So, what is Ratchet Galaxy ?
The director of the Ratchet and Clank Movie, Kevin Munroe, was interviewed on USA Today concerning the story of the Ratchet and Clank Movie, and how the new set of characters play into the film. He says it is truly a nostalgic journey for all.
Ratchet is a Lombax who thinks he's the last of his kind. He feels like he's destined for more than fixing ships, and wants to be a Ranger like his hero, Captain Qwark. Qwark thinks that Ratchet has everything but the right stuff to be a ranger, and shuns him for the beginning of the film.
When Ratchet meets Clank, everything changes. Clank is a warbot who malfunctioned, and feels like a defect. However, he is quite smart and has a good heart when it comes to doing the right thing.
As for the three new Rangers, Cora, Brax, and Elaris, they begin to take a fondness for Ratchet and Clank. Brax acts as the tough guy, who sees Ratchet as a little brother. Elaris is the tech guru who provides the Rangers with weapons, gadgets, and battle plans.
Cora is the female warrior-type who has a huge beef with Ratchet for joining the ranks. Bella Thorne said that her voice tends to be low when voicing characters, but the directors wanted it even lower! She replied, "Ok, we DO want to make sure this is girl though, guys!"
James Arnold Taylor says his most beloved part of the movie is that David Kaye, Jim Ward, and Armin Shimmerman get to share the experience with him. Most Hollywood movies tend to use A-list actors as the replacements for main characters, but he was thrilled that they kept their roles for the movie and the Ps4 game.
Insomniac Game's very own Ted Price, talks about how they strove to adapt the Ratchet and Clank Movie/game right in an interview with IGN. Partnering up with Rainmaker Entertainment was like a breath of fresh air for them, since they tried to be as honest to the source material as possible. This has been one of their biggest collaborations, even to the point of sharing assets with each other. When asked what other Insomniac franchise they might like to see come to the big screen next, Price was quick to suggest Resistance. Apparently, they came pretty close to making that a reality.
This Thursday, Ratchet and Clank are the main attraction on Playstation's Magazine! Let's hope to find more info about the Ps4 game, which comes out in the USA in almost 2 months! For more news on Ratchet and Clank, stay tuned to Ratchet Galaxy.
A french animator named "Nikos Aliagas" is providing his voice for "Dallas Wanamaker" in the french Ratchet and Clank movie. You can watch the full clip here.
This, of course does not mean that Dallas will have the same voice actor in the english film. From a TV spot last week, it seems Dallas has kept his original voice actor. Only time will tell if Nika Flutterman will return to voice Juanita.
The scene seems to take place after Ratchet and Clank saved Qwark and the Galatic Rangers from Victor's army. Qwark, expecting a warm welcome, is surprised to find that Ratchet and Clank are the center of attention. While Ratchet is embracing the audience with cheerful glee, Clank seems to grow suspicious of Qwark, and is worried that Ratchet's fame has gone to his head.
Dallas asks Qwark if Ratchet and Clank will join the Galactic Rangers, to which Qwark replies: "Say what?" Based on previous trailers, we know Qwark reluctantly lets Ratchet and Clank join the team.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Ratchet and Clank (Ps4) appears on the cover of Playstation Magazine! The new issue will be released this Thursday, just 2 months away before Ratchet and Clank hits PS4's in the USA!
Some new gameplay was "unintentionally" shown during Gamestop's tour with Insomniac. In the new Song of the Deep sneek peek, the Ratchet and Clank Ps4 game was being tested by two Insomniacs. The 1st level appears to be Rilgar, noting the lazer prisons and the Ameboids--there was even a gas Tanker! When the level was paused, a small gadget quick-select was seen at the botton left, similar to the one from A Crack in Time. This would indicate that there are only 4 gadgets, one of which is the swingshot.
The second screen featured the hybrid of Hoven/Batallia. As Ratchet swingshots onto the battlefield, he activates what looks to be the Bouncer! Unfortunately, it wasn't used, nevertheless, it was nice to get a closer look at what is to come.
