Yesterday, Cosmic Book News posted a partial scan of the latest issue of SciFi Now Magazine, which features a lengthy article of the Marvel upcoming movie “Guardians of the Galaxy“, directed by James Gunn (Slither). However the article claimed that the film it’s going to be a fully animated feature.
“‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ an animated offering starring little-known cosmic characters like Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon and helmed by ‘Super’ and ‘Slither” director James Gunn, will probably explore Thanos more — defending the universe being their whole raison d’etre, after all. How an animated movie from a director known for subversive comedy and horror will neatly gel with the live-action movies is an obvious challenge, but it’s not the only one.”
The article surely excited fans who were eager for the first animation collaboration between the Houses of Mouse and Ideas, but any celebration was premature. CBR contacted Marvel to confirm SciFi Now’s report, the entertainment company responded with official that the article is incorrect: “Guardians of the Galaxy” is not an animated film.
In this digital age the movie will certainly have the CG-animation treatment. But we do expect to see a superb animated Rocket Racoon and Groot, the sentient plant, come to life with a perfect combination of Disney and Marvel tools.
