The movie is brilliantly animated and the animation is a combination of hand-drawings and computer-animation, done by creation of framework for some scenes in 3D and then adding details from the hand-drawn pictures.However, for the cars, boats and trains, the animators have used CGI technique so that they don’t change while in motion. The movie also inhibits use of traditional animation, particularly Cels.