For more news on Ratchet and Clank, stay tuned to Ratchet Galaxy.
I will admit, both TV spots show a bit too much "sheep." Add that to the cheezy beat-boxing scene at the end, and you'll feel like Qwark does right now!
On a positive note, we do get to see more of characters like Elaris, Grimroth Razz, Cora, Drek, and Nefarious. The second clip takes on the cliche of having each character say "Ratchet" and "Clank" every second.
One thing I did not expect was to see Dallas Wannamaker, Juanita's news partner, get a scene. Aside from the fact that he's bald, his look is very much the same from the original, in Deadlocked. In fact, his voice actor may have made a return.
Ratchet and Clank certainly kick one villian's asteroid in these TV spots: Dr. Nefarious! He is seen not only armed with a Sheepinator, and an Alpha Disruptor, but also a RYNO IV!
It is possible that these TV spots will be shown during the Super Bowl as well, so for those of you willing watch The Broncos beat the Panthers in an awesome victory, you may want to tune in to that. For more news the Ratchet and Clank Movie, as well as the game, stay tuned to Ratchet Galaxy.
2016 is finally here, and that means Ratchet and Clank will soon blast into theaters and PS4s around the world! There has been movie trailers for Greece, Croatia, and most recently, Germany. Germany's trailer was also accompanied by 6 new Ratchet and Clank screenshots from the movie!
This first image shows The Galactic Rangers posing with their blasters, and Clank giving off a smug expression. Interestingly enough, Cora and Brax are in the same pose from the Hungarian movie poster.
Everyone gets a combuster--apparently. Captain Qwark and his Cronk-like Rangers head into battle on Aleero city!
In this image, we get to see Clank learning that he's a defect. A wireframe model of him is shown, which includes the jetboots from the movie trailer. There is also a warbot wireframe model on the screen.
Chairman Alanzo Drek is plotting his next move, while Qwark is behind him. It will prove interesting whether or not Qwark has allied himself with Drek, or is actual a hero this time. There are dozens of planets inside Drek's headquarters, one of which looks like Oxron, the blargian homeworld.
This image shows a pile of Blarg stuffed into an escape pod, by the look of things. It's amazing how little Drek resembles them.
In the last image, Cora is holding a robot minion upside-down, probably for interrogation. Ratchet, Clank, Qwark, and Brax watch the fun, but it seems that Brax may be injured. There are 5 other images that aren't new, but are in high-def.
There is also a new PS4 screenshot of Ratchet swimming under water to avoid a Sharkagator on Pokitaru. Insomniac Games will be at PAX South in San Antonio, TX, possibly to show off the Ps4 RaC game.

2015 has finally come to a close, and despite the fact that the Ratchet and Clank Movie/Ps4 game did not come this year, hardcore fans like you and me finally got to catch a huge glimpse of what the game and film have to offer! In fact, more news happened this year than any other year for our favorite duos!
As for news about release dates worldwide, Brazil has confirmed that the Ratchet and Clank Movie will premier on May 5th. Both Poland and Hungary have the Ratchet and Clank Movie trailer in their respective languages.
In addition, Hungary also has a new poster for the movie. While Ratchet and Clank are edited in cheaply, Qwark, Cora, and Brax have new poses. They are accompanied by Fongoid and Tharpod children, as seen in the trailer. Mr. Zurkon also gets his debut on the poster...3 times! And if you look real close, you notice a sheep in the background.
What a year it has been! And 2016 is set to be even better! Not only does the movie have a worldwide release, but the PS4 game comes to the USA on April 12th, in less than 4 months. Given the extra polish time, Insomniac is sure to make this one of the best Ratchet and Clank games yet! Here's to hoping for a wonderful year, courtesy of Kevin Munroe's weekly RaC instagram posts. Thank you all, and have a qwarktastic new year!
