Eloise: Eloise in Hollywood: Episodes 8 and 9
Eloise the Animated Series:With New York City’s Plaza Hotel as the backdrop, ELOISE lives a life many children would envy; she is the unofficial reigning princess of New York’s Plaza Hotel. Her vivid imagination and endless supply of energy guarantee that she is always moving and never bored. She defines New York the way MADELEINE defines Paris; and the characters occupying Eloise’s world are a true representation of the social strata in New York City.
The stories primarily takes place at the Plaza, a meeting place for all kinds of people. Despite this rather highbrow residence; from the blue bloods in the penthouse to the blue collars in the basement, Eloise has an ability to cut to the chase and connect with people on a deeply human level – always in typical Eloise fashion.
Hilary Knight’s beautiful drawings will provide the back bone for the art direction of Eloise. Rendered in 2D to emulate the captivating style of its illustrator, the animation will bring the illustrations to life; translating the line style, the pinks and blues and yellows of a world as seen through the eyes of our active six year-old girl. As if that weren’t spectacular enough m the action will skitter along with Eloise, from room to room, up down, around over and through the halls and halls of the Plaza.
Eloise is a lovable six-year-old who has many fun entertaining experiences that only a six-year-old could have. This film kept my four and two-year-old glued to the TV. I actually enjoyed watching it with them. Eloise learns in this episode that Hollywood isn’t all glamor and that making a film is a lot harder than she ever imagined and boy does she know how to imagine. Learning this and showing kindness to some one who was not very kind helped Eloise and the little girl she was nice to realize that they really appreciate what they have. Sit back and enjoy.
