Guillermo del Toro Turning Pixar Animator's Creepy Short "Alma" Into Feature Film


The guys over Moviephone (Cinematical) just posted this about a very cool, creepy short which is being turned into a feature film...

DreamWorks is preparing to get creepy, tossing aside ogres, fairy tales, aliens and dragons for a story about an ominous toy store and a little girl who gets sucked in by a rather familiar-looking doll. The premise alone makes this project interesting, but to up the ante it's coming to us from producer Guillermo del Toro and Pixar animator Rodrigo Blaas.

'Alma' is a short film about a little girl who discovers a strange toy store while walking through a snow-covered alley one day. Full of dolls, she's intrigued because the one in the window looks exactly like her -- same face, hair and clothing. The more intrigued she gets, the further the doll moves away from her -- not to keep her from breaking something, but because the shop wants to add her to its permanent collection.
