Does ADR mean the film is almost complete?

When an actor goes into the studio to do ADR, does this mean the film is almost complete or is there still stuff to do before its fully complete.

    Not necessarily. Although this is usually part of post-production, ADR (or looping) can be done when the sound was not optimal in any scene that the director does not want to reshoot, depending upon the actor's schedule. In an animated film, the ADR (which is not really replacement at that point) is done at the beginning of production, not the end.

    Here is a nice article on ADR:

    I don't know what ADR stands for but the editing is always last. If the actor is still involved then there is at least a month left before it's completed.
