I'm also curious about the upcoming animated adaptation of The Great Gatsby. It's being produced by DNEG Animation and written by William Joyce. Also, Joyce replied to a tweet claiming he hopes the movie gets a theatrical release. That's no guarantee it will, of course, but he clearly has a vested interest in that happening, and it's not being produced directly for a streaming service. It seems like the sort of movie A24 might pick up, for example. 
 

On the subject of A24, they're also making the stop-motion/live-action hybrid movie Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, which honestly looks adorable. Of course, Marcel seems aimed at a much younger audience than most of what A24 makes, but if they're distributing animated movies now, I'm willing to bet it's only a matter of time before they put a PG-13 or R-rated one out in theaters. Offbeat movies aimed at adult audiences are kind of their thing, after all.

 

The question is whether they'll do it before a major studio (at this point, almost certainly Sony) does. Either way, I cautiously predict a successful theatrical adult animated drama film within the next decade.

The Brad Bird Skydance animated movie will likely be a PG-13 or higher. And it sounds like it's not a comedy either. That might have a shot.

  • Produced in the United States
  • Financially Successful (at least 2x production budget)
  • Rated PG-13 or R
  • Not a comedy

Honestly, I don't expect this to ever happen in my lifetime. Like in the next 50 years: Nah.

 

Inflation though. 🤔
