The title explains it all ^_^ but I’ll break it down a bit. FUNimation & EA Games
are teaming up to produce an anime
based off the very popular “Dragon Age
” video games. I believe announcements stated the release and/or production was set for 2012 so don’t expect it this year. Here is some information we’ve gathered from around the net. Enjoy!
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Jun 7, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) –BioWare(TM), an Electronic Arts Inc. (Nasdaq:ERTS) studio, and FUNimation Entertainment, the leading distributor of Japanese animation in North America, announced today an agreement to create an anime feature film adapted from BioWare’s critically-acclaimed fantasy Action RPG franchise Dragon Age(TM). Production of the Dragon Age anime movie is slated to begin this month with a home video release in 2011. Executive producing the film are BioWare’s Executive Producer Mark Darrah and Creative Director Mike Laidlaw, as well as FUNimation’s president and CEO Gen Fukunaga and Director of Original Entertainment Chris Moujaes.
“Anime is a great medium for us to continue the robust Dragon Age story,” said Mark Darrah, Executive Producer for the Dragon Age franchise. “Partnering with FUNimation ensures that we are delivering the exceptional quality and entertainment value that our Dragon Age fans expect.”
“We are thrilled to be working with EA and BioWare on the production of the Dragon Age anime feature,” said Fukunaga. “We are going to be bringing the classic visual and storytelling techniques found in anime to create a film that will extend the narrative of the world BioWare has created.”
