This morning I found a strange DVD in the main conference room on my floor. It was a promotional trailer for a new CGI cartoon, Storm Hawks, produced by Nerd Corps Entertainment, makers of Dragon Booster (which I haven’t seen).
I was able to dredge up this press release about the show, but that’s about it.
The DVD is dated August 24, 2005 and runs 3 minutes, 24 seconds.
The whole thing is basically one long chase/fight sequence that resolves into an even larger battle. It’s the kind of thing that makes 9-year-old boys salivate with delight, trying to emulate the faux-anime fight moves all the while bugging their parents to buy them toys.
If it gets picked up by anyone, I think it’d be a Thundercats-sized hit. Although the name Storm Hawks brings to mind that cult classic 80’s action cartoon, Silverhawks.
These shows seem different, though. Storm Hawks looks like Nausicaa on speed.
