Fans Honor 'The Rocketeer' Anniversary with Original Animated Film (Video)

Let it be known that Kryptonian Warrior is, and always has been since the 1991 Joe Johnstone directed live-action movie, a massive fan of 'The Rocketeer'.

Many people put that movie in the same rock-bottom league as The Phantom and The Spirit (which are actually another two films I really liked when I was younger) but I absolutely loved it.

I fell in love with Jennifer Connelly (again), I loved Billy Campbell in the main role of Cliff Seacord, I loved Timothy Dalton as the villain, I loved the WWII setting and of course the all out swashbuckling action...

So, you get the idea... I love The Rocketeer. So let's get to the point:

The Rocketeer recently celebrated its 20th anniversary (which technically isn't actually until August 2nd in the UK) and Paris-based 'Digital Banana Studios' created an original animated short film starring the Rocketeer that honours the work of creator Dave Stevens and filmmaker Joe Johnston, who directed the live-action film.

So here you go. Enjoy!
