10. The Inventor

Could The Inventor be this year's answer to Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio? It's a colourful musical comedy that uses stop-motion animation (with some hand-drawn 2D animation thrown in) to visualise Leonardo da Vinci's last years. Having upset the Pope (voiced by Matt Berry) in Italy, Leonardo (Stephen Fry) joins the French court where he is befriended by Princess Marguerite (Daisy Ridley), and is free to experiment with flying machines, mechanical lions and other contraptions. Co-directed by Pierre-Luc Granjon, this is the first feature film to be directed by Jim Capobianco, a Pixar veteran who co-wrote the Oscar-nominated Ratatouille screenplay. "I realised it's about what you leave behind for others and how you affect other people with what you do," Capobianco told Karen Idelson in Variety, "how you change other people's lives while you're here."

Released on 15 September in the US
