Mr. Link recruits explorer Sir Lionel Frost to help find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, this trio of explorers travel the world to help their new friend.
The first Laika movie where the main character is not a child or pre-teen. The title character from Coraline (2009) was eleven, as was Norman from ParaNorman (2012); Eggs from The Boxtrolls (2014) was ten; Kubo from Kubo and the Two Strings (2016), twelve.
I, uh, wanted to say thank you. For what you said back there.
Sir Lionel Frost: Don't mention it.
Mr. Link: Okay.
A map of the United States is shown in the film. It shows several states which weren't yet states as of the film's 1886 setting (for example, Arizona didn't become a state until 1912).
The closing credits are written as notations on various objects that Sir Lionel and Mr. Link use to plan their next adventure. At one point, Mr. Link drags a plate of cookies across the frame and eats one off-screen.
At the end of the credits, Mr. Link finishes off a drawing of him and Sir Lionel smiling next to one another.
