George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead has been a huge part of pop culture for over five decades. The 1968 feature that gave rise to the zombie film genre will get a fresh new animated treat with Night of the Animated Dead. The animated film is voiced by some of the iconic figures in the industry, such as Josh Duhamel, Dule Hill, Katharine Isabella, Jimmi Simpson, Nancy Travis, James, and Roday Rodriguez.
The animated adaptation is directed by Jason Axinn, who directed the 2019 animated horror film To Your Last Death. Big producers are Ralph E. Portillo, Michael J Luisi, Kevin Kasha, and Robert Feldman. The 1968 film is rising from the local cemetery thanks to the animated adaptation from Warner Bros. Home entertainment this fall on DVD, Blue-Ray, and digital. The film is rated R for the gruesome and bloody zombie violence, and whatever this is, it sounds right up fans’ alley.
John Axinn has impressed fans with his animated horror films, and this animated adaptation of a horror movie classic is expected to live to the hype. It’s no secret that the horror genre is the hardest to pull off for animation, but if anyone can do it, it’s Jason.
George Andrew Romero was an American filmmaker, editor, and writer. His Night of the Living Dead series began in 1968 and pioneered movies on the zombie apocalypse. Andrew has worked on other thrillers such as Bruiser, The Dark Half, Monkey Shines, Creep show, Knightriders, Martin, The Crazies, Dawn of the Dead, and many more.
The legend passed on on July 16th, 2017, after a hard fight with lung cancer. However, his work has inspired modern directors, writers, and producers to bring back the zombie apocalypse films to modern pop culture. Andrew penned down the script for the original film with John Russo. The Night of the Animated Dead is a fantastic idea, and fans wonder why it took so long for anyone to do it. It’s one of the most anticipated releases this fall.
The voice cast is great with lots of talent in it, and if you haven’t watched To Your Last Death, you should before this one comes out. Due to lack of copyright indications on the original work on the Night of the Living Dead, Andrew’s masterpiece entered the public domain ahead of its time, implying that anyone can adapt and interpret it in any way they like. Due to this fact, there have been many variations in the original story over the years. Perhaps this will be one of the best versions of the original film, and we can’t wait to watch it on the big screens.
