IRON GIANT 2.0
Right on schedule with the infamous robot’s cameo in “Ready Player One,” the ’90s animated movie The Iron Giant will be added to the Netflix Streaming line up this week. Just a quick refresher, The Iron Giant takes place in October 1957 in the American state of Maine in the city of Rockwell during the height of the Cold War. This article is written to tell you about a new exciting independent addition to the film and story.
The newest addition is called Iron Giant 2.0 and was created by Christian Day and Kurt Baringer. The short film takes place 40 Years after the events of Rockwell, Kent Mansley talks about his life spent tracking down the government. You can take a look at the short film below.
We were contacted by the creator Christian Day to let us know about the project and we are glad they did. We need a follow up to the first and we think that this Iron Giant 2.0 is just the thing we needed at the moment. With the nostalgia Ready Player One gives us and the fact that the Character is in the movie, brings us hope that hype for a sequel will come. We recommend that the Geek Impulse Fam will give it a watch and let us know in the comments below what you all though about it.
