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