    turns out he's both

    he's a jack of all trades you see

  • BlankzillaBlankzilla The Year 198X Being Xtreme to the MaxxRegistered User regular
    I think they went with the recognizable characters for the trailer since it is a funky concept

    Jack is meant to be the main/PoV character that brings the team together from what I've read and since I can't find anything about someone voicing the Sandman and he doesn't speak a word in the trailer I think he might be mute. What with the whole sleeping thing.

    Hm

    I just looked up the books, it doesn't look like much of the series is actually published yet

    Also the Man in the Moon is a figure there

    It definitely seems interesting

    that Sandman doesn't look right at all!

    why isn't his skin deathly pale and his eyes hidden in shadow under a mess of black hair??

    This looks okay

    Pixar films about the wonder of childhood never interest me that much

    on the other hand, can't doubt that cast and I do like attempts to use mythology and magic beliefs in a modern way

    seems like this might be something Neil Gaiman or Alan Moore would write

    so yeah, might check it out if it ticks those boxes

    Ah, it's dreamworks. Fair enough.

    Toy Story and Monsters Inc are about taking elements of childhood and exploring them quite deeply

    and the idea of being a child allows access to a state of wonder and fantasy

    How to Train your Dragon was actually a dreamworks film and it also had themes about the wonder of children (in that only a child could be so trusting as to accept the idea of the Dragons as allies and friends, not enemies)

    anyway, films about the wonder of childhood are not really my thing anyway, but as I said, this does long interesting in a Gaiman inspired kind of way

    That had nothing to do with Hiccup being a child or particularly trusting and everything to do with him being unusually thoughtful, observant and empathetic.

    This movie looks amazing.

    Also if you say bad stuff about pixar on these forums you are gonna have a fight on your hands.

    I was not expecting anything good from How to Train your Dragon and then it was amazing!

    Before that I thought dreamworks was just kind of shitty overall. But that regained my trust in them. Now I'm hoping this is going to be as good.

    Also I do not think how to train your dragon had anything to do with child something whatever.

    I dunno

    there is often an element in stories about children being unusually thoughtful, observant and empathetic

    generally it's the empathetic and thoughtful parts which are linked to the idealism of youth

    but anyway, it did seem to me when I watched How To Train Your Dragon that it was certainly a story about children and their nature and the relationship they have with adults and that included elements of children being more naive and willing to trust than adults. If we consider that Hiccup was unable to kill his dragon because he had not yet seen them kill enough of his friends to destroy any empathy for them, then his youth does factor in.

    Anyway, that whole area doesn't interest me much and it seems to be something that this movie will look at

    but like I said, from a fantasy/fairy tale perspective it seems like it could be fun and the Voice Acting is likely to be superb so who knows. I wasn't that blown away by the trailer and I'm unlikely to go and see it in the cinema but maybe if people whose opinions I often agree with on the forums like it I will check it out.

    the australian and inexplicably badass easter bunny is second only to the ridiculously pretty sandman when it comes to character design

    when was the last time someone focused on the 'sand' part of sandman rather than the kind of creepy nature of his job!

    I really hope my guess is right and Sandman is mute

    he looks adorable and fun and him miming everything or communicating via sand constructs would be the best

    I don't know what happened in Dreamworks to make them start doing their own thing

    But its pretty cool
