Animated Halo Anthology

Postby BurningDoom » Thu Nov 05, 2009 10:58 pm

Warner Home Video has announced that it will be releasing an anthology of short traditional and CG anime films for Halo Legends.

Similar to the Animatrix or Batman: Gotham Knight, this eight-episode anthology will have work from Ghost in the Shell’s Production I.G., Cowboy Bebop’s Bones, and Dragonball Z’s Toei Animation.

The anthology will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 9, 2010.


Sounds cool enough, I'm sure I'll watch it. But I've got to ask, why an anthology? Why couldn't they give us a full feature-length feature? That would have been awesome. And as epic as the games stories are, Halo deserves a feature-length film.

An anthology made sense with Gotham Knights, because we had already seen a few feature-length animated Batman movies.

The Halo movie has been in development hell for a while now, from what I heard Peter Jackson is no longer on the project, he ditched for District 9. As for Halo Legends, I'm not sure about them simply because I'm not a fan of the anime style.

While trying to find a source I could link you to, I found that there are rumors that Steven Spielberg is trying to get on board.

Peter Jackson is a helluva filmaker. But I think he's just getting too full of himself. First the debacle with The Hobbit, then he got pissy over some royalty rights on King Kong, then this. Since when did a director get bigger than the rest of Hollywood?
