This month a new animated film is released every week: A Christmas Carol, Planet 51, Fantastic Mr Fox, and The Princess and the Frog. To my knowledge, this has not happened before and is a great sign of the state of the industry. Usually we get one or two animated movies every few months with a few more in the summer. But with four films released in four weeks, the animation industry is truly growing. Which is awesome because it means more jobs for my friends and coworkers. If you haven't seen an animated film this month (or a special effects film like Twilight or 2012) go treat yourself now to some fine entertainment.
Another strange fact, not only is this the first month four animated movies have been released but it is also the first month movies with 3 different mediums of animation have been released: 2D, 3D, stop motion, and motion capture.
