Recap: 'Spider-Man' Visuals / Tangent / Skydance Head

Spidey and studios...

Recap: Locksmith Goes Forward / Chris Sanders' New Film / 'Gnome Alone' Moves

I'm going to go through with this recap first because all of the news here is brand new. The previous recap, which has yet to be finished, will be posted after this because the stories are arguably a little more minor. I was really, really sick last night and couldn't even muster up a sentence, so... Yeah...

Review: 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'

While not animated, you could argue that Kingsman: The Secret Service and its recently-released sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, are amped up live-action cartoons.

Clearing Some Things Up About Fox/Recap

In a series of posts about Fox Animation, I've made a couple of mistakes...

Here, I'll correct all of them for convenience and for reference...

Nimona, the adaptation of Noelle Stevenson's webcomic of the same name, is actually being done by Blue Sky and will be the release that follows 2019's Pigeon Impossible. Marc Haimes, a writer on LAIKA's marvelous Kubo and the Two Strings, is set to pen the script. Patrick Osborne, director of Disney Animation's Feast and the acclaimed VR short Pearl, is directing. Osborne confirmed that Blue Sky is doing Nimona, in an article published back in February. It's also set in the future, not during the Middle Ages.

Some projects on 20th Century Fox Animation's overall slate were thought to be live-action/animation hybrids...

The Littlest BigfootZita the Spacegirl, Momotaro, and everything else in development are to be all-animated features...

The Girl Who Drank the Moon and Puff, the Magic Dragon are expected to be live-action/animation hybrids...

Blue Sky is, according to reports, doing Escape from Hat.

Carry on... Here's my latest news recap, with all those Fox Animation errors intact!
