Bugs Bunny is back, thanks to Warner Bros.' newest project, which will revive The Looney Tunes, and ahead of the world premiere of the first new Looney Tunes short, the titans of animation have released a photo to tease all the fun to come:
According to Variety, the first new Looney Tunes short will make its world premiere at the Annecy Intl. Animation Festival on Monday with a new Bugs Bunny short called "Playmobil: The Movie." This short is one of 20 the studio says are already finished and ready to share with everybody wondering "What up, doc?" when it comes to the reboot.
By the art alone, apart from its vivid, more modern color scheme, you can tell from the photo that the artists are being as faithful as fans could hope to original drawings and the look and feel of Looney Tunes, since the Merry Melodies days.
We're happy they're keeping the faces of these treasured characters so familiar, and it makes it that much more exciting to think Warner Bros. plans to make more than 200 more shorts, adding to the legacy of Looney Tunes and sending a message to the next generation: That's not all, folks!
