Watch This! Rocketeer Animated Fan Film

If this doesn't make you fall in love with the Rocketeer, you have no heart.

This week IDW released their second issue of Rocketeer Adventures which absolutely blew all of us on staff away. The incredible collection of creative teams definitely delivered for this second issue, so we were already super excited about the return of Dave Stevens' Rocketeer property to comics. Ironically, the release of the second issue in this new IDW mini series happens to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the release of Disney's Rocketeer film adaptation. Apparently, we're not the only Rocketeer fans, either. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the film's release is this Rocketeer animated fan film. If this doesn't make you fall in love with the character, then you have no heart! Check out the short fan film below and let us know if you (like us) want more Rocketeer. Don't forget to check out the comic review for issue #2 of Rocketeer Adventures.

So cool! The Rocketeer brings back a lot of memories -- I grew up watching the movie over and over again as a kid.

Holy Pepperoni!  Incredibly awesome.  That was a fan  animation?  Professional and I really like the style and humor involved.  Nice homage to Dave Stevens and The Rocketeer!  Thanks for sharing this.

This is sincerely awesome to look at. It got in touch with my inner child. Mission accomplished, now I want to read Rocketeer again! :D

@sEsposito7: I Didn't grow up with the Rocketeer, but I did see the movie and read some of the comics and thought it was pretty cool.

Had me at "Dedicated to Dave Stevens"

I think that would make for a great TV Show if they tried to adapt it. 
 
I loved it. It's cool but also very cool.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Rocketeer 1991 movie from Disney was directed by Joe Johnston, the same director who is now directing Captain America the First Avenger (2012) that's 21 years later.

Now that's NICE!

Agreed. Rocketeer was before my time, but I found the clip to be very enjoyable. Might check out that IDW series mentioned in the first post now...

That was great. I remember watching that movie as a kid. Freaks me out that it was released when I was 2.

full of win

I really wish the film was available on Blu-Ray.  Heck, if Das Boot can get a BR release, maybe The Rocketeer, Willow, Dragonslayer and other Blu-Ray neglected films have a shot.

Rocketeer and The Phantom movies will never get old. 

Posted by LoggerRythm

Ten minus ? until Pixar snags these people up.  
I'm sure either at the end of this year or sometime next year you'll hear about the new Pixar Rocketeer movie.

Posted by crazed_h3ro

Man another amazing Classic hero that I've bearly got to know. This Short film Was amazingly well done, and really gave me a seance that I knew this character growing up, this is the power of this animated short. It is Great to see this Character returning, and this animated short really gave The Rocketeer the respect and honor he really deserve.

I heard good things about this series, but I have way too much on my pull list as it is...I'll just wait for the trade.

Posted by Herx

awsum. No other way of describing it. Just, awsum :)

Posted by longbowhunter

Posted by ChrisAngel

That was cool.. *chuckles* Hell, I'd probably even give something like that a watch, were it on tv.
