Harold Lloyd

Animated from the films of the Oscar-winning father of cinema


Harold Lloyd was a comedic genius and one of the most influential and successful filmmakers of early cinema.  He was a pioneer in the use of thrill sequences, daredevil physical feats, innovative camera angles, color in film and 3D photography.  These tremendous accomplishments, along with the universal appeal of his stories, make Harold Lloyd and his antics a natural for animation.

Aniventure has announced that it is collaborating with Suzanne Lloyd, granddaughter of Harold Lloyd and the owner of his film library, on animated adaptations.

It’s 1920 and a heist of cinematic proportions is underway as all Hollywood movies go missing! A shadowy Phantom is behind the fiendish filching, leaving best friends and wannabe filmmakers Harold, Mimi and Ramon to solve the mystery, save the day and most importantly, recover their stolen film! From Hollywood to Olvera Street, the Coliseum to Union Station, Sunset Boulevard to the Santa Monica pier, Harold Lloyd will take audiences on a thrilling, zany ride of laughs and action through Old Hollywood.

A love letter to the past, present and future of filmmaking, Harold Lloydis a wild cinematic extravaganza unlike any other.


“Today’s films and filmmakers stand on the shoulders of Harold Lloyd with his innovations and unparalleled sense of story, camera and comedy,” said Dave Rosenbaum, Cinesite’s chief creative officer, who will develop the adaptations with Eamonn Butler, Cinesite’s Global director of animation, and Suzanne Lloyd, granddaughter of Harold Lloyd and the owner of his film library.

Reaching new audiences

“By donning unassuming glasses, Harold Lloyd became the boy next door everyone could relate to and he shot to stardom to enchant and entertain generations of film fans. I appreciate the opportunity to work with Dave Rosenbaum, Eamonn Butler and all the talented people at Aniventure to bring Harold’s comedy genius to the world in a new and innovative way. We need laughter now more than ever.” Suzanne Lloyd

Aniventure is always on the lookout for its next great project.
