Can I just point out something?
He’s facing Pitch. Yes, he looks angry. But look closer.
There are dark circles under his eyes. He’s inhaling deeper than normal. He’s standing sideways, one shoulder held back. That body language means he’s defensive but trying to edge away from a fight. The shoulder/arm held back is also the one holding out the staff, meaning that he’ll fight if he has to. His eyes narrow just the slightest bit. He’s angry, but also he’s tired and doesn’t really want a fight.
Attention to this stuff is what made me feel like I was watching a live-action movie.
