“All trailers are appropriate to the feature presentation.” The feature in question was Wong Kar-Wai’s 2046. The trailer was for the all new digitally animated Magic Roundabout. Appropriate?

Watching the trailer with a growing sense of incredulity it appears that we are in Thunderbirds territory. What appears to be a state of the art computer animated action adventure starring characters whose very appeal was that they were not state of the art or well animated. Indeed the largest part of the appeal was that the story we were being told bore little relation to the original French tale. I am not sure if this trailer would be appropriate to any film it would be partnered with, if only for the fact that Robbie Williams does the voice of Dougal.
