No, TIm Burton's 9 Is Not Riffing On Sackboy

Kotaku:Several readers have sent in tips pointing to the trailer for Tim Burton's latest animated feature, 9, suggesting the film's characters are homages to Media Molecule's Sackboy of LittleBigPlanet fame. Not the case!

While the characters do bear a certain similarity, what with the sackcloth construction and zippers at their necks, Tim Burton's 9 is actually based off the short film of the same title, created by Shane Acker and released in April of 2005.

The story is too old to be commented.

The trailer looks kind of kool.

9 is by one of the worst directors out there: Timur Bekmambetov. The 9 has nothing to do with LBP and since it's completely CG means it's probably been in production as long as LBP.

Seriously though, avoid his god-awful films

little planet copied this movie 9?

I would not be surprised if some of its game of the year awards are taken away due to this theft

Burton has always used characters like this. Not new or news.
