.. it's been a while since I've made a new thread on here... and I'm sure everyone's seen the posting on Facebook, but for posterity: http://www.rainmaker.com/?/site/news

It would appear that they are "re-imagining" ReBoot... I wonder what this could mean..

The ReBoot reboot is actually generating some buzz in online news. Hopefully a good sign we will actually see some results this time!  hyperactive

*replies to own thread* anybody alive out there?

Did anyone see the new trailer on YouTube? Is anyone dying inside as much as I am?

I didn't see it, but I'll look when I get a chance.

The trailer made me so very very sad. It was like a punch to the gut.

I looked, but I could only find a 15-second thing from 2009.  What did you find?

Yeah the CGI looks worse than it did in 1994. The head of the company Michael Hefferon was determined to use the Unreal Engine  to produce the show instead of the superior in house animation software for bizarre reasons. Like apparently it would make animating small masses of enemies faster since they just did what the game engine AI told them to do, even though ReBoot had done this 20+ years ago with the in house animation software. If the leaks are to be believed this was Michael Hefferon's pet project for his young son and he used the ReBoot name to build interest to fund it. One of the main characters is named after his son for example.  Undecided

Anyway after seeing the trailer it did reboot my interest in ReBoot again and I started searching the net for ReBoot goodness.

Found this great video from Magfest 2016 of Gavin Blair talking about the history of ReBoot and Mainframe entertainment. He also talked about Beast Wars and Shadow Raiders. Learned a lot of cool stuff from the vid. Like why Shadow Raiders was cancelled.  Anyway the vid cheered me up after the disapointing trailer. Every ReBoot fan should check it out, lot of history in it.

So someone's idea of a new Reboot is Power Rangers crossed with Tron, except with Megabyte thrown in and the use of the word "guardian" to justify using the title.  Ooo-kay.

I think they used Unreal Engine so they can tie it into some VR thing - at least that's from something I read online. The response to the trailer has been overwhelmingly negative, so I"m sure this is going to crash and burn upon release - which will likely dash any hopes of the continuation of the original storyline.

Since when were there any hopes of that to begin with, after all this time?
