Hollywood certainly has a love affair with nostalgia. In a world where brand recognition is everything, they are constantly in search of the next big franchise to resurrect. Occasionally, however, there are some projects that are resurrected not just to cash in on previously-said nostalgia, but to conclude a story that was formerly left open-ended. Enter Samurai Jack, a series that those in my generation view fondly of from the early 2000s.
In an age where animation was perceived as childish and silly, Samurai Jack stood as a testament of what the medium could if they don’t talk down to kids. It ran for four 13-seasons, and despite it’s critical acclaim, never truly finished. Back in December of 2015, it was announced that Adult Swim would be resurrecting the series for one final season.
Today, they released the first official trailer for the season, and if you were a fan of the original series, »

I expect every now and then as I did last year with my first ScreenAnarchy article that I'll use this platform as I do my own at Film Combat Syndicate to discuss some of today's considerable up-and-coming talents. Specifically speaking for today, it also comes with the rather rewarding release of a fantastic new fan film inspired by Nickelodeon's hit animated Avatar follow-up series, The Legend Of Korra. Thus, we get The Legend Of Korra: A New Beginning following production comprising all of November last year and the unveiling of its subsequent poster art you now see with up-and-comers, Art School Dropouts's own in-house martial arts talents, Angela Jordan and Stephanie Pham front and center in the respective roles of Korra and Asami.
