The film features the voice talents of Zach Galifianakis, Hugh Jackman, and Zoe Saldana along with Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry, Timothy Olyphant, Matt Lucas, David Walliams, Amrita Acharia, and Ching Valdes-Aran.

Missing Link is written and directed by Chris Butler (ParaNorman). Arianne Sutner (ParaNorman) is producing with Travis Knight. LAIKA’s fifth animated film will be released by U.S. distributor Annapurna nationwide on Friday, April 19, 2019.


Mr. Link (Zach Galifianakis) is the slightly silly, surprisingly smart and soulful beast who is the last living remnant of Man’s primitive ancestry, the Missing Link. As species go, he couldn’t be more endangered; he’s the last of his kind and he’s lonely. Proposing a daring quest to find his rumored distant relatives, he enlists the help of Sir Lionel Frost (Hugh Jackman), the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters, and Adelina Fortnight (Zoe Saldana), who possesses the only known map to the group’s secret destination, in an odyssey around the world to find the fabled valley of Shangri-La.
