At the end of the closing credits, the Laika production logo displays tributes to its previous films (as the previous Laika film Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) did), but Mr Link himself joins the logo: he is seen walking through trees. See more »
Oh, how utterly delightful!! The animation is interesting, different, and simply beautiful. What a wonderful story and great script! The film had so many hilarious (subtle) one-liners. Most of the humor was just naturally funny. I absolutely loved the characters and Hugh Jackman voiced Sir Lionel Frost to perfection.
This is a great action adventure for young and old. Director Chris Butler's directorial debut 'ParaNorman' (2012) is one of my favorite animated films. Now, with only his second film as director, 'Missing Link' will be added to my list of favorite animated films. This was sensational. I loved it!
The ending leaves the door wide open for a sequel, and personally, I can't wait!!
