‘Calvin and Hobbes’ Creator Breaks His Legendary Silence, Talks About an Animated Movie

Since publishing the last 'Calvin and Hobbes' comic strip on December 31, 1995, Bill Watterson, the notoriously private creator behind the series, has only granted one interview (an e-mail exchange with his hometown newspaper, the Plain Dealer, on the 15th anniversary of the strip). Many have tried to get in touch with Mr. Watterson over the years (and a documentary is scheduled to hit theaters this year on that very topic) and almost all have failed.

In a related story, Johnny Depp is in final negotiations to return as The Mad Hatter in Disney's 'Alice in Wonderland 2.'

It's a fine enough movie that made some money and showed off what were, at the time, some impressive visual FX.
