Sony Pictures Animation has revealed a first look at “Samurai Jack” creator Genndy Tartakovsky’s planned CG animated film adaptation of the classic newspaper strip and cartoon character “Popeye”. The film is currently targeting a 2016 release.
The footage itself is described as an ‘animation test’ by the studio. In the introduction, Tartakovsky says: “It’s not a clip, it’s not a trailer, it’s nothing from the actual movie. It’s just something that kind of represents what we want to do. I couldn’t be more excited by how it turned out.”
The clip is currently available on Cartoon Brew.
