RT Explores the Art of Horton Hears A Who

Blue Sky's Chris Wedge and Mike Thurmeier take RT through the movie.

The Art of Horton Hears a Who!

Mike Thurmeier, Senior Supervising Animator on Horton:
I was nervous because of the Chuck Jones animation - the only time we've seen Whoville animated was in The Grinch, which is a classic - but I knew we could do it. We were all hungry for the challenge. It seemed like a good match for Jimmy and Steve too, because Steve is so strong artistically, he's got a great design sense, and Jimmy's so funny, he's got a great sense of humour.

Looks good. I'm a little worried about all the star's personalities becoming a little too overbearing with all of them together. Could work though.

I actually wasn't too hopeful about it, but it really works. There are a few moments that are a little too Dreamworks for comfort, but on the whole it's suitably Pixar. The stars don't star it up in the way they would in Shark Tale or something, and Blue Sky continues its sterling tradition of creating brilliant supporting characters who add nothing to the main plot.

There's a Japanimation sequence that had me in tears.

Best Seuss by a long, long way.

You just amped up my interest in this flick. Not that I wasn't already interested, but yeah. ;-)

I'm a little concerned about the script, but the look of this is absolutely gorgeous, rivals anything Pixar has done.

Reviews look good so far, I might actually give this a shot in the theatre.

when i saw the first preview of this, i thought it looked HORRIBLE- and this was one of my fav books as a kid! after looking at some other footage and screens, i may give this a chance. still skeptical though.

I was actually leaning toward going...but then I heard they put an REO Speedwagon song in the movie.

I wouldn't call myself a purist, but I have to draw the line for a Seuss movie somewhere...and that's way over the line. MAYBE on dvd...

He looks handsome. I just saw his profile on millionaire&celeb dating site

RichMatchMaking.com. It is said he has a crush on wealthy young women on that site.
