3D Animated ‘Terminator’ Film On the Way to Taint Franchise’s Legacy

Out of all the things that Terminator fans might want, an animated addition to the continuing saga is probably not high up on the list. “The Sarah Conner Chronicles” being un-canceled, a second shot at Bale and company under a better director, and an Arnie-shaped toaster that covers the bread with a lava-like substance until it’s deliciously golden brown are all there, but the idea of turning it all into a cartoon is a little unnerving.

Hannover House and Red Bear Entertainment are teaming to attempt making a $70 million 3D animated movie featuring the characters from the original film. With less violence. And a PG-13 rating.

Of course it’s far, far too soon to judge the theoretical film, but the idea of this sounds absolutely atrocious. For one, animation from non-majors is usually a few years behind the curve in quality, and for two, animatedly nude Arnold sounds like they could re-name it The Stretch Armstrong Movie and no one would notice. Especially with a lack of explosions.

Step one in getting people uninterested in your action movie: tell them there’s less action. [Coming Soon]
