MUST WATCH: Black Dynamite Animated Series Pilot Kicks Some Honkey Ass!
Monday, January 23, 2012 1 Comment
“Black Dynamite” was easily one of the most surprisingly amazing comedies of these last few years. Though it was hardly a commercial success right off the bat, it’s been growing more and more popular as of late just by word of mouth alone. It’s one of those movies that’s so damn hilarious and kicks so much ass, it’s almost crime to not have seen it by now. For those of you that still haven’t, do yourself a favor and go pick it up. You won’t regret it.
But I’m not here to talk about the movie. “Black Dynamite – The Animated Series” is reportedly expected to air early this year. Although the trailer has been floating around the web since last fall, somehow I hadn’t heard about it until now. The full pilot episode has been difficult to find in full, but the it’s currently available on JoBlo.com. We’ve got the details here.
Click here to watch the pilot episode. It’s broken up in two parts, totaling just over 11 minutes altogether ( or what would be a 15 minute episode with commercial breaks when it airs).
If you think the art style looks familiar, it’s because all the art is handled by the team that did the “Boondocks” cartoon. All the original cast members from the movie return to voice their characters as well. Honestly, this pilot has all the makings of what will end up being an amazing series. Unfortunately, Adult Swim’s website provides little information on when we can expect the series to actually air, but we’ll keep you posted if we hear anything. In the meantime, feel free to pick up the official Black Dynamite comic if you haven’t already, “Black Dynamite: Slave Island,” available here.
