"He says that every one of the Laika Stop Motion movie features small bits of hand-drawn animation composite, but he would like to one day do a whole movie in the medium. It's seems like they don't have any definite plans but you could tell from his tone that it's something he's been considering for a while now."
I would personally love to see a studio get back into the game. Walk Disney Animation Studios, after abandoning the medium after their box-office bomb The Princess and the Frog pretty much killed any hand-drawn features in development at the time. Plus, with the Laika branding integrated with the hand-crafted medium of hand-drawn animation, well, good things are to come is all I can say. Good things are to come.
