Gorgeous French animation intriguingly set within a half-finished painting, which follows the characters (left in various states of completion by the artist) as they journey off the canvas and towards self-fulfillment.
Inspired Disney remake vastly improves upon its own forgotten 70's adventure that tells the tale of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon. Filmed in New Zealand, with special effects by the Weta Workshop.
An all-star lineup of comedic talent livens up this otherwise undemanding tale of animals running wild. Louis C.K. voices a spoiled terrier named Max who's routine is upended when his owner adopts another unruly canine.
Another gorgeously animated tale from Laika studios (BOXTROLLS, etc) about a young boy named Kubo who must locate a magical suit of armour worn by his late father in order to defeat a vengeful spirit from the past.
