In another universe, a CG animated movie written by Paul Dini and based on the classic anime Science Ninja Team Gatchaman was made by the same studio that made 2007's TMNT. In this universe, though, the studio, Imagi, had a financial meltdown and the project was scrapped.

There are still plenty of artifacts from that movie's production, though, including these four new videos featuring never-used animatics from scenes and some polished demo animation that show a glimpse of what that alternate-universe movie looks like. Check out all four after the jump.

 

 

 

 

Gatchaman fans at least have the Japanese live-action film, which came out in Japan in August, and the new anime series Gatchaman Crowds, which just ended a run in Japan in late September to console them.
