Rocketeer CGI Animated Short!

An incredibly huge thanks to Retroist follower, Dax, for sending me this link from the Nerdist site. It appears that Digital Banana Studios, a French animation studio, has gone and made a CGI animated short featuring Dave Stevens’s iconic Rocketeer comic character, in a very respectful and humorous way, as well as celebrating the Disney film’s 20th Anniversary. Chris Hardwick of the Nerdist believes this is also an DIY TV pitch to Disney…looking at how they’ve handled this short…please let them have a shot! Please!
