Will this be the best animated movie of 2016? It seems that there is hardly any talk going on about it.
>>
WTF?

This is a thing?

Wow, this totaly slipped under the radar.
>>
>>79006938
Oh shit I'm actually interested. Roald Dahl stories are awesome
>>
I hope they use the Doom 1/2 designs instead of the Doom 4 ones.
>>
>>79007021
The Doom 3 design was good

Wot
>>
>>79007140
oh it's not animated

Well fuck that then
>>79007170
I just saw the Disney logo on the title and assumed it was animated
>>
>>79007140
I like how the BFG moves at a regular speed and not the 'big = slow' thing they do with most giants.
>>
The BFG was my favorite book when I was a kid, I'm really hyped about this.
>>
>>79010676
The Witches is the better Dahl book senpai
>>
>>79006938
But that cartoon was made years and years ago.
>>
>>79007021
If you've seen the preview video/gameplay the designs are pretty much all 1/2 but changed up a little. Mancubus, for instance, looks more like a lizard, zombies are now more oddly inhuman, imps are weird, Revenants have JETPACKS, etc.

I remember the 1989 animation version,
man the child-eating giants were freaky. It's actually a really dark story
>>
>>79006938
You do know that the bfg already had a great animated movie right? Hell you can watch out all on YouTube. It's worth a look.
>>
>>79010932
See >>79007269
You think I would know there is a version that is animated now that you have this info? I would delete this thread if I could but seems you can't even do that anymore.
>>
>>79010982
Well but I'm glad to know of the film and also remember the existence of the animated film from 1989. I think there's a lot of old, good animation like that that gets forgotten because it wasn't made by a major studio
>>
>>79010726
Not that anon, but the Witches already had a movie.
>>
>>79010927
Got a link?

>>79011898
I assume they're referring to the BFG and other giants. If it's paced the same as the original film, Sophie's going to be the only live action element in a fair chunk of the film.
>>
>>79010927
> a really dark story
Just like most of Dahl's kids stuff. Dude hated being famous for being a children's author.
>>
>>79014453
well i think he hated what 'kids stuff' became. he originally wrote for the kind of kid HE was. the one that wanted to read gruesome stuff.. hell that one book was semi autobiographical, the one about poachers. shit was dangerous as hell. you'd never get that made into a movie or anything now.

but yeah i'm amazed this is being made and I think we all know how sanitized it's going to be.
>>
>>79011658
It's on youtube, I saw it recommended at the end of the live action trailer at this thread. "BFG full movie" should get it
>>
>>79014453
Most of Dahl's stuff in general was very dark or macabre. His short stories are also amazing.
>>
>>79014859
Those shorts are his best works IMO.
>>
>>79014825
>>79011658
Found this one at least, there's another version in the "up next"

>>79011311
Speaking of which, wasn't there talk a few years ago about Guillermo del Toro planning a stop-motion animated adaptation of Witches? It'd be nice to see something along those lines happen someday, especially with the hope that it captures Dahl's dark tone a bit better. I've read that Dahl himself was very dissatisfied with the old Witches film.
>>
Holy Shit, Mark Rylance is legit one of the best actors working at the moment.

Seen him on stage in London a few times, glad he's getting more film roles.
