From IMDb: “The legendary Clades are a family of explorers whose differences threatened to topple their latest and most crucial mission.”

Poster Rating: B / C+ / C- / C / C- / B-

Review: (#1) An inventive landscape and attempt at homage, this design does a solid job setting up expectations for the film.

(#2) The background doesn’t make a lot of sense and the oddness of the non-human, non-canine figures in the design are notable enough, it’s just such a uninspired design.

(#3) The background is too difficult to view in detail, which thrusts our eyes towards the central image, which isn’t the least bit interesting.

(#4) Disney’s marketing department is clearly no longer up to the task of selling its films as this background-starved effort fails to excite. (#5) While the prior design was a bit dull, this one is worse with a character who isn’t terribly familiar to the viewer in a situation that feels too cute. (#6) With three segments of interest, the array of colors is brash and oppressive with more details than prior efforts have put out, which makes it more interesting as a result.

Trailer Rating: B- / B / B

Review: (#1) For an initial teaser, this is a solid effort. It doesn’t do enough to present the plot, but the fantastical wonders on display are fascinating. The next trailer will need to be more substantive, though.

(#2) Getting more information about the plot is important, but it seems quite familiar. While not exactly a re-tread of Interstellar, it has a vague similarity in this trailer design. There aren’t as many strange vistas as the first trailer, but there’s more capable humor at use.

(#3) This latest trailer gives us a better understanding of the plot, but also wastes a lot of its comic potential, giving away far too many elements of the film in a third outing. While it’s nice to have three distinct trailers in release, getting too much information can make a film look less appealing.

Oscar Prospects:

A Best Animated Feature nomination seems likely since it’s not a sequel.
