Futurama, the wonderful animated sitcom that once disappeared, only to come back from the dead and give fans proper closure, has gotten a 3D makeover. The video, available after the jump, shows the world seen in the opening scene of the TV series, and it is joined by several HD renders and a model of the Planet Express ship.
The 3D renders and video were made by Alexey Zakharov of Moscow, who teases future additions by the use of “part 1” in the title. Though it isn’t clear when or if more videos are forthcoming, the one below is more than enough to ignite fans’ imaginations.
According to the video description, the video was made using 3dsmax, Nuke, Photoshop, and After Effects, as well as the Multiscatter plugin, Ghost Town script, and Poly FX script.
In the gallery below, you can check out a handful of images Zakharov made in addition to the video above and another included in his gallery. You can see the full album, as well as grabbing full resolution versions of the images, at the link below.
