"Our unique animation style allows both the conjuring of a world long gone, and the flowing, playful expression of memory and imagination," the director said in a statement, per Variety. "It's been a fun, creative journey to incorporate things like 3D graphics into a live action shoot to help bring this story to life."
The stars who will give life to the animated characters include Zachary Levi, Glen Powell, Jack Black, and Josh Wiggins among others.
