To demonstrate that a CGI Matrix film was possible, Square Pictures created a short. They took the Aki character from Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, gave her a haircut and a different outfit, and animated a fight between her and a "Sentinel" robot from the Matrix series. The finished "Final Flight" also drew on the technological and artistic assets Square had assembled together for their Final Fantasy movie. See more »
I strongly suggest that any fans of the Matrix should see this short animated feature. It is a sort of ''mini-prequel'' to Matrix Reloaded. The computer animation is quite remarkable, similar to that of Final Fantasy, or the Starship Troopers TV series. Also, I thought it was a very clever (devious?) move by the film studios to show this as a featurette with Dream Catcher - I guarantee this ploy must have at least doubled the box office takings for that film (quite a good movie in it's own right, in my opinion). Animatrix: The Final Flight of the Osiris is highly recommended viewing for Matrix devotees, enthusiasts of computer animation and sci-fi fans in general.
