Shadow King: Meeting Hap and Richard

The Shadow King was a Disney/Pixar film that was being directed by Henry Selick back in 2011/12.
I was hired as the Head of Story, and was brought to San Francisco from London to work on it. I was thrilled at the opportunity, but the film was plagued right from the beginning. After Disney shut the film down, it was very nearly picked up by another studio, but alas it was not to be.

This is a blocked out version (it's missing a bunch of action panels) of an early scene in the film; Hap and Richard are orphaned brothers, who are being sent to live with their long lost uncle Darcy, a doorman at the prestigious Fargo Apartments.
