I had first really heard about this movie, at The Source. The last time the Indiegamers met, the proprietor of the store had posters for this animated movie, coming out this Friday, available for the taking. I didn’t take one.
Reading more about it, it looks like this movie might be in the vein of Titan A.E. I had missed the goodness of Titan A.E. until a very good friend introduced me to it.
Maybe this movie will have the same sort of strength. There aren’t a whole lot of big scale SF movies which aren’t tied to existing franchises or properties. Maybe the animated route is a cheaper way to try and introduce *new* universes and characters.
