Trailer: New Calvin And Hobbes Documentary Gets Set For Release

My hunch is that many folk reading this have a pretty meaningful personal relationship with Bill Watterson‘s Calvin & Hobbes strips. I certainly do.

Enough of the strip’s fans are interesting enough – either because they’ve got a good anecdote to tell, or because they’re professionals that were influenced by Watterson – that Joel Allen Schroeder has been able to compose a documentary from their testimony.

The film was a Kickstarter project but it’s now going to break out wider, with Deadline reporting a November 15th release date, both in certain cinemas and on VOD across North America.

Here’s a trailer for the film, from its official YouTube channel.

Of course, the title Dear Mr. Watterson acknowledges the format, but there’s no sight nor sound of Calvin and Hobbes‘ creator anywhere in there – unless you count the caricature. He’s a famously reclusive man. Or, perhaps more properly, a very private man.

I find these films a very easy watch, myself, but they do tend to be a bit light. Maybe Schroeder will have found the right interview subjects to get a little more substance here – it’s certainly encouraging that his film will get a decently generous release.
