Director Louis Leterrier confirmed at the New York Comic Con 2018 that this series will rely on puppetry instead of computer animation. CGI will only be used to remove puppeteers, especially in scenes that involve green screens. See more »
Why aren't more fantasy movies/series like this? It's unique, beautiful, moving and enthralling... It's evident that so much effort and attention to detail has been put into every little thing; the costumes, the sets, the voice acting. I am so glad one of my favourite childhood movies has been brought back and I hope the younger generation will learn to appreciate it as well.
Not everything is better with tons of CGI. Brian Froud and Jim Henson are a fantastic duo.
