Bungo Stray Dogs! The trailer is out, as well as a spoiler-filled plot synopsis.

…Oh, and we have good casting, give or take some annoying stunt casting, for Jon Favreau and Disney’s continued work to erase its 2D animation legacy in misguided assumptions that motion capture is somehow not animation, so-called realism is better than style, and live-action is somehow superior and completely divorced from animation. I already didn’t like the Beauty and the Beast remake as a concept, and I don’t like this remake either.
