I was up early checking Apple Trailers to see if our trailer was up yet - and as I was riding my motorcycle to work it happened!
When we started this movie five years ago, I thought it would be a blast, because everything was wide open.  In a world without cars, jobs, secret formulas, villains, etc. we would be able to do anything we wanted.  It didn't take long for reality to sink in - this was going to be a lot tougher than we thought.  Staring into this limitless world that we would build according to our rules, we were suddenly coming to grip with just how wide open this world really was.  Like when you've finished all your chores and you finally find time to do a drawing - you run to your table, open your drawing pad (or your computer, if you're more modern than me) and stare into a blank page.  And if you're like me, it's not very long before you are wishing you had just a few boundaries.  Should I draw a monster?  A witch?  A bunny?  A bunny riding a monster fleeing a witch?  Ugh.  At that point I begin scribbling, looking for something.  It can take hours or days before I find it.

So we began the search for the Croods story.  No matter what, we wanted to end with a balance of scale, humor and depth.  And I feel we accomplished that.  This trailer focuses mainly on scale.  Later trailers will dig into the humor.  Enjoy!

I just want to say I'm a HUGE fan of Lilo and Stitch, it's inspired me so much, and Stitch is my favorite Disney character! (Sadly the "Stitch's great escape" was closed when I went to Disney world.)

However, I have a few questions...

1. What inspired you to create Lilo and Stitch?

2. When Lilo asks Cobra Bubbles if he's ever killed anyone and he doesn't reply... Has he ever killed?

3. Which experiment is your favorite? (Not including Stitch)

4. What's your opinion on the anime?

5. Do you think Lilo would really abandon Stitch? (I believe she'd take him with her to college and she'd never leave him)

6. How do you feel about Stitch losing his intelligence and power in the anime?

7. Do Nani and David ever get married?

I'd appreciate it if you could reply, because I've been wondering about this often.

i don't see any kittens in your art, lol I was kinda hoping you drew some cats. or even show me what your cats would look like at least. besides Ogo. like if Lilo and stitch went to an animal shelter.

Hi! I LOVE your mermaid work! I have a random question that I've been wondering for a while now...

Can you tell me why Mushu wasn’t able to awaken the Great Stone Dragon? There is a theory that TGSD was inside Mulan the whole time, and that *she* was the family’s protector. Is that accurate?

Lilo and Stitch was my favourite Disney movie when I was a little kid! I’m so glad I have been introduced to your other artworks as an early 20-something!
