Review Hub - Laika

Since the studio's founding in 2005, following the dissolution of claymation studio Will Vinton Studios in 2002, Laika has remained dedicated to the art of stop motion, proving time and again the capabilities of what can be done in the medium. Following the standard set by their debut feature Coraline, Laika films often feature dark themes and intricate effects pulled off in increasingly creative ways that only become more impressive once you remember that it's almost entirely stop-motion. Travis Knight, the studio's lead animator since the beginning, has since become a director starting with Kubo and the Two Strings, even quickly making the jump to live-action with Hasbro's Bumblebee, though he remains dedicated to the art of stop-motion and unleashing its full potential.

Below is a list of links to every review of a Laika film on this blog, presented in order of release.
