In 1950s Italy, a middle-aged Count goes on a magical odyssey through his past whilst he takes part in one of the world's most prestigious car races: le Mille Miglia.[1]


In 2014, it was announced that Sylvain Chomet, director of The Triplets of Belleville and The Illusionist, would be directing The Thousand Miles. Chomet explained "The film will weave live action and hand-drawn animation to portray the count's souvenirs"

When discussing the inspirations for The Thousand Miles and his previous film The Illusionist, Chomet said the following: "My creative vision has been constantly fuelled by two extraordinary filmmakers: Jacques Tati and Federico Fellini. With The Illusionist, I had the opportunity to directly explore my love for the work of Tati. Now, with The Thousand Miles, I can do just that with the magical world of Fellini." The film started production in 2015.
