I dunno about this one. The story seems like fun, but it sure is CGI-looking...and not in an especially good way.

I hope Laika doesn't stray too far from their roots.

Yeh I can’t quite work out what they’re trying to achieve. The art of Stop Motion is that it isn’t completely polished. That our own hands have done the work. Helped craft it by hand. Not computer. We’ll see eh

They are making animated films with a mix of stop motion and cg. Bringing the best of both worlds? I think their target is the world, not us, so they are making it look as good as they can. I will refrain from any judgement until I've seen it. Paranorman used a good bit of CG but it didn't bother me. I mean, they have brought lots of innovation to the art form of stop-motion.

I look forward to it 
I kind of neat knowing the main characters are Stop Motion Puppets and they still have to make armatures and costumes silicone parts
Hope the story is good
