If you’re a fan of animated films or just a teenager/young adult, you may already be familiar with Dan Fogelman’s work such as Tangled and Cars. Beside animation, Fogelman has achieved great success with his drama TV Series THIS IS US.
This is Us is set both in the present and the past, following the Pearson family. During the 70s, we meet Jack and Rebecca Pearson, a young and romantic couple who raise three children. There are the twins, Kate and Kevin, who are related by blood and then there is Randall, who was adopted into the family.
Fast forward to the present, the triplets are heading toward their 40’s and are left to their own devices to handle their personal struggles. For Kate, it is her weight. For Kevin, it is his alcohol addiction. For Randall, it is his identity. However, these characters are multi-faceted and bear great resemblance to people you may know or even yourself.
This is Us is about the Pearson family who go through tough times, whether it is individually or collectively, but the importance of family prevails.
