    That is a cool (see what I did there) feat for an animated feature to accomplish. I really hope I see this movie while it’s still in theaters. I’ve heard nothing but good things (which includes some of the music, which sounds great.) I don’t think I’ve seen a cgi musical before; seems like a good place to start.
