Hazelnuts: in search of the perfect planet

A pair of greedy squirrels venture beyond Earth in search of the most delicious super hazelnuts, only to discover the surprising truth about the perfect planet.

Produced by

3D Emotion, Mediastro Promotion

Directed by

Stéphane Bertrand and Damien Maugin

Project Description

Once upon a time there was a sky full of marvellous planets, and on those planets were the most delicious super hazelnuts ever. At least that’s what two greedy squirrels, Nino and Lilli, thought. But is the grass really greener elsewhere?

Our squirrels try everything they can to leave Earth and answer that questions, but Leon the old owl prefers to lead them to his telescope and show them exactly what awaits them on those planets.

Hazelnuts, in search of the perfect planet, is an entertaining and educational fulldome show written for young children, from age 5+, using a format specially designed for that age group: visual gags, a format inspired by puppet theatre, and astronomical concepts which have been adapted to their level of understanding.
By introducing the planets of our solar system from the point of view of life, Hazelnuts tells the story of conditions of life on Earth. This allows us to broach several subjects: inhabitable zones, the essential role of the atmosphere, and even the different stages of the creation of planet Earth.

Children and families will learn about life and astronomy while having fun!
