I agree that it looks different from Pixar's usual films, but this still looks to be leagues above anything that's come out of Illumination.After producing a fourth Toy Story, something original is the least Pixar could do at this point. I'll probably go see it, but as others have said, the artstyle doesn't remind me that much of Pixar, it looks more like something Illumination or Dreamworks would have made.
That might be interesting. Or setup as a safe urban fantasy setting, but ohshit the Elder Gods have awoken. I wish I wasn't feeling so burned by Disney/Pixar recently.I think this movie is going to go full post apocalypse.
You see everything is nice an suburban, but then shit hits the fan and everything reverts back to Untamed fantasy world but now some people have advanced technology while others have awakened powerful arcane magic that was sealed away.
I mean it certainly has that feeling. Like it's not Shrek where everything is already a tongue and cheek fantasy world. Doing Fantasy Creatures BUT NOW THEY'RE JUST LIKE US! is incredibly gay and a waste considering the genre. The Van brother's insistence on a quest while the other brother trying to say that "it's not a quest" certainly also lends to the theme of old fantasy vs contemporary.
