An animated adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen is coming!
A recent survey by the Warner Bros. A-List Community program has revealed that the studio is bringing the graphic novel to animated form.
You can read the project's official description, which claims the animated feature will be “A faithful adaptation of the Watchmen graphic novel executed in an animation style that mirrors the source material," posted below...
This sounds very exciting, and we can't wait to see it. Although, we always felt that the 2009 live-action film from Zack Snyder was a pretty faithful take on the classic graphic novel.
Regardless, this seems like an appropriate move on the part of Warner Bros., especially given the events slowly unfolding in the pages of DC Universe: Rebirth over at DC Comics.
It’s interesting to note that Moore and Gibbons are not mentioned as being involved in the animated feature. While Gibbons participated in the production and promotion of the 2009 movie, Moore has made his disapproval of any Watchmen follow-up quite clear.
While this will be the first fully animated take on Watchmen, DC and Warner Bros. did recreate Moore and Gibbons’ book as a motion comic. The series of twelve chapters, ranging from 25-30 minutes in length, was released on DVD in 2009 to coincide with the film’s theatrical debut.
So, are you excited to be getting a fully animated adaption of Watchmen?
