    FYI, Chomet' latest project (swing popa swing) has been cancelled. Source is the newsletter of the french animation producers association ( animation-francedotfr/newsletter/53/ ) . And the movie has disappeared from Les Armateurs' line up.

    Well that's dissapointing. What was the movie going to be about?

    Nice. Even though I think these couch gags are getting to be too long, I wouldn't mind if they try to get Hayao Miyazaki to do one. Of course, that probably will never happened.
