Welcome to the Weekly News… well, kinda. To be honest, there was very little animation news to report on this week, down to the point where theres only one noteworthy story. That one would be Kubo and the Two String’s win at the BAFTA Awards.
Kubo and the Two Strings wins the BAFTA Award
While we all patiently wait for the Academy Awards, it’s Britain’s turn to deliver film awards. On February 12, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA for short) presented the 70th British Academy Film Awards in Royal Albert Hall of London. [...]

It’s that day of the year where a bit of love and kindness is shared around the world. On Animation Source, especially on the French side, Valentines Day is commonly celebrated with fan pairings being created in drawings and images. For the first time, the English side joined in with the French side for the first time in a Valentines project like this, and we have a lot of impressive entries to get through.
Hello fellow users of Animation Source! It is my pleasure to announce that we have opened the newest addition to our AS sites.
I present to you Over the Hedge Source, dedicated to the 2006 comedy by DreamWorks Animation! It is our third site based upon a DreamWorks franchise, following Spirit Source and How to Train Your Dragon Source.
This has been a pet project that I had been working on for some time. As you probably know, Over the Hedge is one of my favourite animated movies. Being a big fan myself, I wanted to do justice to the film by giving it it’s own special place [...]

For this one, we’ll look into how critics are reacting to The Lego Batman Movie, the first trailer of The Lego Ninjago Movie, a bunch of TV show trailers (Tangled: Before Ever After, Dragons: Race to the Edge, and the Samurai Jack revival) and finally some new characters for My Little Pony: The Movie.

As you probably have known, 2016 was a rather lacklustre year for DC movies, [...]
Ten years ago, while riding a train, I had an idea : why not making a WAP version of Balto Source? It would be very nice to see the latest fanarts whenever, wherever!
Even though this never happened, I'm glad to announce Animation Source is now mobile friendly!
It's exactly the same site, with all the same functionalities (thanks to responsive design), just with things resized and moved so it's more practical.
Of course it's not perfect yet, I'm still fixing things but it's already much easier to browse the site on a phone or tablet!
On a side note, I've also made quite a lot [...]
This week in the Weekly News, I have plenty of news to discuss about here.. I’ll talk about the Balto trilogy arriving on Netflix, the winners of the 44th Annie Awards, a new animated talking animal movie titled Arctic Justice: Thunder Squad, and The Lego Movie Sequel getting a new director.
Balto arrives on Netflix
(and we got mentioned on a big news site?)
It’s time to Reach for the Light once again, because the Balto trilogy is now available to watch on the streaming service Netflix!
Starting from February 1, US [...]
New video with more information on the "Spirit: Riding Free" series.
Apparently, the buckskin character featured is not in fact Spirit himself, but a mustang of the same name (this was done for copyright reasons).
There are many more models, characters from the series. Interestingly, (alongside the fact that the three main horse characters are a buckskin, paint and palomino - like Spirit, Rain and Esperanza) some of these other characters seem to resemble (in basic design) characters from the book series [...]
It’s time for the latest animation news! In this week’s Weekly News, we'll look into the animation nominees of the 89th Academy Awards, Illumination Entertainment and their big plans for sequels, and the new premiere date of the long-awaited Samurai Jack revival.
Animation at the 89th Academy Awards
Now that the Golden Globes are out of the way, it’s now the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ turn to honour the best of cinema with the 89th Academy Awards. As predicted, La La Land is a favourite among the Academy with 14 [...]
UPDATE : There you go, all the Animation Source sites now implement HTTPS so they're more secure!
Also, they now support HTTP/2 which makes page loading faster. It's very noticeable on the film galleries pages, for example!
The site won't be available for a short amount of time tomorrow morning (or late this night, for American folks), as I need to perform some updates.
This includes security updates, HTTPS support and HTTP/2.
I'll update this news once it's done![...]
