Even with the talent, Anderson warns that the film has still got a couple years of production ahead of it. “It will take a couple years to do the animating,” said “The Darjeeling Limited” helmer, adding that they are about to record the voices. As for the animation, “It’s stop-motion. It’s like ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ or those Christmas specials. These [characters] have fur, so it’s not like claymation.”
Just to make the task a little more difficult, Anderson reveals that this 'animation' will be striving for realism.
“The settings will be very natural. We want to use real trees and real sand, but it’s all miniature,” he said.
Sounds cool, but let's not start getting excited until there is something to see.
