Big Buck Bunny is bouncing to Nintendo Video as part of a special partnership with the award-winning Blender Foundation, the organization behind the open source 3D content creation suite. European viewers will be able to watch the film in stereo 3D when it launches in three mini-instalments on Nintendo Video beginning 2nd May.
Big Buck Bunny is one of the Blender Foundation’s most well-known characters. The film follows the adventures of the lovable rabbit as he seeks revenge on a trio of mischievous woodland creatures who have disrupted his peaceful daily routine. The ten minute movie is inspired by the best cartoon traditions and encapsulates the exciting and suspenseful plots of its predecessors.
The movie is currently being recreated in Stereoscopic 3D by Studio Lumikuu in Finland, in cooperation with the Blender Foundation. Big Buck Bunny has received millions of online views since its release in 2008 – its popularity is due in large part to the detailed visuals and comical plot and characters. It has also been warmly received by the huge Blender 3D community which totals around 300,000.
The first of the three part Big Buck Bunny 3D instalments launches on 2nd May exclusively for Nintendo Video, so put the date in your diary now.
