Winter 2015 is here and animation studios from around the world have bestowed upon us a very unique set of films to start off the year. From traditional hand-drawn (Song of the Sea), to live-action CG hybrid (Paddington), and everything in between, there are lots of great animated features to enjoy this season. Here’s our preview (along with some personal opinions from yours truly). Let us know what movies you’ve seen or are planning to see in the comments below.
Lucasfilm Ltd. gave us all a surprise announcement with the unveiling of its latest animated feature film project, Strange Magic. Lucasfilm Animation Singapore and Industrial Light and Magic are doing the animation work (it’s the same animation team that created 2011’s Rango). With a story by George Lucas himself, the film is directed by Gary Rydstrom (we’ve been wondering about the specifics of what he’s been working on for quite some time).
