Watch: Another Trailer for 'Dear Mr. Watterson' Calvin & Hobbes Doc
"You just see a master at his craft…" This will bring a smile to your face. A second trailer has debuted for Dear Mr. Watterson, the documentary about the legacy of Calvin & Hobbes, the comic strip created by Bill Watterson that remains one of the most beloved comics around. We featured the very first trailer for this doc back in July when it was about to hit film festivals after being successfully Kickstarter funded and finished. With the film's release coming up next month (mid-November), a second trailer has debuted and it's as charming as you're hoping. Whether or not you're a big Calvin & Hobbes fan, this is a must watch doc.
Here's the second trailer for Joel Allen Schroeder's doc Dear Mr. Watterson, found on YouTube:
Filmmaker Joel Allen Schroeder first went to Kickstarter to fund his first feature film called Dear Mr. Watterson, a documentary which features famous illustrators, actors and other fans of Calvin & Hobbes as they talk about the impact the comic strip had on their lives. Berkeley Breathed (Bloom County), Bill Amend (Foxtrot), Stephan Pastis (Pearls Before Swine) and Seth Green (Robot Chicken and Family Guy) are just some of the names featured in the film which premiered at the Cleveland International Film Festival, held in the Ohio city where Watterson is from. Gravitas Ventures will distribute the film in North America, so fans will finally get to see Dear Mr. Watterson in limited theaters & VOD starting November 15th. Are you in?

I saw this doc back in June. Absolutely stellar. In my top 10 films of the year, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it stick there. Super feelgood.
