Trailer for CHILDREN OF ETHER from Crunchyroll
“Children of Ether” is an original Crunchyroll animation, directed by LeSean Thomas (“The Boondocks“, “Legend of Korra” and “Cannon Busters”), scheduled to debut first on the big screen on July 26th at Anime Movie Night, in the United States. Check out the trailer just released, and scroll down for peeks at the earlier teaser poster, and a lookback at the promotional video+featurette for this concept, since announced in New York Comic Con 2016.
STORY: "Children of Ether follows Rhonda, a woman with a dark past and a mysterious power, as she is pursued by an unknown assailant after the death of her father. Aided only by her wits and a pair of orphans, Rhonda journeys through a decaying, dystopian metropolis populated by raiders, gangs, and the supernatural. As she struggles to survive in this harsh urban tangle, she meets both friends and enemies, and searches for answers about this power, "The Ether", awakening within her." (Crunchyroll)
”Animation for Children of Ether is being produced by Yapiko Animation, which will also feature an original music soundtrack composed and performed by Mr Hudson. U.S. comic artist Ronald Wimberly contributed to the early concept designs.”
I am ALWAYS down for original creation and the building of characters and world, and of course the wondrous opportunity that leads to imagining these concepts as “toys”, and even “live action feature films”, at least in my own muddled geek-headspace (in that order, fhanks) hahaha.
