With the release of their first film in 2002, Blue Sky Studios quickly proved itself to be an animation studio of note. Maybe never ranking alongside Walt Disney Animation Studios or Pixar, but it would definitely be mentioned among the secondary tier of animation studios.
Unfortunately, Blue Sky Studios went defunct in April 2021 after Disney acquired 21st Century Fox. To pay tribute to them, I’ve decided to make a top 13 list ranking their (conveniently 13) films from my least favorite to my favorite!
Once again, it’s Oscars season! Listed below are my predictions for the winners of this year’s 90th Academy Awards ceremony! Like usual, I leave the top 6 awards for the end (Best Animated Feature, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Picture). The nominees that I think SHOULD win will be in red,the nominees that I think WILL win will be in blue, and if they’re the same, they will be both red and blue. Enjoy and let me know what you think in the comments below!
I know this post is a couple of days late, but the nominations for the upcoming 90th Academy Awards have been released. Click here for a list of all the nominees, but the animation-related ones are listed below:
BEST ANIMATED FEATURE:
The Boss Baby The Breadwinner Coco Ferdinand Loving Vincent
BEST ANIMATED SHORT:
Dear Basketball Garden Party Lou Negative Space Revolting Rhymes
What do you all think of these nominees, in particular? I haven’t seen The Boss Baby yet, but really? It’s Oscar-worthy? I find that very hard to believe! But, I’m so glad that Glen Keane’s Dear Basketball has made it to the list!
I will post my Oscars predictions in the next couple of weeks!
The first trailer for Blue Sky Studios’ upcoming animated film, Ferdinand, has debuted.
Based on a book by Munro Leaf, Ferdinand is about a bull who would rather spend time sniffing flowers than fighting in a bullring. I’m honestly not pleased with what we’ve seen so far though. I feel the timelessness of the book is lost in this upcoming film. Not to mention: John Cena is the voice of Ferdinand? Really?
It’s sad that I’m more looking forward to the Captain Underpants movie than this film. Ferdinand is set to hit cinemas on December 15, 2017. What do you think of this trailer? Are you interested in the movie?
As the year comes to a close, it comes time again to prepare ourselves for the animated films being released next year! So read on below to find a list of the theatrical animated films set to be released in 2017! Like usual, I’m only listing the ones that have confirmed US release dates at the moment, hence this list is mostly composed of films from the major animation studios. Enjoy!
