This is a novel approach and, I think, a rather successful one. The following short film is our first look at characters and situations from the upcoming Dreamworks animation, Home. This self contained little movie stands in lieu of a trailer. It was directed by Todd Wilderman, who is the feature’s head of story.
Don’t expect to see that footage in the film, consider it a prologue.
Home has been adapted, and loosely, from the kids’ book The True Meaning of Smekday. That takes place on Earth and centres on a young human girl adapting to life in a post alien-invsion context.
I’m hopeful about this one. Home will be in US cinemas this November.
