The time has come! The long awaited traditionally animated film “Klaus” is to be released November 8th, 2019 in theaters and November 15th, 2019 on Netflix. As most animation fans can tell you, it has been a long time coming. We have seen Klaus imagery (screen grabs), pencil tests and news on this animated feature for years. We are excited to see the return of hand drawn animation to the big screen at it finest.

Just in time for Christmas. Klaus will become a new Holiday classic that will be loved for years to come.

OFFICIAL INFO:

Klaus opens in theaters on November 8, 2019, and on Netflix, November 15, 2019.

When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) distinguishes himself as the postal academy’s worst student, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Rashida Jones), and discovers Klaus (Oscar winner J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbors, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care. An animated holiday comedy directed by Despicable Me co-creator Sergio Pablos, Klaus co-stars Joan Cusack, Will Sasso and Norm Macdonald.

    Hello!
    Please keep up the great work you are doing!
    I was happy to stumble on your Facebook page which I have already liked and which brought me here.
    I really love 2D hand drawn animation but in my country, Nigeria, most animation folks do 3D or cutout.

    I have an animation project I would love to do in 2D traditional animation and it is seeming almost impossible but I am not giving up!

    Kind Regards

    2D animation has also seen a sort of renaissance in the last couple of years – with many people yearning to see something of retro style to their animation
