By Amid Amidi | 06/24/2019 8:18 pm | 37

 

What do audiences want to see more — an almost-20-year-old hand-drawn animated feature or a brand-new cg animated feature? That exact scenario played out in China last weekend and you may be surprised by the answer: audiences unequivocally chose hand-drawn animation........

There's a lot more going on there than just hand-drawn vs. CGI. You've got a very American milieu in Toy Story 4, filled with uniquely American in-jokes and references, whereas Spirited Away will be much more familiar and accessible to Chinese audiences, story and character wise.

Also, saying audiences prefer Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli to CGI (whether Chinese or American) is like saying that audiences preferred Disney's "Pinocchio" to Universal's "Secret Life of Pets 2".

(Unless we're talking about "Howl's Moving Castle", in which case nobody preferred that to anything, unless it was the first Ghibli they ever saw in the US.)

Wouldn't it be nice if we someday got new cartoons that WEREN'T passive-aggressively hipster-inspired by classic Fleischer cartoons from the 30's?

Paul McCartney Teams With Netflix on 'High in the Clouds' Animated Feature

"........Paul McCartney is teaming with Netflix and Gaumont on an animated feature based on the musician's own children's novel High in the Clouds. 

Written by McCartney together with Geoff Dunbar and Philip Ardagh and first published in 2005, High in the Clouds follows an imaginative teenage squirrel named Wirral who finds himself pulled into a ramshackle gang of teenage rebels who live high in the clouds after he accidentally antagonizes Gretsch the owl, the tyrannical leader (and fabulous singer!), who steals the voice of anyone who upstages her.

McCartney is producing and contributing songs to the feature, which is being directed by Oscar nominee Timothy Reckart (Head Over Heels) from a screenplay by Jon Croker (Paddington, Paddington 2). ............
