If you’re a fan of Patrick you’ll dig the interview.Patrick: Well, I’m hoping it does well enough so there’s a sequel and we go back to Andalasia and we can call it Disenchanted, she gives birth to a child and doesn’t like it, then she’s like, ‘I want to go back to the cartoon world.’ Patrick: Well that was the hard part is everybody’s having a great time over acting and being brilliant, and I had to kind of just drive the narrative, which was challenging.I think we have too much violence in the world, and it’s really important to do movies that are light, you have to really kind of think of it as like during the war or during the depression era movies we need to have those screwball comedies come back that are smart, that are fun, that are good spirited, that weren’t so negative so that people can – because I want to go and escape for two hours or an hour and a half, I don’t want to come home and have to deal with the news and all of that stuff, it’s just so bleak, that for me personally I want to just kind of check for an hour and a half.
I’m going to tell you something that might surprise you… And based on the crowd reaction from when I saw it, I’m positive that Disney has a big hit on their hands.
For those that don’t know, the film is a mixture of live action and classic 2D animation… It’s a classic Disney film in every sense of the word, and one that families will love.
That was the most difficult part, but I just wanted to be a part of it because it’s hard to find stories that are original and different, but yet there was something about this that was timeless and familiar as well, so it felt like it was entertaining on a lot of levels.
As a parent, it’s a nice family film, but also it’s a good date movie as well and something you can go and find entertaining, and I think the symbolism in it, and the archetypes are really fascinating. The big thing was like that was the first two scenes were the ones with the rats and the birds, and it was like, ‘Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into? Patrick: A little bit of both I think, depends on the mood.
Patrick: Well, it gives me a little bit of a break I think certainly to just kind of rest and be with my family, and the holiday season is coming up, so it doesn’t affect me as dramatically as other people I think.
