Wow. What a powerful little teaser. Gives me flashbacks to the ’80s… Short Circuit and E.T., specifically.
And this one’s directed by Andrew Stanton, who gave us Finding Nemo. I can’t wait.
As I work on stories in The Auralia Thread, I often find myself stopping to ask, “What would Pixar do?” The quality of their storytelling is their strongest virtue, and that’s saying a lot considering they produce the best digitally animated movies in the world. They know the secrets of classic storytelling. They understand that a story isn’t good enough for children unless it’s good enough for the most discerning grownups.
Andrew Stanton is just about at the top of the list of people I hope to interview someday. Anybody out there who has an idea about how I might get an opportunity like that, please send me an email!
