They do a quick recap on changes in the animation industry since 2015 as well as recount their favorite animated films from the past seven years.

We also talk about ideas for the already in the works sequel to the film and how well it did at the box office this past weekend. In addition, Stanford interviews Floyd Norman in celebration of The Jungle Book coming to Blu-ray this week.
Also Discussed: Arthur Rankin Jr.’s passing, a recap of the Annie Awards winners, a live-action/CG Rescue Rangers film, Pixar’s Party Central preview, the trailer for Postman Pat, and the voice cast for Sausage Party.

ParaNorman, one of last year’s most beloved films here at Animation Fascination, came away with two awards, both revolving around character design and both, in our opinion, rightfully deserved. We were also happy to see Tron: Uprisingwin a couple of awards, although they are slightly bittersweet what with the show’s recent cancellation.
