Animation Monday: Film Theory: Solving Anime’s Hardest Mystery, Dr Stone’s Petrification Beam


There is a new anime TV show called Dr. Stone that is getting a lot of views.  And this show is based on a subject in cartoons I love, petrification!  What is Dr. Stone?   When a green light mysteriously turns all of humanity to stone, only a few people have been able to break free.  That’s right, every human is petrified into stone.  And thousands of years later, only a handful have broken free.

Matt Pat from The Film Theorists made a new video talking about Dr. Stone and the science behind the show.  Can any light actually petrify anyone?  And can petrification really happen at all?  This was a fun video to watch, see it below!
