"Munto 2" Explosions, Character Development, and More Explosions

Munto is quite an odd little film. A seemingly stand-alone fan project that garnered some really nice animation and was a pretty nice success, but a sequel wasn’t guarenteed. That is where the Japanese fans come in, as they funded the sequel out of their own pockets, something virtually unheard of in this day and […]

Though they recently kissed and made up on a long weekend in Barbados, in 2005 Disney and Pixar’s relationship came to a rocky end, and as the former dodged Wedgwood barrages it drunkenly vowed to succeed on its own in the CGI world.
