Covid be thwarted! The Animated Views team gathers virtually for the first of our AV Roundtable Flashbacks, revisiting anniversary year films from the past couple of decades, blasting off with Fox Animation’s Titan A.E.!

Ghez speaks to us about the sixth and final volume of the landmark series, which ventures into the modern era while also harkening back to the beginning.

A beloved Chinese tale takes form, as the legendary animator/director collaborates with a team of creatives to craft a uniquely touching and personal film.

While the magic of the original might not quite be fully recaptured here, Trolls World Tour is nevertheless cheery, non-demanding escapism that might be exactly what the doctor ordered during these uncertain times.

The Willoughbys 

The Willoughbys is full of contradictions: a story that’s dark but sweet, animation that’s not top-notch but charming, and characters who are dysfunctional but likable. If this what we can expect from streaming services, sign me up!

Onward 

Onward is classic Pixar — great storytelling combined with charismatic leads in a unique world wrapped up in beautiful animation. Definitely take the initiative to see this one because it is a campaign worth playing.
