After the rip roaring success with their Christmas adventure Arthur Christmas, Aardman Animations has once again teamed itself up with Sony Pictures Animations for The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists due for release on March 28th in both 2D and 3D.
Apologies, but in celebration for the upcoming release we’ve gotten ourselves in the buccaneering mood with a nautical themed blog with added seafaring lingo. Keep up if ya dare!
Taking a year and a half to complete this swashbuckling animation adventure boasts a star studded cast including Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Martin Freeman and David Tennant with Peter Lord at the directing helm. A simple but effective storyline teamed with unrivalled skill and attention to detail makes this film looks like an all-round treasure trove. The story follows Pirate Captain (voice of Hugh Grant) as he attempts to win the coveted “Captain of the Year” award from rivals Cutlass Liz (voice of Salma Hayek) and Black Bellamy (voice of Jeremy Piven).
We know some of you are dying to learn more about the cinematic swag for this particular project, so word to the wise there’s a “Captain’s Log” production blog on the sea dogs, that exposes some of their secrets during the long production process.
Having had a sneak peek we are very excited to see the finished product, and with the release date right around the corner we are on the edge of our thwart.
