Following:Spark A Spliff And Let Your Mind Drift
Watched the first 5 episodes of Samurai Jack for the first time.
Things that I have learned:
1. This show is awesome
2. Don’t draw Jack’s feet unless he is jumping in the air, it looks weird otherwise
3. He has really nice legs
Even if I help spearhead the effort to help realize Genndy Tartakovsky’s original hope for Samurai Jack—which is to properly end the show with a theatrically released big screen Samurai Jack movie in which Jack would finally be able to go back to his time and place and do the killin’ blow to Aku the Shogun of Sorrow and his terrible future world…
I don’t think live action or full CGI alone would do justice to the Samurai Jack show…
But I think a seamless blend of 2d traditional hand drawn animation along with pure CGI animation/effects—if it’s highly stylized like the show but still truly impressive and nothing short of breathtaking, no less—and even in Cinemascope (2.39:1) widescreen format—would be the very best way to represent Samurai Jack, Aku and their respective worlds—that of Samurai Jack’s past life and that of the future that is Aku.
Or would it?
