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.
A lot of fans are familiar with the fate of Imagi, the CG animation studio behind TMNT, Astro Boy and would-have-been Gatchaman that shut down in 2010. But did you know the studio also pitched a CG animated The Legend of Zelda movie to Nintendo in 2007?
Nintendo ultimately decided not to move forward with the Twilight Princess-era project, but former Imagi employee Adam Holmes, who supervised, shot and edited the pitch, has posted the footage online as part of his portfolio. It's a neat look at what might have been as it features an armored (and armed) Zelda. Sadly, though, there's not a single "Excuuuuuse me, princess" to be heard. You can see what you make of the footage after the jump.
