It's been a while since I watched a Popeye cartoon, thanks to Genndy Tartakovsky as he has been working on his version of the famous spinach-loving sailor man character to bring it to the big screen in the very near future. Until then, let us watch this new animated test footage he just released online for many of us to see and check if this is at least enough to make worth bringing to the big silver screen.
Tartakovsky also added that “it’s not a clip, it’s not a trailer, it’s nothing from the actual movie, the voices are all temp.” then he continued with “just something that kind of represents what we want to do,”
There is no go signal yet from Sony Pictures to make this a real feature animated film but definitely in development. Do I want this to be a movie in the future? Of course I do, Popeye the Sailor Man is one of those cartoons that I grew up with so seeing a brand new film of him at my current age is something I am looking forward to.
Two important details are missing in this clip, Popeye's pipe and tattoos! : )
