New Popeye film confirmed – watch test footage

Genndy Tartakovsky, who directed the 2012 animated film Hotel Transylvania, has been named to direct an upcoming Popeye movie. A longtime Popeye fan, he says in the clip that his first animation teacher was Gordon Sheehan, who worked on Popeye as an animator in the 1940s. The new Popeye film will be released in 2016 from Sony Pictures Animation. Tartakovsky said through Sony that the video is not part of the film or even a trailer for the film, but just test footage. He clarified: “It’s not a clip, it’s not a trailer, it’s nothing from the actual movie, the voices are all temp – it’s just something that kind of represents what we want to do.”
