“Excitable Edgar” Lights Up Christmas for John Lewis

London’s Untold Studios just leaped onto the world-wide VFX radar nailing the chance to work with Blink director Dougal Wilson and create a loveable dragon named Edgar for this year’s John Lewis Christmas epic.

The pressure was certainly on for Untold as they had to follow MPC’s stellar collaborations with Wilson and agency adam&eveDDB on previous John Lewis holiday show stoppers like “Buster The Boxer” (2016) and “Monty’s Christmas” (2014).
