RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: Sly Cooper Movie

I don't know. Three dudes riding around in a van.  People might talk.

It’ll be a busy few years for raccoons in the movies.  Between The Nut JobGuardians of the Galaxy this year and the recently announced Sly Cooper movie adaptation to be released to theaters in 2016, this is most big screen raccoons I’ve seen since, well, ever.  I mean what came before? There was Furry Vengeance in 2010 (which starred Brendan Fraser, who also voiced a character in the Nut Job) and before that, Over the Hedge in 2006. So three movies in a two year span sounds pretty awesome for raccoon aficionados.  Some people voiced outrage at the change in art style presented in the movie.  I’m fine with it.  A benefit of the cel shading style used in the games is that it’s easier and cheaper to produce (due to a lower emphasis on the textures and detail in character modeling.)  For a big-budget movie it would look kind of, well, cheap. Although I’m really looking forward to the ouroboros-like, and inevitable, game based on the movie based on the game.
