Sly Cooper Feature Film Coming in 2016
The Sony PlayStation brand has enjoyed several iconic characters over the years, and ever since his PlayStation 2 debut in 2002, Sly Cooper has certainly been one of them. After an eight-year hiatus, Sly returned in 2013 with Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the fourth title in the series. Now Sly will be coming to the big screen in a 3D CG-animated feature film, planned for release in early 2016.
Sly Cooper is a collaboration between animation studio Rainmaker Entertainment and independent production company Blockade Entertainment. Those are the same two studios that are collaborating on the Ratchet & Clank film set to release in 2015. The Sly Cooper film seems to be an origin story of sorts with a plot similar to that of the first game, which means even those not familiar with the series should be able to watch the film without being lost. The teaser trailer seen below has nothing to do with the story though, but does show the hijinks and humor one would expect out of anything Sly Cooper, whether game or film.
