Skydance Animation

Who is Skydance Animation you ask?  A new animation studio based in Santa Monica, California that was formed in formed in 2017.  So far they have made some small projects, but recently have made some big acquisitions.  They are working side by side with Apple, just like Pixar did before Disney bought them which leads many to believe this studio will have a lot of creative freedom with Apple.  But even crazier... they hired many Pixar, Disney, and Dreamworks greats.

Skydance Animation hired former Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios CCO John Lasseter as Head of Animation in late January 2019. On April 2, 2020, composer Alan Menken (guy behind the music of all the Disney classic you knew from the 90s and onward) revealed that he is working alongside Lasseter on a soundtrack for future films. In February 2022, it was announced that Brad Bird will revive his long-dormant project Ray Gunn for Skydance Animation.

On March 16, 2022, Rich Moore (Zootopia, Wreck It Ralph) revealed that he has entered into an exclusive, multi-year overall deal with Skydance Animation

Their first big releases will be later this year on Apple TV and Amazon Prime.  Nothing has been shown of the upcoming animated films yet, but it should be exciting to see what this new studio with tons of great talent can make.

Apple's studio (Skydance) has their first movie coming out!  It looks original, fun, and good so far!

LUCK!  And it stars a thicc woman who bad luck.  There are many opportunities in this for sneezing too!  A dragon who sniffs out bad luck with big nostrils.  This trailer even has a close up of of the main character, Sam's nose.


It premiers August 5, 2022 on Apple TV+.

Apple Original Films replaced Paramount as a production company on the film, with Apple TV+ distributing. John Lasseter is the film's director. Kiel Murray, screenwriter for Cars (2006) and Cars 3 (2017), was also hired to rewrite the screenplay for this film.

I think that looks pretty fun!  I like her design.  Quite generic, but nice.  Also the cat is adorable!

I think she looks cute and the characters look good.  I could totally see her sneezing from all that glitters that falls on her.

She's so thicc!  Already several butt shots. You know the animators loved having her as a character to work with.  Who knows how many hidden files and animations they made....

Innocent enough looking movie.  I hope it does well for them on their streaming service.

I really do hope this movie does well.  Of course we won't see any money numbers since it's all streaming.... but the studio sold the film and Apple paid them handsomely.  So I guess we just have to hope for positive film reviews.  Exciting to see a new studio emerge.

This looks promising enough.  A safe bet for a new studio.
