Popeye CGI, Probably Look Fine As Regular Animation
Following the mandate that all animation needs to be CGI, for some weird reason, Sony brings us Popeye. Skip ahead to the 2 minute mark so you don't have to listen to Genndy Tartakovsky, a great animator, but a very boring speaker. Put him and Pen Ward (Adventure Time creator) in a room and it looks like two pedophiles are planning something... something very boring, they're out social outcasts to listen to.
This is just an animation test, but let's hope they lose the young Popeye look and give him back a pipe. Kids won't smoke if they see a pipe as pipes aren't cool or used commonly anymore by anyone.
Well, at least it's not DreamWorks Animation or everything would look awful.
