Trailer for Animated Series Judge Dredd: Superfiend

While we’re all still waiting for a sequel to 2012’s Dredd this could tide fans over. It’s sort of aimed at kids and yet it still has enough bizarre violence to appeal to all.

It’s a bootleg animkated series and isn’t anything do do with the official comics.

When discussing the project with Collider producer Adi Shankar talks about why he wanted to make it.

1. The “Bootleg Universe” is about viewing things through a fresh lens. I wanted to do something that played up the satirical tone of the Judge Dredd comics, an anti-establishment British comic about post apocalyptic America.

Furthermore, I’m not going to bootleg my own thing and do it in live action … I’ll save that for Dirty Laundry 2.

2. I personally love cartoons, so I wanted to mimic the look of 90’s MTV, “Ren & Stimpy,” Liquid Television, with a dash of “ReBoot” and juxtapose that with the trademark violence found in everything I have done. When I was younger all of your favorite comic book sci-fi anti-hero characters had an animated series, X-Men: The Animated Series, Ultraforce, WildC.A.T.s, Savage Dragon, and even Youngblood got close … so in that tradition this is Judge Dredd’s foray into ultraviolent kids animation!”

JUDGE DREDD: SUPERFRIEND premieres on October 27th 2014.
