The Man In The MirrorMask

Well done Garbage World, which is currently specialising in MirrorMask news. Just to remind you, here's the plot of the film:

Helena, a 15 year old girl in a family of circus entertainers, who often wishes she could run off and join real life. After a fight with her parents about her future plans, her mother falls quite ill and Helena is convinced that it is all her fault. On the eve of her mother's major surgery, she dreams that she is in a strange world with two opposing queens, bizarre creatures, and masked inhabitants. All is not well in this new world - the white queen has fallen ill and can only be restored by the MirrorMask, and it's up to Helena to find it. But as her adventures continue, she begins to wonder whether she's in a dream, or something far more sinister.

So, what has GW found out? Well, from careful study of Neil Gaiman's blog (an author I keep meaning to look into, incidentally - but I will repeat my fulsome praise for Don't Panic), we now know that:

"Robert Llewellyn plays a gryphon. It's a larger role than a cameo, although he's not one of the principals. He fails to devour our heroine "bones and all". He's very funny. Stephen Fry plays a librarian, made of books."

Oh, and there's also this. ("That's him on the left, being magnificently baffled.") Fan-blooming-tastic.

I just hope that when the website for the film launches properly, it doesn't make you build a fully realistic CGI model of yourself before having to set up a virtual reality system and using it as an avatar which you have to use to browse the site rather than doing it directly also you have to wear a mask and dream it all and you have to have surgery whilst you're doing it and you have to sit next to a big mirror.
