Genndy Tartakovsky, creator of the saga Dexter’s Laboratory, Samuri Jack and lately Hotel Transylvania, is out with an “animation test” that shows exactly how his rendering of the cartoon character Popeye is going to be.
He has always been fascinated with Popeye. We get to see sketches, storyboards and more. It's a nice introduction. He maintains that it’s not a clip or a trailer, nothing from the actual movie, but just a representation of what the makers have done, and how it all is going to turn out.
The computer-generated footage does justice to Popeye creator E.C. Segar’s visualization, and features all main characters like Popeye, Olive, Bluto, Jeep and Eugene. Sony Pictures Animation is behind this project, which was first announced in 2010.
Take a look at the animation test below:
