Trivia & Production Notes
- The project, a new approach to a previously developed concept (see shutdown movie, Me and My Shadow), marks the feature animation directorial debut for Edgar Wright.
- "Edgar will spearhead a new approach to this fascinating concept and we're ecstatic to have him onboard as director along with David as co-writer," said DreamWorks Animation's Co-Presidents of Feature Animation Bonnie Arnold and Mireille Soria in a joint statement. "We've always been intrigued by a film concept involving shadows, and now with Edgar's signature comedic style and abilities as a natural storyteller, audiences will be treated to a truly captivating and energetic tale."
- "My first endeavors in film-making as a teenager were in animation, so it was hugely intriguing to get a call from DreamWorks Animation about potentially directing," said writer/director Edgar Wright. "When the Shadows concept was suggested to me, I could see the poster, the title sequence and pretty much the whole movie. It's a blast writing this and to have one of my oldest friends in comedy, David Walliams, along for the adventure is a thrill."
