Here’s what producer Steven Paul Leiva had to say about The Spirit animated trailer he produced with Brad Bird:

STEVEN PAUL LEIVA podcast excerpt: ?Will Eisner was, as I remember it, intrigued, but reluctant. He definitely wanted to see this animation. We arranged a meeting; Brad Bird and I flew to New York and took a train to White Plains and met Will at his house ? ver Cheever. We showed him the trailer; he was very impressed. Brad talked about the kind of story he wanted to do. Will had maybe some minor criticisms of the trailer; they were all drawing issues. But he really liked it.?
