"The Pirates!" features Charles Darwin as a main character. How are you preparing for the inevitable Fox News piece about a "supposed children’s movie featuring the controversial Darwin as a hero"?

[Laughs] Okay, the truth is, I like Darwin. I mean, our Darwin, he’s a respectable figure, but we give him such a hard time. All the fundamentalists were delighted because we make him look like a complete ass.

But that requires watching the movie, and they’re not going to do that.
