As a result, The Iron Giant seems to run down a check-list of tropes not only as far as family films go but also those involving the era's own sci-fi stories, often making explicit the themes that were implied by the films it references.
The Iron Giant is such an amazing, beautifully animated film that tugs at the heart strings for me.
The film is based on the novel The Iron Man by Ted Hughes, and was made into a concept album in the 80's by Pete Townshend, who's the exec producer on this animated film as well.
