Every revival brings with it one inevitable question: whether revisiting opens the door to a full-scale continuation. The same could be asked of Adult Swim’s coming Samurai Jack Season 5, the first in over a decade, though creator Genndy Tartakovsky definitively confirms that the March revival will bring an end to Jack’s journey.
We’ve seen more than a few looks at Samurai Jack’s Adult Swim return for Season 5, but does that famous Genndy Tartakovsky action still hold up? Hands down, as revealed in a rip-roaring, robot-slashing and heavy metal clip from Jack’s futuristic return.
We’ve already seen one look at Samurai Jack’s Adult Swim return for Season 5, but it’s worth wondering how the style has evolved in a decade or so since its Cartoon Network days. Allow Genndy Tartakovsky and composer Tyler Bates to explain in an extended featurette for the March premiere.
It’s only been the better part of a decade for us, but Samurai Jack has spent a full fifty years waiting for his return, while Aku’s influence over the world has only grown. See for yourself in the full trailer for Season 5's March premiere, as Adult Swim makes full use of its timeslot for some bloody battles ahead.
After so many years (and an apparent lifetime’s worth of rain), Cartoon Network’s Samurai Jack is finally unsheathing his sword for a March return. The fifth season looks ready to strike in a brand-new teaser for the Adult Swim premiere, set fifty years after the prior series.
We’ve known since at least 2015 that Cartoon Network’s Samurai Jack would live anew with an Adult Swim revival, and it might be time to get that theme stuck in your head again. The network has quietly confirmed a March premiere date for the returning series
Among the many TV revivals already in progress, few have excited fans the way Adult Swim promises to resurrect Cartoon Network’s Samurai Jack in the coming months. We’ve seen a few teases, but go behind the scenes with creator Genndy Tartakovsky, voice Phil LaMarr and more with a fresh look at the 2016 revival!
The Hollywood Reporter has a new article about a bunch of animated content coming in the years ahead from Sony Pictures. The biggest news of the bunch is the director on the animated Spider-Man movie that was originally announced as a Phil Lord and Chris Miller joint last year. Lord wrote the movie’s screenplay, without Miller apparently, but both are still aboard the project as producers. Replacing them as director(s) is Bob Persichetti, an animator who was the head of story on Puss in Boots and The Little Prince. As for the rumor that this Spider-Man would focus on Miles Morales, the half-black and half Hispanic teenager who replaced Peter Parker in the series Ultimate Spider-Man, THR says “the company was mum on rumors.” The animated Spider-Man is on course for a December 21, 2018 release.
An animated Popeye movie has been in the works for years, with Genndy Tartakovsky (Hotel Transylvania) attached to direct. But when Tartakovsky dropped out, so did our hopes for the future of this animated revival of the classic character. There may be hope yet, as Ratchet and Clank writer T.J. Fixman has come aboard to draft a new screenplay for the film.
"From a young child I was already destined to make one movie and that movie was 'Popeye,'" says director Genndy Tartakovsky, who has been tasked to make Sony Animation's feature film rendition of the iconic character. While the man behind 'Hotel Transylvania' and his team are hard at work on the animation, the studio has released some test footage to give us an idea of what we can expect.
