Gorillaz Animated Series Set To Premiere In 2018

Cartoon Brew reports: Ten episodes of the Gorillaz series will be produced for release in 2018, according to co-creator Jamie Hewlett, who spoke about the project in an interview yesterday.

“I’ll direct the first and the last one,” he told Exclaim, “but we’ll have to get someone in to direct the other episodes. I think even attempting to do it all by myself will kill me.”

Notably, the Gorillaz  crew will all be 2D. Said Hewlett:

“I think it’s a beautiful style of animation. Everybody does cg now, and it is great when you’re making backgrounds, like environments and landscapes, but not the actual characters. I’m still very much inspired by the work of Chuck Jones, and I love that animation. It’s art. I’d like to keep the characters in that style for the rest of this campaign. So the characters on the show will be 2D, but everything else is up for grabs.”
