‘The Tale of Despereaux’ looks for niche audience on DVD

 

Too dark? Too intense? The Tale of Despereaux, an original animated fairy tale with a Grimm Brothers feel, has not found the audience it deserves yet.

The $60-million film is now looking to prosper on DVD, according to producer Allison Thomas.

"I think, in a movie theatre, a lot of this movie is really scary for pre-schoolers," Thomas says from Los Angeles, after Despereaux earned $85 million in worldwide box office. "So we were worried about that. But, in a DVD setting, kids and parents are very used to fast-forwarding through things. So it's probably manageable."
