“Art Story” is an original animated feature film about a boy and his grandfather who get stuck in a vast and imaginative world of paintings.
It’s a story about an 11-year-old, meticulous boy, WALT, and his crazy, loopy GRANDPA — two complete opposites — who get stuck in a vast, imaginative WORLD OF PAINTINGS. Inside, they cross paths with a ruthless painted character determined to make it into our world. In order to get home and stop the villain, Walt and Grandpa have to set aside their differences, work together and navigate worlds where the rules can change around every corner.
It’s structured like a hilarious, character-driven, buddy picture (“Planes, Trains & Automobiles,” “I Love You, Man” etc.), but takes place INSIDE THE WORLD OF SOME OF THE GREAT MASTER PAINTINGS OF ALL TIME … where the characters change their appearance to match the style of each painting — and meet lots of wildly entertaining characters. It also explores and was inspired by that special relationship between a grandchild and their grandparent — not something you see often in films nowadays.
