Holy crap, this looks amazing. I don’t know about you henchies, but I am a huuuuge Wes Anderson fan! He’s probably my favorite director. And he’s got a new stop motion animated film coming out on March 23 called Isle of Dogs. This is the first I’m hearing about it, and we’ve got an amazing new trailer!
Holy cow that looks good. Fantastic Mr. Fox, his last stop motion movie, is a masterpiece. And Isle of Dogs looks damn good from the first trailer! I love having a new Wes Anderson movie to look forward to!
Question for the group: have we passed the point where original Pixar movies are guaranteed to be amazing? I enjoyed Inside Out, sure, but I don’t think it holds a candle to stuff like The Incredibles, Wall-E or any of the Toy Storys. Whereas stuff like Brave and The Good Dinosaur (which I still haven’t seen) disappoint. So when we see the trailer for Coco…are we guaranteed an amazing movie?
It looks amazing, sure! I’ll gladly grant it that. But when we’ve got stuff like Wreck-It Ralph and Moana coming out of Disney, and Kubo and the Two Strings (spoiler alert: he had three strings) from Laika, are we really just going to roll over and let Pixar stay at the top of the hill? I suppose we’ll see when Coco comes out later this year.
For awhile now, Marvel has been doing this fun cartoon thing where Noah Sterling narrates classic Marvel stories. It’s fun. And now they’ve done a recap of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, one of my favorite comics!
So watch the cartoon and go read Unbeatable Squirrel Girl by Ryan North and Erica Henderson. It’s great!
It probably says a lot about me that I spent the entirety of this trailer waiting for some classic Star Wars character to cameo. I didn’t care who, just somebody. Boba Fett, maybe? They do talk about Mandalore a lot.
But by the end of it, when the only Easter Egg we got was X-Wing fighters, I had to accept that the final season of Star Wars: Rebels needs to stand on its own. No more Darth Maul. No Obi-Wan Kenobi. No Boba Fett. Just let these characters tell their story to the end.
Because it will be the end, right? Ezra and Kanan can’t still be around by the time we reach Rogue One and A New Hope, right? Even if Kanan and Hera make an awesome couple. There can’t be a couple of scrub Jedi in the Rebellion when Luke Skywalker shows up.
