We just want to say: Thank you! [All yell.]
We just want a small quote here from Walt Disney, who said, "It's kind of fun to do the impossible." And along with that, I just want to extend some thanks to Phil Pullman, Chris Weitz, Susan MacLeod, our producers, our incredible crew from all over the world. And especially to our families, and to my wife Melissa and my handsome son Alex.
And to my family; and Rhythm & Hues; and Sue Rowe who's out there watching this, thank you.
Thank you to my family and my wonderful crew at Framestore CFC.
A great crew and a great family. Thank you very much indeed.
