First Look at Sly Cooper Movie
Sony and Rainmaker Entertainment have released the first trailer for the upcoming Sly Cooper file. watch it to see Sly,Murray, and Bentley in the middle of an exciting score, with a police chase.
The film is being directed by Kevin Munroe, the guy behind 2007’s TMNY, with the animation being handled by Rainmaker and Blockade Entertainment, who are also currently working on a Ratchet & Clank project. The movie’s Facebook page has a few words to say about the movie plot:
Sly Cooper is a kinetic and comedic heist film that tells the story of Sly Cooper, an orphaned raccoon thief, along with his childhood friends and partners in crime, Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo. In the film, Sly learns of his birth family’s secret legacy; that he comes from a long line of talented and international thieves.
Endowed with this knowledge, Sly and his friends are catapulted into a global adventure as they race to reassemble pieces of an ancient book holding The Cooper Clan’s family secrets before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk – an evil Russian metallic owl bent on ending the Cooper family line. From romantic Parisian backdrops to the lush mountains of China, gritty film noir meets bright, colorful graphic novels in this origin story of the world’s greatest thief-turned-hero.

The Sly Cooper movie is scheduled for a 2016 release.
What I think
I’m curious to see what they can do with this movie, as we’ve all seen before, the same animators are also making Ratchet & Clank movie, and now already starting another project before finishing the first, I really hope that both movies end up being good and memorable, as they were when they were games.
