The first full length trailer for the upcoming Ratchet & Clank movie has been released.
Fans of the series will instantly recognize the lighthearted tone felt through the trailer with appearances by Ratchet, Clank, Captain Quark, and more characters seen throughout the series.
“A CG-animated movie based on the iconic PlayStation video game. Two unlikely heroes struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy ‘lombax’ who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way, they will learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one’s own identity.”
The Ratchet & Clank movie is set to be released in April 2016, alongside a remake of the original PlayStation 2 title exclusively for PS4. While this release of the game is being modeled after the original, Insomniac stressed they are adding things to the original content as well as reworking some of the things that are already in place, leading it to be more than just a remastered port.
