It seems to be a big day for movie photos with two more popping up online, both first looks at animated work from two major studios. First up comes the first shot from “Piper,” the new Alan Barillaro-directed animated short that will accompany Disney and Pixar’s “Finding Dory” opening June 17th. The six-minute short is about a hungry baby sandpiper learning to overcome hydrophobia.
Then there’s a first look photo from Guillermo del Toro and DreamWorks Animation’s “Trollhunters”. Originally set up at Disney, the animated feature has been penned and directed by del Toro who based it on a young-adult book he developed almost a decade ago.
The story is set in a fantastical world wrapped around the residents of the fictional suburb of Arcadia who make a startling discovery that the world beneath their hometown is as vast and mind-blowing as anything on the surface. del Toro has served as executive producer on several DWA films but this is his first directorial effort for them.
