If you were at all worried about the state of Genndy Tartakovsky’s (the man who brought us Hotel Transylvania, Dexter’s Laboratory, and Samurai Jack) take on Popeye, there’s no need to worry anymore. Although this first footage is a mere animation test (and Tartakovsky’s said it’s not completely reflective of the final product), it looks absolutely stunning. The guy really gets Popeye’s loose physicality.
I really hope we get a trailer soon, but this’ll tie me over nicely. Sony’s Popeye releases sometime in 2015. If it keeps looking like this, the wait is going to be excruciating.[via Sony Animation]
