Twitter Capsule:
Adorable. Appealing heroes, unnerving villain. Appetite for invention. Detailed mise-en-scène. Mature emotional claims.
Won't equal Frozen's receipts but comparably entertaining and a riskier departure from Disney's generic and stylistic norms. Open to multiple readings and cultural frames. Your move, Pixar.
