About:
The secret origin of Curious George.

The mischievous monkey Curious George made his first appearance more than 75 years ago and has been entertaining readers young and old ever since. If not for a pair of handmade bicycles, however, the beloved children’s book character might never have made it out of Nazi-occupied Europe. Brought to life with whimsical animation, Yamazaki’s film celebrates the power of storytelling as it recounts how refugee couple Hans and Margret Rey created an enduring classic.
