Ernest & Celestine 2: A Trip to Gibberitia
Available on iTunes
In ERNEST AND CELESTINE: A TRIP TO GIBBERITIA, best friends/housemates Ernest (voiced by Lambert Wilson in the original French and Andrew Kishino in the English dub), a bear, and Celestine (Pauline Brunner/Ashley Boettcher), a mouse, live in a peaceful -- if occasionally hungry -- companionship. Things take a difficult turn when Celestine accidentally causes Ernest's "Stradybearius" violin to break. Ernest explains that only the luthier back in his homeland of Gibberitia can fix it, and Ernest has resigned himself to never return. Celestine, feeling responsible, decides to take the violin to Gibberitia herself, but Ernest follows. Once they're safely in Gibberitia, Ernest promises daily concerts and public performances, but instead the duo discover that there's now a law banning any music that's more than one note. Horrified, Ernest plays music, is arrested, and has an awkward reunion with his father (Michel Lerousseau/David Lodge), who's the chief judge behind the anti-music law. Ernest and Celestine must try to find a way to save Gibberitia from the unjust law.
