It's great that Ed Vis has written the screenplay, but I think that the use of live-action elements is a mistake.

Dr. Grave is so stylized, it would be better suited as a full CG production - just think! A fully-animated CG feature where the protagonist (or antagonist, in this case) isn't a cute animal or insect! Man, I'm so excited by this prospect I think I'm going to start a petition......
