About Missing Link

Official Description: The charismatic Sir Lionel Frost considers himself to be the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters. Sir Lionel’s last chance for acceptance by the adventuring elite rests on traveling to America’s Pacific Northwest to prove the existence of a legendary creature. A living remnant of Man’s primitive ancestry — the missing link.

The cast for Missing Link is spectacular. Just look at the list below of actors lending their voices to this charming animated film. Behind the camera, the talent continues in the form of director Chris Butler who previously directed the Oscar-nominated ParaNorman in 2012. Butler also wrote the 2016 animated hit film Kubo and the Two Strings. There is a powerhouse team behind this film, and the trailer reveals a beautiful piece of animated splendor.

This movie had me at “writer of Kubo and the Two Strings.” Even before I knew that, though, the animation was a gorgeous selling point. It’s visually stunning, to say the least wtih a healthy mix of old-school and new-school techniques. The trailer for Missing Link checks off a lot of boxes that make it a film to keep an eye on. I even already like the idea of the franchise continuing on with Jackman’s myth hunter finding more legendary creatures.
