I didn't think much of this film until I found out the subtext behind it
I'm gonna blow your mind with a bit of information: this entire film is a metaphor for the animation industry. Yeah, the big company owners trying to force what's new onto society and tricking them into thinking that's what they want is making fun of how Hollywood rarely ever greenlights hand-drawn films anymore, and for a CG studio to make that statement, that's pretty commendable. So why do I give this three stars? Because even with the brilliant subtext, it's still pretty generic as a film in itself. It had some clever jokes here and there and give it props for making the fart joke an actual character trait instead of something thrown in for the heck of it, but at the same time, I don't find the characters particularly interesting, but the story is more interesting than I initially thought. The animations are also really good, but I expect that from Blue Sky.
