Sony’s planned CG animated Popeye film has been announced a long time ago, but details about the project were few and far in between and most people were content to write it off as simply entering development limbo. However, things seem to be moving forward as Sony Pictures Animation has just posted a first-look clip at the project.
Dubbed as a mere “animation test,” the clip features an introduction from animation legend Genndy Tartakovsky, who is also directing another of Sony Pictures Animation’s upcoming features, Hotel Transylvania 2. Tartakovsky promised to make the film “as artful and unrealistic as possible,” and it’s no surprising that he seems to have pulled it off given his past works. You can check out the clip below:
