Animation #19 + Comics #4

First promo trailer for the upcoming Rahan animated series (expected in 2009) by Xilam in vidéo!!

Don't know who Rahan is? Check out my previous entry about Rahan

I'ma big fan of the Rahan comics and I grew up with the old cartoon show. The animation here is cool, but I don't think that I like the comic sidekick and Rahan's cocky attitude. In the old cartoon he was a lonesome wonderer and even the last episode when he finally found love ended with him being alone again. Anyway I can't wait to see this new updated version of one of my favourite characters!

And now just to compare with the 80s series, here is the old opening with the Rahan theme song:
