Plot Summary: Sony Pictures is developing a CG Popeye feature to be released in 3D. Avi Arad is producing.
The storyline is being kept under wraps, but Popeye’s love interest Olive Oyl, nemesis Bluto and adopted child Swee’Pea will be part of the adventure.
Arad says the new version will cover the themes of friendship, love, greed and life, and focus on human strengths and human frailties.
Created by E.C. Segar, Popeye first appeared in the already established “Thimble Theater” comic strip in 1929. Introduced as a walk-on character, Popeye eventually became the strip’s star. In 1933 The Fleischer’s produced animated Popeye cartoons through the 1940′s, the cartoons lived on in re-runs on TV to this day!
