I had occasion to stroll through DreamWorks Animation campus this afternoon. Trolls awaits release, and Boxx Baby is pushing to completion. Two animators said there was four weeks (give or take) of animation remaining on the picture, after which there's surfacing, lighting, and then the inevitable tweaking and tightening. ...

As a trade paper reported several weeks ago:

Boss Baby takes a step back from the computer-generated realism of recent features to explore the more impressionistic side of the medium, finding inspiration in the work of animation pioneers like Chuck Jones, Tex Avery and Maurice Noble.

Indeed, from the footage previewed, [the feature] plays like a throwback to classic cartoons where shapes and figures were often distorted for effect and animators could let their imaginations could run wild. ...

The picture rolls out in March.
