Samurai Jack Returning

Earlier this year, Adult Swim brought us the fifth and final season of the acclaimed Emmy-winning animated series Samurai Jack. After an initial run that lasted from 2001 through 2004, the series from Genndy Tartakovsky disappeared for 13 years, only to be revived to finish the story of the titular samurai’s battle with the shapeshifting demon called Aku. Soon you’ll be able to have every episode of the series in high-definition.

Cartoon Network and Adult Swim have have announced a Samurai Jack complete series box set that will have the first four initial seasons of the series as well as the final fifth season from the revival earlier this year. Though the first four seasons have been available on DVD for awhile now, this marks the first time they’ll be available on Blu-ray.

His plans were scrapped, but not before back artist Scott Willis had put together a couple of gorgeous concept art pieces. Check out Willis’ work on the Genndy Taratakovsky Superman short below.  Read More »

Samurai Jack Returning

Back in September, we learned that Genndy Tartakovsky wouldn’t be part of Hotel Transylvania 3 if Sony Pictures Animation decided to continue the franchise he began (and they already have it set for release on September 22, 2018, along with an animated series in the works too). Now we have a good reason as to why the director isn’t sticking with the franchise.

Adult Swim has just announced that the beloved animated series Samurai Jack will be making a comeback on Toonami sometime in 2016 and Tartakovsky will be back as executive producer. Christmas has definitely come early. Read More »

One would guess that kind of box-office haul would score the animated director a little cart blanche, but, in spite of his financial success, that’s not entirely the case.
