Memba The Rocketeer? That 90’s flick about a 1930’s stunt pilot who comes across a jet-pack, dons a Doctor Fate helmet and flies around fighting crime? Sure, it wasn’t the best movie ever conceived by Disney, but for it’s time, it was one of the better comic-book adaptations. Patriotic, all-American fun. Plus it starred John Locke as Howard Hughes. Oh, speaking of Americana, let’s not forget that Rocketeer director Joe Johnston has another helmeted, American hero hitting the silverscreen this year. Yeppers, he’s the one helming Captain America: The First Avenger!
Anyway, that’s beside the point. What we have hear is a charming short-animation, done Ala Pixar style. It was made by animator John Banana as a homage to Dave Stevens’ jetpack-wielding hero.
What can I say, it’s really cute and really cool, both in design and animation. Enjoyable too, with nice touches of character humor. Would definitely not mind if something like this were to inspire a tv series of some kind *wink to Pixar*.
