Paris-based Technicolor Animation Productions and Sony Interactive Entertainment will produce a CG-animated television series based on best-selling PlayStation videogame series, Sly Cooper.

Global distribution – along with licensing and merchandising rights – will be managed by PGS, the privately-owned investment family group with headquarters in Hong Kong, dedicated to brand management of intellectual property in the kids’ entertainment space.

Introduced to the market in 2002, the Sly Cooper franchise has been a worldwide success, selling millions of copies globally and spanning four different editions across multiple PlayStation platforms.

Sly Cooper follows the adventures of an irresistibly charismatic raccoon, a modern-day Robin Hood, who restores justice to his city one theft at a time. Sly is aided by his two best friends, a muscular hippo named Murray and a brainy turtle named Bentley. Hot on Sly’s trail is Inspector Carmelita Fox, a morally upright cop with an unfortunate crush on the charming bandit, as well as a band of villains, each one more strange and colorful than the last.

    I guess it’s official….the “Sly Cooper” movie is dead.

    • Ronin

      atleast now we know there turning it into a tv show,which can honestly be better.

      • Soki03

        Indeed, meaning more adventures.

      • Aaron S. Montalvo

        I hope 3DTV isn’t dead so I would be fine with people preferring TV shows over films when it comes to adaptations.

        • Ronin

          its not if u watched shows like the new ninja turtles show the 3d animation is some of the best on a tv budget.So if its anything like that too give sly cooper the speed and mobility he needs

          • Aaron S. Montalvo

            I’m talking stereoscopic 3D, but you have a point.

    • Jonathan Spiroff

      it was dead when the Ratchet movie bombed.

      • Aaron S. Montalvo

        Maybe is because critics dislike Kevin Munroe as much as they dislike Hasbro, Zack Snyder, Michael Bay, Akiva Goldsman, Blue Sky sequels, Adam Sandler, etc. And that’s saying something because of the negative reviews they give to their movies for the reason that it’s a bad movie.

    • Tom Devaddere

      love how you just jump to conclusions like that. it doesn’t state anything regarding the movie

    • Tom Devaddere

      it’s not official. nothing in this article states anything about the movie. this is just something separate.

  • D.A.V.E.

    Wow, how did these news escape me? Sly makes for a better TV series anyway. I just hope it’s well-written and animated.

    • Daniel Vasquez

      I just hope they do something about the Murray model they had in the old trailer. That was awful

  • Time Frost

    They learned from their mistakes, the Ratchet and Clank movie.
    This might be fun… maybe.

  • Morris Hülphers

    The movie is coming according to a worker at rainmaker and we’ll get news about the movie now in Q3 aka august/september/october.

  • buzzspark

    I’m still hoping for the movie. This might debut alongside the film.
