GO­ING APE

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Red Alert -

“Mon­key is a guardian fig­ure. She be­comes a stand-in for Kubo’s mother and she’s stern and tough love and no-non­sense, so there’s a fam­ily dy­namic with these very strange char­ac­ters. We started work­ing with Char­l­ize three years ago; she gives an ex­tra­or­di­nary per­for­mance. She’s re­ally tough, she’s funny, she’s also re­ally vul­ner­a­ble and gives this beau­ti­ful, soul­ful per­for­mance. That be­comes the foun­da­tion for all the phys­i­cal act­ing, which our an­i­ma­tors do; there’s ba­si­cally two sides to a per­for­mance – what you see, and what you hear.”
