Twin Films: Antz vs A Bug’s Life (1998)
It’s “twin film” time again (the phenomenon when two movies with virtually identical storylines are released the same year).
This week we’re looking at two early pioneers of the computer animation genre:
DreamWorks’ Antz (1998) and Disney Pixar’s A Bug’s Life (1998).
Both were released the same year (in fact, within a couple of months of each other) and both films are about an ant colony facing a threat (each of a different kind) with a main heroic “ant protagonist” essentially trying to save the colony.
The two movies are very different with one having a much bigger budget and the other a more impressive cast, but which is the better film?
