Sly Cooper Animated Movie Confirmed for 2016, Check out the Teaser Trailer

Trying to make a live action movie based on a video game seems to be a nearly impossible task these days, but when it comes to animated films based on PlayStation games, we already have Heavenly Sword and Ratchet & Clank announced, with Sly Cooper now joining those ranks.

Check out the teaser trailer below and try to spot some of the differences between the movie and the game:

Here’s the description for the Sly Cooper movie:

Based on one of PlayStation’s most beloved franchises, Sly Cooper is a kinetic and comedic heist film that tells the story of Sly Cooper, an orphaned raccoon thief, and the adventures of his childhood friends and partners in crime, Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo. In the film, Sly learns that he comes from a long line of talented, international thieves, and is catapulted into a global adventure. Sly races 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 metallic owl bent on ending the Cooper family line.

The Sly Cooper movie will be released in 2016, with a 3D version also planned (a 3D version of the teaser trailer is expected soon as well).
