By the looks of the image above, yes he is.
By the looks of things, 'A Monster in Paris' may turn out to be an interesting sort of film. I don't know about you, but the first thing that popped into my head was Gru from Despicable Me. Must be the broad shoulders.
As /film points out, there is still little if any info on the plot so for now, we're left guessing and it is still early stages as the film isn't scheduled to be released until late this year (2011) in France with a wider release after that. Hopefully we'll have the full details soon. I'm curious to see how the differences between American and European CGI films have changed over the years.
