Pixar Story Veteran to Adapt Leonardo Da Vinci’s Life in Stop Motion

Fans of stop motion animation won’t have to wait long for another great film, as a Pixar Story Veteran Jim Capobianco, who has wrote the Academy Award-winning film Ratatouille, is creating a stop-motion movie about famous artist and inventor Leonardo Da Vinci. The film is called The Inventor and will be a mix of stop motion and 2-D animation.

The film’s official synopsis reads: “The story follows the insatiably curious and headstrong inventor Leonardo da Vinci (voiced by Stephen Fry) as he leaves Italy to join the French court, where he can experiment freely, inventing flying contraptions, incredible machines, and studying the human body. There, joined in his adventure by the audacious Princess Marguerite (voiced by Daisy Ridley), Leonardo will uncover the answer to the ultimate question “What is the meaning of it all?”

More information can be found at the film’s website, which can be found here.

The film brings together a creative team of people who have worked on films such as Ratatouille, Isle of Dogs, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Song of The Sea, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. If any of these films are anything to go off of, this film is going to be GREAT!

The film is also being Executive Produced by Don Hahn, who produced famous films from the Disney renaissance, such as The Lion King, and Beauty and the Best.

The film is being worked on and currently being funded on Kickstarter, and has been backed $90,000 of a $50,000 goal. The Kickstarter link is right here.

The film is projected to be released in 2023, as stated in the goals for Kickstarter.
