Ratchet & Clank movie coming to theaters in 2015, teaser trailer released
Game developer Insomniac willplay "a hands-on role with the film’s production, screenplay, character development, and animation consulting." Additionally, T.J. Fixman — writer of all recentRatchet & Clank games –is handling the script for the film as well. Below is a brief plot outline.
Ratchet and Clank tells the story of two unlikely heroes as they struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind – a foolhardy “lombax” who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way they’ll learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one’s own identity.
