BILL AND SUE KROYER’S ARROW

Arrow

Right after the production of FERNGULLY: THE LAST RAINFOREST (1992), Bill and Sue Kroyer attempted to produce a noir-ish action-adventure animated feature called ARROW. A trailer was produced with animation by the likes of Tony Fucile, Doug Frankel, Bruce Smith and Dave Brewster. It’s been at least a decade since I’ve seen the trailer but I still remember how cool and promising the idea looked.

One of the animators on the project, Dave Brewster, recently posted on his blog a clip of his animation scenes from the trailer. The clip is without sound or color, but it’ll give a taste of what the film could have been. Brewster mentions in his blog’s comments that one of the reasons Warner Bros. passed on the film was because it featured an interracial love plot. Sad but typical.
