Starring the voices of Forest Whitaker (as Teddy), Joan Cusack (as Madame Curie) and Carey Elwes (as Sir Handsome), Toys in the Attic, combines multiple forms of animation, is set in a magical world of toys and knick-knacks, stored in the attic of a home in Prague during the Cold War era.

The setting for the film was inspired by the cultural and political contrast of the Cold War era and its impact on director Jiri Barta and the Czech Republic. The world of the attic is divided into the land of happy toys in the West and the Land of Evil in the East. The despotic Head of State rules over the Land of Evil with a band of sinister minions, insects and rotted vegetables. When the lovely Buttercup (Vivian Schilling) is kidnapped and held prisoner by The Head, it is up to her friends - a teddy bear (Forest Whitaker), a mechanical mouse (Joan Cusack) and marionette puppet (Cary Elwes) to cross the international boundary and attempt their daring rescue.

Originally Produced in the Czech Republic, Toys in the Attic (also known as In the Attic or Who Has a Birthday today? and Na Pude) is a full-length animated film, said to be for both children and adults.

The film will open in USA theaters on September 7.
