While the joys of "Moonrise Kingdom" are still reserved for those that managed to see it at the Cannes Film Festival or in the handful of cities it opened in last weekend, it looks like there will be even more to enjoy from Wes Anderson's forthcoming film.

As you already know, the film centers on two young kids played by Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward, who fall in love and run away in New England much to the chagrin of the adults in their lives. As with any Anderson film, each kid has their own set of quirks and interests, and for Suzy, no runaway is complete without a suitcase full of books. Well, it looks like audiences and fans are going to get a deeper look at what's between the books' covers. "[The character of Suzy has] a suitcase full of these young adult fantasy type novels," Anderson ComingSoon. "Sort of sci-fi/fantasy books. We had to invent them and give a little glimpse of each one. Different artists, most of whom very close to the filmmakers, were doing these. In fact, we have now animated them, each little passage, each in the style of the cover of the book. We've made a little short film that's hosted by Bob Balaban, the narrator in our movie. That will come out next week on the internet. It'll be a little companion piece to the movie."

We presume it will land on the already quite interactive and Bob Balaban-guided official website for the film, but that's just a guess. There's no word just where it will pop up, but keep your eyes peeled. As fans know, Anderson also added to the world of "The Darjeeling Limited" with the short film "Hotel Chevalier" which, arguably, was even better than the feature itself. But this time around, it looks to be more like an added treat/expansion to an already solid film, rather than something a bit more standalone. Either way, more Anderson and animated to boot? We're stoked.

"Moonrise Kingdom" is in theaters now and hits more cities over the next few weeks.
