In the Media:
“The film is a straight-up visual dazzler. At the helm alone for the first time, Chris Williams, co-director of Big Hero 6 and Moana, supervises the creation of busy cities, rich natural environments and — remember when water proved such an issue for digital animators? — convincingly damp walls of angry ocean. Leaning in towards photorealism, the character animation deals better with humans than the fantastic animals, but Red Bluster emerges as a charming blend of Toothless in How to Train Your Dragon and the less dream-like modes of Studio Ghibli.” - The Irish Times, Donald Clarke
“The Sea Beast is so realistically rendered, so detailed and physical, that much of the time it feels like a live-action adventure. It’s so thoroughly immersive it might make you believe in sea monsters.” - New York Magazine and Vulture, Bilge Ebiri
