Here is a fun looking animated film being developed called War of the Wolds: Goliath. As you know I'm a big fan of animation, and I like they idea of placing this story in a steampunk type world. I have always thought War of the Worlds is a perfect steampunk setting. It looks like the animation is a mix of traditional and CGI animation. Some parts look really good other parts look like they two styles don't mix well, but that just may be one of those budget issues. In the end the movie looks like it could be really. Here is a little synopsis.
In 1900, the Earth was attacked by ruthless invaders from the planet Mars. The Martian’s 80 ft tall, heat-ray spewing, Tripod battle machines laid waste to the planet, but the invaders ultimately fell prey to Earth’s tiny bacteria.
Fourteen years later, Man has rebuilt his shattered world, in large part by utilizing captured Martian technology. Equipped with giant, steam-powered Tripod battle machines, the international rapid reaction force, A.R.E.S., is Mankind’s first line of defense against the return of the rapacious Martian invaders. Based in a massive fortress complex at the south end of Manhattan Island, the young warriors of A.R.E.S. train under the leadership of Secretary of War, Theodore Roosevelt, and the grim General Kushnirov.
And return the Martians do. The rematch finds the multinational squad of the A.R.E.S. battle Tripod “Goliath” on the front-lines of a vicious interplanetary offensive when the Martian invaders launch their second invasion using even more advanced alien technology. In the crucible of combat, this young team helming the mighty Goliath will be tested to the limits of their endurance and courage as they fight for Mankind’s very survival under the onslaught of an implacable enemy.
TMNT created Kevin Eastman is Executive Producer on the project, and it was directed by Joe Pearson.
