Superman Gets New Life in Short By Disney Animator

Superman may be going through some interesting changes and new incarnations in the corporeal world, but fans of the Man of Steel now get him in a very small dose in the form of an animated web short. Written, drawn, and animated by Disney animator Robb Pratt, the film is an homage to the classic Superman serials and even takes a few visual cues from the class Fleischer cartoon.

Superman fans even get a little something extra in the form of Superman’s voice, which is lent by former Superboy actor John Newton. Pratt is best known for his animation on countless Disney films such as Tarzan, Hercules and Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Even though this film is pretty cool, the emphasis is definitely on “short.” However, it’s worth it. You can check out this short film after the jump.
