Short Flicks: "Usagi Yojimbo: The Last Request"

Great news!!!!  The incredibly awesome Japanese cult-comic Usagi Yojimbo by Stan Sakai is being developed into a Stop Motion feature!

And just to whet your appetite for more Usagi they've released a 7-minute proof-of-concept short film on YouTube that's posted below.  The film is made by Lintika Films on a shoestring budget.  The main workhorses on this project were it's director, Roel Robles, and the rest of this crew: Ray Gilberti, Fon Davis, Todd Fellows, Euisung Lee, and Lauren Vogt.  Planning a feature, Lintika is reportedly 'currently speaking with investors' to hopefully get the project of a feature film to get finally made.

If your looking for more updates on a Usagi feature keep up with them on their Facebook page and their Twitter.
