Meet “Mr. Link”: 8 feet tall, 630 lbs, and covered in fur, but don’t let his appearance fool you… he is funny, sweet, and adorably literal, making him the world’s most lovable legend at the heart of Missing Link, the latest stop-motion animated adventure from LAIKA. Chris Butler writes and directs with a cast led by Hugh Jackman, Zoe Saldana, Zach Galifianakis and Emma Thompson. Opening in theaters via Annapurna Pictures on April 12th, 2019 – here’s the trailer:

Tired of living a solitary life in the Pacific Northwest, Mr. Link recruits fearless explorer Sir Lionel Frost to guide him on a journey to find his long-lost relatives in the fabled valley of Shangri-La. Along with adventurer Adelina Fortnight, our fearless trio of explorers encounter more than their fair share of peril as they travel to the far reaches of the world to help their new friend. Through it all, the three learn that sometimes you can find a family in the places you least expect.
