YouTube The Robinsons

I’m trying to remember if there is a Disney Animated Feature I’ve heard less about than "Meet The Robinsons". Well there was that forgettable "Home On The Range". It worries me when Disney isn’t spending a ton of dough promoting their film. So I guess I should be comforted by the fact that not only has Disney set up a YouTube page for Robinsons, they’re shelling out the bucks for a Superbowl Ad as well.

I actually am very interested in seeing "Meet The Robinsons". I’ve never read the source material, but the clips I’ve seen are visually interesting. That’s more than I can say for "Home On The Range". I was really looking forward to Chris Sander’s "American Dog" but that’s been canceled. Sigh. Also can someone tell me why when the movie is just two months away most of the links on the official site don’t yet work?

"Meet the Robinsons" opens March 30th.

  1. I’ve read the book. From what I’ve seen in the trailers, they’re using the characters of the Robinson family, but a lot of what’s going on in the trailers (time travel, the villain, the dinosaur…) was done for the movie.

    The basic plot of the book: an unnamed character goes to visit his friend, Wilbur Robinson. They go through the house (meeting Wilbur’s very odd family) looking for Grandpa’s teeth. Cute and fun, but there’s not enough there to build a movie on in and of itself.

  2. Meet the Robinsons is based on a book by William Joyce, an amazing author/illustrator. He’s the creator of Rolie Polie Olie which airs on the Disney Channel. He was also involved with the movie Robots. Check out his books at Amazon or any local book store. They’re beautiful and packed with all sorts of wonderful details for adults. Most of his books and stories are pretty short, so I am interested to see how they’ve extended Robinsons into a full feature.
