Seven-year-old Tim Templeton has always been the only child. He goes on adventures with his parents, he is loved, he is happy. He is the apple of his parent’s eye, and he likes it that way. The arrival of an unexpected baby brother upturns Tim’s easygoing life. The Boss Baby takes over his parents’ affection for him. Dressed in a suit and carrying a briefcase, Tim and the Boss Baby will have to put their differences aside and team up to keep the affection of people on cute babies instead of furry puppies, a scheme being cooked up by Puppy Co., a collective of furry antagonists.

movie facts

Boss Baby director, Tom McGrath, co-directed other Dreamworks films Madagascar and Megamind. For the style of the film, McGrath opted for a more graphic and stylized design for characters. To do this, they hired Joe Moshier whose art emanates the qualities that McGrath was aiming for. Their style of animation was inspired by 60s design. Everyone who worked on the project was shown Lady and the Tramp to help with designing the environment. For the character of the Boss Baby – an amalgam of an adult management head and a small baby – the animators watched management training seminars online to draw up the proper postures and actions. Some of the baby sounds were actually just stock baby sounds.
