After Shane Acker‘s fantasy film 9 received an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Short Film, Acker decided that a feature film was needed and this year we will get to see 9 in action. The story about a group of rag dolls living in a post-apocalyptic world and 9 (Elijah Wood) is the leader of the rag-doll posse. This year, Acker’s short film turned feature film has help from the Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov, as co-producers, and co-writer Pamela Pettler from Corpse Bride.

nine_exclusive_photoThis photo looks like a manual to a new computer, or a robotic rag-doll. It is very descriptive, which means we can only imagine how detailed the film will be. When creating a character you must know absolutely everything about them, from their shoe size to what their favorite food is, and from the looks of it, Acker knows just about everything about his fantasy rag-dolls.
