PG | | Adventure, Drama, Family
Yearning for escape and adventure, a young boy runs away from home and sails to an island filled with creatures that take him in as their king.
In the 1980s, the first serious production was started, backed by Disney. It would have blended traditionally animated characters with computer-generated settings. While an animation test was completed as well as a few other story elements, John Lasseter was ordered to halt production (it didn't help that the combination of traditional animation and CGI annoyed some traditionalists in upper management), and the film proceeded no further with the company.
Hey, Claire. Wanna see something great?
Claire: Who else was there?
Max: It's an igloo! I made it.
Claire: Yeah, my brother.
Max: Hey, Claire!
Claire: I can't. We're supposed to go to my dad's that weekend.
Max: The snowplows left some snow across the street, and I dug a hole into it.
When Max is falling head over heels down the sand dune, his crown comes flying off twice.
The logos for Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures, and Village Roadshow Pictures are covered with Max's scribblings.
