The most significant setback that _Orion and the Dark_ has is that it suffers from being a Netflix film. The humor falls flat and, while there is some creativity, the film reminds you of other cinematic endeavors it borrows from. It doesn’t help that the animation is bland. Some scenes in the film look unfinished because of a lack of natural shadows or depth in the human characters. _Orion and the Dark_ will likely be dumped onto the platform and forgotten about in a matter of weeks. **Full review:** https://bit.ly/OrionDark

FULL SPOILER-FREE REVIEW @ https://fandomwire.com/orion-and-the-dark-review-a-story-about-accepting-our-fears/ "Orion and the Dark preserves the essence and messages of the original tale about understanding and accepting our fears as something that characterizes us as human beings. Charlie Kaufman expands the story with narrative complexities that, aside from unnecessarily confusing structural details, thematically enrich the overall film. The mix of 2D and 3D animation makes the visual experience captivating and warm, accompanied by an equally lovely score and competent vocal performances. An easy recommendation for families and children around the world." Rating: B
