I’ve been a fan of the Sly Cooper series since it first came out for Playstation 2. I love Sly the Thievious Racoonus and his sidekicks, Bentley the Turtle and Murry the Hippo. They’re all hilarious, and their cases of thievery are always fun and engaging. I’m pumped that the trio are getting their own movie!
The film will be written by TMNT writer, Kevin Munroe, with the animation being handled by Rainmaker and Blockade Entertainment. We have our first look at pictures from the film, as well as a new trailer! Check it out!
Sly Cooper is a kinetic and comedic heist film that tells the story of Sly Cooper, an orphaned raccoon thief, along with his childhood friends and partners in crime, Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo. In the film, Sly learns of his birth family’s secret legacy; that he comes from a long line of talented and international thieves.
Endowed with this knowledge, Sly and his friends are catapulted into a global adventure as they race to reassemble pieces of an ancient book holding The Cooper Clan’s family secrets before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk – an evil Russian metallic owl bent on ending the Cooper family line. From romantic Parisian backdrops to the lush mountains of China, gritty film noir meets bright, colorful graphic novels in this origin story of the world’s greatest thief-turned-hero.
Sly Cooper bounces into theaters sometime in 2016!
