What started as a pet project in 2007, became a Kickstarter project in 2009, and eventually made it to film festivals, has finally been picked up by a distributor. According to this Slate article, the documentary “Dear Mr. Watterson” should be coming to theaters on November 15. Here’s the trailer:
I’ve been a fan of Calvin and Hobbes since about the time I was slightly older than Calvin. I’ve read and re-read the strips many times as I’ve grown up, appreciating new things each time I do. I’d love to see this documentary. I hope it gets the release it deserves.
