“The Sea Beast” dropped on Netflix over the summer to positive reviews but very little recognition from awards voting bodies until we got to the Annie Awards. Afterward, it was nominated for Best Animated Feature Film at this year’s Academy Awards. This is one of the year’s best animated feature films with an epic scope, beautiful animation, and excellent voice acting. The film marks the Netflix debuts for the former Disney director Chris Williams (“Bolt,” “Big Hero 6” and “Moana“) and producer Jed Schlanger (“The Boss Baby” & “How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World“). The two of them spent some time talking with us about their work on the film, which you can listen to down below. Enjoy, and be sure to consider the film when casting your ballots this awards season. Thank you.
