The Zenescope Entertainment series Grimm Fairy Tales is the cornerstone of the company’s Universe, thanks to Kickstarter and the hard work and dedication from everyone involved there is now a pilot for Grimm Fairy Tales: Animated.
Grimm Fairy Tales: Animated pilot episode made its debut at C2E2 2013 directed by Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse) and created by Zenescope Entertainment, Titmouse Animation, and Schneppzone, Inc. The pilot features the voices of Lena Headey (Game of Thrones, 300), Briana Evigan (Step Up 2, The Devil’s Carnival), Robert Forster (Olympus Has Fallen, Jackie Brown) and Chris Hardwick (Nerdist) and character designs by artists Alex Pardee, Eric Powell, Bill Sienkiewicz and other top industry talent.
I thought that it would be cool to show the two trailers that are out there for this series as Zenescope shops it around. I also thought I’d share my thoughts on them. I am interested in the story, but I think the trailer should have more content. These are just the first 3 and 4 minutes of the pilot respectively. This doesn’t really give you an idea of the overall episode. I would like to see a well-rounded trailer that shows me what the story in this episode is actually about. The art is a bit basic, but they used some interesting transitions to spice things up. The series is supposed to showcase different art styles. I hope it gets picked up and who knows we may see it done in a Bruce Timm style or maybe even a Steven E Gordon or Phil Bourassa style.
