I highly recommend checking out Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio, and Henry Selick's Wendell & Wild. Both are currently streaming on Netflix.
It has been a FANTASTIC year for stop-motion films!! These are no exception.
Pinoccio, especially, is truly amazing. I just cannot say a bad thing about that movie. It's gorgeous and striking and took me on far more of an emotional trip than I expected. My former colleagues that got to work on it have all been gushing about how great a production it was. I was lucky enough to catch it in the limited theatrical release.
It's a bit on the goofy side in some aspects, but Wendell & Wild was surprisingly good, too. I mean, of course the animation is great. No question there. But the main storyline? Wow. I am so impressed Selick was able to tackle it, and of course Key & Peele know what they're doing. Very good collab with a really neat visual style.
I recently read that for some insane reason, Disney just gave Selick the rights to the ill-fated Shadow King that got scrapped a while back. I'm super psyched to see how it gets revived.
