I am in no way affiliated with this film. I'm promoting it simply because I think it has huge potential and I'd love to see it on the big screen. As a fan of The Iron Giant movie (released in 1999), which was done in cartoon form and was surprisingly touching, I would be very interested in seeing something similar done with real actors. So would my 11-year-old son, of course!
