggling filmmaker Dean (writer-director Dean Fleischer Camp) moves into an Airbnb, he quickly discovers that he is not alone. Marcel (Jenny Slate), an adorable one-inch-tall shell, already lives there with his grandmother Connie (Isabella Rossellini) and their pet lint, Alan. Once part of a sprawling community of shells, Marcel and Connie live alone as the sole survivors of a mysterious tragedy. Taken with his unlikely new friend, Dean starts filming Marcel and his grandmother, igniting a meteoric rise to internet fame that changes their lives forever. But will Marcel’s newfound sense of possibility and a throng of superfans be enough to track down his long-lost family?

Soulful, whimsical and intricately crafted, MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON is the feature adaptation of Dean Fleischer Camp and Jenny Slate’s popular series of short films and New York Times-bestselling books, and marks the big screen debut of the internet’s most beloved mollusk.
