“We wanted to tell a fantastic story at the height of teenagers, at the age when we leave innocence and where the bonds of friendship are unwavering. The special effects and the spectacular were less important to us than the emotions and the intimacy – we were perfectly understood by the Disney teams who accompanied us throughout the project with enthusiasm “, Quoc Dang Tran explains in the statement.
