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!
