Rebooted

In an industry obsessed with the superficial, it's not easy being an aging movie star. It's even harder when you're also a stop-motion animated skeleton monster.

Phil used to be a cutting-edge special effect. As a stop-motion animated skeleton from the 1960s, modern movie studios just aren't hiring him to star in blockbusters anymore. Refusing to succumb to his own irrelevance, Phil takes drastic measures when he learns the film for which he was created is being rebooted without him.
