Comic-Con exclusive: Patton Oswalt gets animated in Bill Plympton's new short

Posted on

Patton Oswalt successfully voiced a rodent in Ratatouille but is he up to the task of bringing a traffic stoplight to life? The comedian attempts to do just that in The Loneliest Stoplight, the new short film from animator and two-time Oscar nominee Bill Plympton, which details the ups and downs of a traffic light’s life at an infamous intersection.

The Loneliest Stoplight will screen for the first time at Plympton’s animation panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 10 at 4 p.m. But you can see an exclusive clip from the short, above.
