Twice Upon a Time
Twice Upon a Time is an animated cartoon feature from the Lucasfilm factory. The story involves a battle royal amongst the employees of Murkworks over possession of a "cosmic clock." Whoever controls Time will control the universe, so you can well imagine that some of the characters consider this struggle of life-and-death importance. Were this a Disney film, there might have been more story and less "mood". But the Disney people might not have used the singular animation technique showcased in this film: Lumage, a process involving what looks like (but aren't) paper cutouts. While Twice Upon a Time did not test well in preview and was never given a general release, the film has done reasonably well on videocassette. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    A very different type of animated film, visually speaking, but a fun film. A story of good vs evil with silly and clever moments. If you are a fan of this film, I recommend it. Great DVD transfer. This DVD has a few bonus features including 3 audio tracks. First audio track is the PG version. The second audio track is the Director's cut (version presented on HBO when it first aired on cable). Third audio track is a commentary by some of the behind the scenes crew including John Korty (commentary is on Director's cut). Trailer (time duration = 2:40). A few outtakes were incorporated into the film as well. Total film time = 1:14:09. Aspect ratio = 1:85:1. Film is not for everybody, of course, as with anything. In my opinion, I love this film as it is a childhood favorite of mine and still is. Enjoy!! ✌️
