"I worked on this film for from beginning to end...two years, and the whole point was to deliver something different fromt the norm. Although I agree the story may be too convoluted at times, we were trying to take the animation and style to a new level and communicate with kids in a different manner. Although nervous about the lack of obvious gags, and adult jokes i was immensly proud of the risk that all companies took in creating something outside the box. Pixar and Dreamworks have set a standard, regards too look and content, it's about time we pushed those boudaries. P.S. Altohugh my younger nieces and nephews found some parts scary, the over ten years old, were sold out :)"
