PRODUCTION RAMPS UP AT ANIMAL LOGIC STUDIOS



Animal Logic‘s Sydney and Vancouver studios are in full swing with four animated features under way: DC League of Super-Pets, The Shrinking of the Treehorns, The Magician’s Elephant and Toto, with Peter Rabbit 2 in cinemas!

It’s been a delight to see audiences back in cinemas, enjoying Peter Rabbit 2, which was released in Australia this year on 25 March to a healthy domestic box office. The hybrid live action/animated feature was number one at the UK box office when it opened on 17 May and is now releasing across the globe. The ambitious sequel, starring James Corden, Rose Byrne, Elizabeth Debicki and Margot Robbie, was produced by Animal Logic Entertainment and Olive Bridge Entertainment. Almost 500 artists and practitioners from Animal Logic worked on the film, with hundreds of live action crew and a number of VFX studios including Method Studios, bringing the tale of Peter Rabbit to life.
