Laika has been a stop-motion animation studio that has made quite the name for itself in recent years. Whether it’s Coraline or Kubo and the Two Strings, the studio has separated itself doing things the way Pixar used to. One great movie every few years. Next up on their roster is Missing Link. The synopsis is as follows:
The charismatic Sir Lionel Frost (Voiced by Hugh Jackman) considers himself to be the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters. The trouble is none of his small-minded high-society peers seems to recognize this. Sir Lionel’s last chance for acceptance by the adventuring elite rests on traveling to America’s Pacific Northwest to prove the existence of a legendary creature. A living remnant of Man’s primitive ancestry. The Missing Link.
Missing Link also features the voices of Zoe Saldana, Zach Galifianakis, Stephen Fry, Emma Thompson, Timothy Olyphant, Matt Lucas, David Walliams, Ching Valdez-Aran, and Amrita Acharia. It is directed by Chris Butler and is set to hit theaters April 12, 2019. Check out the first trailer for the film below:
