    Storks



    I saw the trailer for this a few months ago, and was sold immediately. The family doesn't seem interesting at all though, looks like the generic; parents work too much and has to make room for their child. I hope the movie is more the adventure of the stork and girl trying to deliver the baby.



    That pigeon is clearly supposed to be the comic relief (By the looks of it this doesn't really need a 'relief' for that), but I really hope he doesn't end up being annoying.



    Thoughts? I'm definitely seeing this.

    I was afraid this was going to be a godawful "Lions Gate" CGI..
    was relieved to see its WB animation studios, so it cant be too bad.

    I was ready to pass it off as typical "Norm of the North" waist of CGI.. but the newer trailers are making me consider maybe bumping it up one respect level.. hope it doesnt betray my limited faith in it.

    This really doesn't look Norm Of The North level. I mean I already said I think it looks good, but it does have some childish things that might get annoying like those wolves. They're pretty funny, but it feels like something they'd beat the hell out of. Hope not. Also has characters act "Quirky xDD" which I'm not a big fan of, but doesn't seem too annoying. We'll see. I'm not sure wether or not to go watch it in the theatre or wait until it's out online.

    It looks ok. Definitely won't go to the theatre to watch it but might catch it on tv a year or two down the line.

    I'm really alone in thinking this looks interesting?

    The jokes and characters just seem really bland and generic.

    Well they seem to wanna make Tulip the unique, "quirky" character which really isn't unique at this point, but it's nothing that puts me off for being generic. Don't know much about Junior, but I find the concept of storks switching from babies to packages and turning the simple "The stork brings the baby" into a movie set in today. And the adventure they'll have on the way seems interesting.

    It could be interesting. Trailers seem to be mislesding anyway (especially for kids films) so you never know.

    I find it kinda neat that Junior supposedly has an injury, possibly broken arm, throughout most of the movie, but it's not mentioned in any trailer.

    That right there grabs me.. Drone deliveries but with storks. The last person to animate stork characters to my liking was Chuck Jones.. I kinda wish this would have that WB Jones bird stumbling alcoholic with the tilted hat.. A whole story around him would be awesome.
    Stretching out short subjects into feature length films has always been a Hollywood specialty (The Grinch - WhereTheWildThingsRoam, et'al)

    When Disney decided to make Snow White, the first movie length animation, many feared it wouldnt fly because the public was used to 20yrs of cartoons as silly 7min shorts.. Forcing the format to sustain a long movie wouldnt hold the audiences interest after the first 10mins..
