For centuries, the Bureau of Otherworldly Operations (known as B.O.O.) has been the afterlife’s elite organization responsible for policing ghost activity around the world. When its two newest cadets — gung-ho recruit Watts (Melissa McCarthy) and slacker Jackson Moss (Seth Rogen) discover a plot to destroy B.O.O. by the agency’s Most Wanted Haunter (Bill Murray), they must use every trick in their arsenal to save Earth from a ghostly fate.
To bring this animated action-comedy to the screen, the artists at DreamWorks Animation had to be equally ambitious, revisiting some of animation’s fundamental assumptions as they set out to reveal the invisible world of ghosts. The Art of B.O.O. tells the story of this exciting development process, showcasing hundreds of pieces of concept and production art to illustrate how a team of talented artists designed an inspiring take on the afterlife.
