Noting that the musical story of Vivo, a kinkaju with the voice of Lynn-Manuel Miranda, tells how to get past grief, director and co-author Kirk Dee Mika notes that “there are times when we have to learn to sing a new song” and it sparked an introduction Gabi, a 9-year-old (voiced by Inarali Sima) with whom Vivo embarks on a journey. “We represented Gabi as a character whose design and spirit were the complete opposite of Vivo and the world he was used to. Where Vivo is the epitome of control, Gabi represents chaos, ”he explains. “Our writer Quiara Hudes, who created the heroine, wanted her to be portrayed as a real girl with a variety of bodies. It was important for us to demonstrate a strong independent female character, whose individuality was reflected in each design choice. We liked the idea that she had an asymmetrical hairstyle because she probably cut her hair in the mirror herself and probably dyed her hair purple with her own chalk in the bathroom. And Gabi, who is by no means a cookie heroine because she’s a little rounder than most kids in cartoons, always feels 100 percent great in her own skin. In fact, it was the inspiration for the anthem that Lynn wrote for her in “My Own Drum”. Gabi is not a girl who wants the world to accept her because she accepts herself. “

The villain is DWA Boss Baby continued – Dr. Erwin Armstrong with the voice of Jeff Goldblum, who is considered the smartest child in the world. “We wanted to capture his eccentric charm, even if he plays the villain of our Baby Boss,” says director Tom McGrath. “Armstrong has a big clear mouth because he is talkative and eats a lot of candy, hence his slightly“ ruby ”baby body. Armstrong disguises himself as an adult to hide his little secret. His persona professor wears a wig, eyebrows, false teeth and lamb chops to help him deceive all parents. ” The biggest problem with this disguise, says director Raymond Siebach, is the body of the robot he rides. “These mechanics were inspired Terminator while his silhouette resembles characters like Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Doom, ”he says. “A poor body creates a beautiful cabin in which a child can sit and use controls, and skinny legs give him the height and maneuverability needed for animation. To complete his design, we dressed him in a tuxedo with tails for the climax and the big final brawl. ”

In this animated film, a young boy lives among the thick smoke from the chimneys of his isolated city, wanting to see the stars. One Halloween night he meets The ashes, a man from the rubbish, and their adventures begin. “In history, garbage symbolizes dreams that people have thrown away. The sky over the Chimney City is completely closed from the smoke generated by burning city garbage. explains director Yusuke Hirota through an interpreter. “For those who have given up on their dreams, Pupel, a man born of rubbish and made of rubbish, is an undesirable and unpleasant presence – something that the residents of Komin-Gorod just don’t want to see. But dreams – pure, innocent, unpredictable – can sometimes make us brave, and our Ashes also symbolize this power of dreams. Created from things that smell old and nostalgic, we designed Poupelle to be familiar ”.
