It wasn’t so very long ago that CG animation felt cutting-edge and new, but these days it’s become so ubiquitous we hardly even notice it anymore. Instead, what feels fresh again are more traditional animation methods. DreamWorks Animation’s Me and My Shadow combines CG and hand-drawn animation to tell the story of “the world’s most boring human” Daniel (voiced by Book of Mormon‘s Josh Gad) and his bored shadow (voiced by Bill Hader), who longs for a more exciting life.
The shadow finally gets his chance, albeit not necessarily in the way he’d hoped. When events in the shadow world put Daniel’s life in danger, Shadow Dan breaks the rules and takes control of his person. The two then set off on an adventure to stop the shadow villain and his nefarious plans to take over the human world. Check out the adorable first poster after the jump.
