  • As Hamish Grieve, Guardians’ head of story, explains, the film is also influenced by 1980s-era family films and Steven Spielberg’s classics such as E.T. the Extra Terrestrial.
    • “We wanted the kids in the movie to feel like real kids and their world to feel like the world around us,” he offers. “Everything else about the picture is so epic, that we needed to keep in touch with the heart of what it’s all about. That’s why it’s been a different kind of movie for the studio. It would have been too easy to make it cartoony, which it’s not, but it’s not motion-capture realism either. On top of that, the movie has to work whether people are familiar with these figures or not.”[1]
