This article is about the character. You may be looking for the real-life person he is based on.

Thomas Astruc is a director introduced in the third season of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. He is played by and based off Thomas Astruc, the creator of Miraculous.[3]

In "Animaestro", when Thomas' special night is ruined at his movie premiere and no one cares about him for creating his animated movie about Ladybug and Cat Noir, he is akumatized by Hawk Moth into Animaestro, an animated supervillain.

Appearance

Physical appearance

He is a rather corpulent man with green eyes, black hair and a beard.

Civilian attire

He is wearing black pants and a black shirt, over which he wears a black jacket. Around his neck he wears a badge with a blue lace.

As Animaestro

After he was akumatized, he appears as a silhouette of himself but semi-transparent with pencil-scribbles filling out his body. He also wears a Ladybug mask.

Personality

He is a very nice man and usually upbeat and excited about his movie premieres. He just wants to be recognized and appreciated for his work, but has a tendency to be ignored by everyone.

As Animaestro, he is determined to show everyone what animation is capable of.

Abilities

As a civilian

He is the director of an animated film based on Ladybug and Cat Noir.

As Animaestro

He is able to shapeshift into whatever animated 2D creature he can imagine, so he has practically unlimited abilities, if he can think of it. But he can only move as long as he is watched by at least one person. If no one looks at him, he freezes and he will be stuck in place until someone looks at him.

Sightings


Trivia

  • It can be assumed that Thomas's birth date is January 18, 1975, as his real life counterpart, who is the creator of the series, was born on this date.
  • Thomas' akumatization was decided upon when he had to discard a script for Season 2 because it "wasn't satisfying enough."
  • Thomas' character is allergic to almonds, although he is not allergic to them in real life.[4]
  • His supervillain name is a combination of both animated and maestro.
  • One of the forms that he transformed into was Ryu from the video game called Street fighter and a heroine from the Pretty Cure franchise.
