Anyway, they got to see some clips from the flick and seem fairly impressed:
...as far as CG animated films go these days, nothing much outside of Pixar has really impressed me (from both a technical and story telling standpoint), but I'm definitely willing to give this a chance. I like the fact that it looks very action-oriented and not a bunch of anthropomorphic animals.
Sounds like a vote of confidence to me. Can you believe that just a week or so ago we were wondering whether the movie was in serious danger?
