News Funimation to Co-Produce Anime of Non-Japanese Franchises
posted on 2009-11-25 13:04 EST
Update: Funimation has confirmed with ANN that its new co-production initiative will bring in anime studios to adapt non-Japanese franchises. This is different from co-producing original Japanese titles as a production committee member, as some of the other North American anime distributors have done.
Similar Japanese-animated adaptations of overseas properties have included several Rankin/Bass productions (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Hobbit, The Last Unicorn, Thundercats), Sin: The Movie, The Animatrix, Witchblade, Batman: Gotham Knight, Halo Legends, and the upcoming Dante's Inferno video project.
