The Inventor is a stylized, stop motion puppet and 2-D hand-drawn animated film about Leonardo Da Vinci. This exhilarating adventure will be voiced by Stephen Fry (Leonardo) and Daisy Ridley (Princess Marguerite de Navarre), Marion Cotillard (Louise de Savoy) and Matt Berry (Pope Leo X) – with additional cast to be announced.

The story follows the insatiably curious and headstrong inventor Leonardo da Vinci (Stephen Fry) as he leaves Italy to join the French court, where he can experiment freely, inventing flying contraptions, incredible machines, and studying the human body. There, joined in his adventure by the audacious princess Marguerite (Daisy Ridley), Leonardo will uncover the answer to the ultimate question ~ “What is the meaning of it all? “

An Irish co-production presented by Curiosity Studio (Ireland) in partnership with Foliascope (France), Aerial Contrivance Studios, and SIE Films.
