A Monster in Paris arrives in April

Shout! Factory has announced to bring the animated feature A Monster in Paris to Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in April.
A wacky inventor, his camera-crazy best friend and a madcap monkey make a massive mistake when let loose in a mad scientist’s laboratory. With lotions and potions spilling everywhere, the troublesome trio accidentally creates Franc, the product of a reaction between a common flea and one of the scientist’s mystery concoctions. What they fail to realize, however, is that this ‘monster’ is actually a soft-centered soul with an astounding talent for music.
  With the help of an enchanting nightclub singer Lucille, Franc becomes the talk of the town, just as stories of Paris’s newest monster attract the attention of the egotistical police commissioner, hell bent on securing a big prize to help his battle to become mayor. The unwitting scientists and the singer must team up to protect Franc, a monster with more than a musical career to protect!
Venture into the delightful Parisian cityscapes 1910s and spellbound by the visually opulent family adventure, which harkens back to the classic tale of beauty and the beast, and delivers vibrant storyline packed with elegant characters, and unforgettable song-and-dance musical numbers!
The film arrives as a Blu-Ray 3D Combo Pack offering up a 1080p high definition transfer and DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio. It will include the 3D version, a standard Blu-Ray version, the DVD and a Digital Copy of the film.
