Well it is kinda animated. Like we all thought it is still images that move with sound added and voice over, it isn't really animation. Here's the cool part though the images are from the idw prequel, not the Target exclusive. But the best part is it's narrated by not only Cullen, but Mark Ryan and FRANK WELKER! I don't know why they didn't advertise Frank because when I heard his voice I thought my money was well spent. For the record I also bought the 2 disc.
