Kevin Munroe

Rosario Dawson, Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne and Sylvester Stallone will lend their voices to the characters of Kevin Munroe and Jericca Cleland’s Ratchet & Clank, an animated feature film based on the popular PlayStation video game, whose release date has been set for April 29th, 2016.

The film follows the two unlikely heroes (a foolhardy “lombax” and a pint-sized robot) as they struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. When the duo stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team a group called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy.

The project will feature the involvement of voice talent from the original video game franchise, including James Arnold Tayloras Ratchet, David Kaye as Clank, Armin Shimerman as Nefarious and Jim Ward as Captain Qwark, who will all reprise their roles.

The official teaser trailer for the upcoming Sly Cooper CG-Animated film from Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment. Breaking into Theaters in 2016! Directed by Kevin Munroe, Produced by Brad Foxhoven and David Wohl

I’m shocked. This is the first I’ve heard of this. That makes two big video game franchises from Playstation coming to the big screen (the other is Ratchet & Clank). As a big fan of this series of games, I’m excited about this! Great, fun characters, with a fun spy theme that doesn’t take itself too seriously, very much incorporating a comic book and cartoon style, this could be a great film. And it seems they have the characters spot on. The designs are a bit different, and Sly in particular looks a little bit more realistic than I’d like, but the movement and personality all seem to reflect the original fun of the games.

I’m nervous to get excited about this, but man, do I want this to be great! Guys, I can’t wait!

Sly Cooper movie coming to theaters in 2016.

From Gematsu:

Sly Cooper movie is in production for release in 2016. TMNT director Kevin Munroe is writing and directing the movie, and Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker, who are also doing the 2015 Ratchet & Clank movie, are the companies behind the project.

 

Here’s a synopsis, courtesy of the movie’s Facebook page:

Sly Cooper is a kinetic and comedic heist film that tells the story of Sly Cooper, an orphaned raccoon thief, along with his childhood friends and partners in crime, Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo. In the film, Sly learns of his birth family’s secret legacy; that he comes from a long line of talented and international thieves.

Endowed with this knowledge, Sly and his friends are catapulted into a global adventure as they race to reassemble pieces of an ancient book holding The Cooper Clan’s family secrets before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk – an evil Russian metallic owl bent on ending the Cooper family line. From romantic Parisian backdrops to the lush mountains of China, gritty film noir meets bright, colorful graphic novels in this origin story of the world’s greatest thief-turned-hero.

The official website links to a trailer, which at the time of writing is set to private. We’ve attached it below—just in case they decide to tick off that private check.
