Hollywood works in cycles, which means there is indeed a third animated yeti movie coming to theaters in the span of a year. But Dreamworks’ Abominable looks like it deserves much, much more than to be fodder for a meme.
On the heels of Warner Animation’s Smallfoot and Laika’s Missing Link comes Abominable, an animated film about a girl in modern-day Shanghai who accidentally stumbles upon a yeti separated from its homeland. Hijinks ensue and money gets made, right? Not so fast — Abominable promises to be more than a hackneyed kid’s film aiming at the lowest common denominator. A culturally rich approach coupled with soaring, achingly gorgeous animation that recalls the best of Dreamworks‘ acclaimed How to Train Your Dragon series makes Abominable look anything but. Watch the Abominable trailer below.
