Tomorrow, the Oscar nominations will be announced. As we run panting into the final stretch of awards season, the studios behind this year’s biggest animated contenders have released production materials to build buzz around their films.
PDFs of the screenplays and “Art Of” books have been released online — for free — for Disney’s Encanto and Raya and the Last Dragon, Disney/Pixar’s Luca, and Netflix/Sony’s The Mitchells vs. the Machines. These are the four highest-profile Hollywood animated films of the year, and all are very likely to get an Oscar nod.
The PDFs won’t be available for ever, so check out the words and artwork that went into the films while you can. We’ve hyperlinked through to the documents below — just click on the titles.
