i remember watching this in theatres and crying because i thought it was all live action
It's /just/ stylized enough to not look uncanny as all hell. If they weren't wearing little hats and shirts I'm sure it'd look 100x worse
no clue but everytime i meet a cool person they are also a huge fan of rango so it's a great indicator for potential friends.
Extremely good texture and lighting, and damn good character design + animation
It was an animated film made by a company that didn't really do animated films. They specialize in CGI for live action films.
