Trailer Discussion
Studio Ghibli has instant prestige and that helps in every Oscar branch, including this one. This story is a bit Thumbelina-esque. Multiple suitors pursue a princess who is only the size of a finger. It came. It was seen. It conquered critics hearts and the box office. Crass merchandise opportunity sure but that might not stop Oscar since it's so well regarded and fun
Oscar's animation branch doesn't go for sequels. Except when they do! And the original was very well loved. We shall see now that Hiccup and Toothless are grown up. If this film is finished in time, it could be a major threat for the gold. The Secret of Kells was incredible after all. This is "the story of the last Seal Child's journey home"

Guillermo del Toro is producing The dog and his boy do some space travel. Based on the old series. Already a hit. a group of aliens (led by the voice of Steve Martin) are looking for a new home.
