Fans of the game, Ratchet & Clank, have been asking Insomniac Games when it would be made into a movie, and now it’s coming to the big screen! The team at Insomniac Games collaborated extensively on original script development with former Ratchet & Clank scribe TJ Fixman, and character design and creation with Insomniac veteran artist Dave Guertin (responsible for Ratchet and Clank’s original design) and Greg Baldwin (responsible for character, weapon, and vehicle designs too numerous to mention). Insomniac animation guru David Hancock assisted with animation consulting, and North Carolina studio director and Ratchet & Clank “OG” Chad Dezern participated in lighting reviews. The fearless Chris Carter and the inimitable Brian DiLucente helped with asset sharing across production studios. There is a lot of hard work that’s gone into the production of Ratchet & Clank The Movie and it’s gonna be a good movie to take the kids to go and see!!
