All aspects of this ambitious undertaking will help tell the story of Poet Anderson, a fictional character created by Tom DeLonge and his AVA band mate, Ilan Rubin. We now have a first glimpse at the project beyond the album with the trailer for the animated film Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker, which premiered on Indiewire.

The trailer, which is set to music from the upcoming album, features young protagonist Poet meeting "The Dream Walker," which allows him to blur the lines between dreams and reality. That blurring results in monsters, explosions and fighting with an umbrella.

Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker premieres at the Toronto International Short Film Festival in November. It will be released online on December 9. The Dream Walker album is also due out in December.
