What is there to say about the Ratchet & Clank movie that this Cartoon Brew announcement doesn’t say? So Ratchet is a lombax –that’s news to those of us who haven’t played the video game. It’s nice to see the return of the Rainmaker animation studio in Vancouver.

“[V]iewers over the age of 10 clearly aren’t the target audience for Ratchet & Clank” – maybe, but it still looks like fun to this 74-year-old. I guess we’ll wait until next April 29 to see.

Is this a reboot? All of a sudden we are back in Solana at Square One of the first Rachet and Clank game... and more.

It's called an adaptation; usually, they do tend to start at the beginning when adapting things into movies.

I think the purpose of this is to reintroduce the Rachet and Clank series to a newer, younger generation of players...

Also to (hopefully) make lots of money from theatrical audiences, including from parents who will never become players of the video games.
