Genndy Tartakovsky’s Popeye: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Saturday, September 20, 2014

Genndy Tartakovsky takes on Popeye the Sailor Man and we have our first glimpse at the upcoming CG animated film thanks to the release of the test footage by Sony Pictures Animation. 

Following the box office success of Hotel Transylvania, we here at The Daily Zombies are especially delighted to know that Genndy Tartakovsky will be taking on not one but two animated projects concurrently with Sony Pictures Animation announcing Tartakovsky's return in helm for Hotel Transylvania 2 in 2015 and more important, a CG take on Elzie Crisler Segar's iconic comic strip and cartoon character, Popeye the Sailor Man. While a modern riff on Popeye does not bode well usually, it's no secret that we have faith in Tartakovsy to turn things around since the Russian-born animator has practically won our confidence with his Cartoon Network classic, Samurai Jack, and Sym-Bionic Titan. 

With Popeye set to be released in 2015 as well in 3D, Sony Pictures Animation has unveiled a test footage for the film with Tartakovsky himself making the introduction. Many have decried the pipe-less and tattoo-less Popeye but as Tartakovsky put it, this is just a test footage that will not be in the actual animated film. So let's keep our fingers crossed on how Popeye can keep his perceived unorthodox habits in the animated film that will no doubt be targeting the kids.

Check out the clip complete with the physical comedy and slapsticks one would expect from Popeye.

Popeye is currently scheduled to be released in 3D in 2015.
