We had a nice time playing with those two worlds in animation. With Bowler Hat Guy, he fits into both nicely, and we really had a lot of deformers within the rig to bend him around until he gets nice S shapes, say, in his arm or his spine to really distort him, not that you're reading that distortion, but in fast movements, it's a very snake-like quality. That is the hardest stuff to do in animation -- it isn't just moving the character from point A to point B.
The character has to emote and you have to get that to an audience. And when you haven't had the chance to learn the rig and understand that character, that's a tall order to get. But Anderson did not dismay when reviewing the set of notes. It simplified the process and made it more emotional.

What was really great was that the crew reacted to it positively: Watching how the crew handled that adversity was my proudest moment.
Things were pulled out and put back in. Emotional beats such as the rooftop or the interplay between Mildred and Lewis at the orphanage wasn't previously there. Bowler Hat Guy's thread through the story was improved. Were able to play up Lewis' emotional journey and confidence. And build off of key moments. And it'll be the largest 3-D rollout ever, on more than screens domestically. However, this time, 3-D preparation began early in production.
Stereoscopic supervisor Phil McNally, who will now spearhead rival DreamWorks Animation's nascent 3-D program, oversaw the restrained approach at greater depth of field. What's the emotional arc? And how can we increase or decrease the amount of depth?

They mass produce his inventions. His motto, "keep moving forward". What's going on, why aren't you seizing the boy?!? I'm just not sure how well this plan was thought through. And so it begins.
Surely that is not the best you can do. Your skills are strong, but not strong enough. Your words do not threaten me, brother. Now the real battle begins. Your meatballs are useless against me.

That's for not locking the garage door! Lewis agrees to do so only if Wilbur can prove he is telling the truth, which Wilbur does by taking them to the year in a second time machine.

Lewis does not stay there for long, however, and ends up meeting the rest of the Robinson family except for Cornelius, Wilbur's father, who is away on a business trip.

Wilbur admits to lying to Lewis about taking him back to see his mom, causing Lewis to run off in disgust. Lewis then discovers that Cornelius Robinson is, in fact, a future version of himself, and Wilbur is his future son.
