On the 354th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell joins me to talk about Orion and The Dark. An animated kids adventure co-written by Charlie Kaufman? It doesn’t even sound like a movie that could exist but it’s actually a lot of fun! Puzzle pieces include Puss In Boots: The Last Wish, Yes Man, Interstellar and a whole bunch of Pixar.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Orion and The Dark and the movies we discuss!
Written by Charlie Kaufman and others
Directed by Sean Charmatz
Starring Jacob Tremblay, Paul Walter Hauser, Colin Hanks, MIa Akemi Brown, Ike Barinholtz
DreamWorks Animation / Netflix
