THE OPEN­ING

Empire (Australasia) - - ON SCREEN -

As state­ments of in­tent go, this is a doozy. The movie opens with an an­i­mated pro­logue, writ­ten and di­rected by Dante’s friend and idol, Looney

Tunes leg­end Chuck Jones, in which Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck bicker over who gets to sit on the Warner Bros. shield. “I think it has a lit­tle more [Warner Bros. an­i­ma­tor] Tex Avery than Chuck Jones,” says Dante. “We love Chuck, which is why we got him to do the movie. But the an­ar­chy in the movie is a lit­tle more on the Tex Avery/bob Clam­pett side.”
