Nuke The Fridge recently had a very unique opportunity to delve behind the scenes of LAIKA’s newest stop motion animated film, Missing Link. This is the same animation house that created stop motion animated classics, Coraline, Paranorman, The Boxtrolls, and Kubo and the Two Strings. The masterminds behind their newest film pulled back the magician’s curtain and showed us what it takes to bring these animated classics to life. Check out the videos below! Missing Link is in theatres April 12, 2019!
Missing Link Plot and details:
Tired of living a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Link — 8 feet tall and covered in fur — recruits fearless explorer Sir Lionel Frost to guide him on a journey to find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, the trio encounters their fair share of peril as they travel to the far reaches of the world. Through it all, they learn that sometimes one can find a family in the places one least expects.
