“We wanted to invigorate our retelling with emotional sincerity, an open heart and a grand yearning for adventure.”
He continued: “Hundreds of incredible artists spent many years bringing this film to the screen. I’m excited for audiences to see their work, to go on this ride and to rediscover an evergreen tale from a new perspective.”
