As anticipation for the next installments in The Matrix series grows, a date has been set for the animation collection The Animatrix. The collection will be available in June.
So, what is The Animatrix? It is a series of nine feature-film-quality short animated films, each between six and sixteen minutes long. Four of the Animatrix stories are penned by the Wachowski Brothers, with the remaining five written by the anime directors themselves. All of The Animatrix is deeply rooted in the world of the Matrix films. Viewers of The Animatrix will learn the origins of characters familiar from the Matrix films, learn of the genesis of the Matrix itself, as well as meet new characters in original stories inter-woven with the fabric of The Matrix feature films.
The new disc will be available on June 3rd, an odd release date for a prelude since the next film is set to arrive in May, but I’m no marketing expert.
