As evidenced with Kubo and the Two Strings and Coraline, Laika Studios has a knack for creating immersive and first rate stories. Missing Link, which features Hugh Jackman as the voice of explorer Sir Lionel Frost, aims to continue that tradition.
The plot centers on Sandy (Zach Galifianakis), better own to folks as Bigfoot. Instead of being a malevolent creature, Sandy is actually pretty intelligent and a little lonely. Frost and another adventure named Adelina Fortnight (Zoe Saldana) team up with Sandy to venture into Shangri-La, a mystical area where his distant relatives may reside.
