Toys in the Attic is a Czech stop-motion animated feature that looks freaking awesome and I want to see it sooooooo badly. I need to see it. I will kill every single one of you to see it! Okay, I’ll only kill most of you… The Czech-language version has won a whole bunch of awards, and now it’s getting an English dub and release in America. Jiri Barta is the director, and he made a lot of animated films a long time ago but seemed to take a long time off. Toys in the Attic originally premiered in 2010, and I’m surprised I didn’t hear much about it.
The plot: In an attic full of discarded junk, a pretty doll called Buttercup lives in an old trunk together with her friends, the marionette Sir Handsome, the lovable Teddy Bear, a Mechanical Mouse and the plasticine creature, Laurent. When Buttercup is snatched and taken off to the Land of Evil, her pals set out on a wondrous and daring adventure to rescue her from the all-powerful Head of State.
The English version will feature the voices of Forest Whitaker, Cary Elwes, Joan Cusack, Vivian Schilling, and Marcelo Tubert.
