judging by Popeye having hair, this will be an origin story, perhaps?

It must be. But notice how he doesn't have his pipe.

I didn't know they were doing this, I am kinda excited for it. I liked Popeye as a kid. With Peanuts coming back too, I kinda hope we will also see the Jetsons and Flintstones return. In some capacity.

I heard something about the Jetsons coming back in live action form.

Looks pretty cool. I'm not a big fan of his voice though. It doesn't sound crusty enough.

Good God, what's with this abuse of CGI? Are people too lazy to draw anymore?

Afraid so my friend. In this day and age, everything is either CGI or "flashimation". It's depressing.

You love this signature.

The good news is Genndy Tartakovsky is directing this.

CGI, like most "digital" things, is infinitely replicable.

Whereas drawing (or painting, as traditional feature-length animation
with a decent budget usually was) requires of at least one or two dozen artists a particular sweep of the hand for application of medium, once the character models are created computer animation requires only a plugging in of data points and keyframes by any number of technicians. Hopefully they retain the passion of animation and understand concepts such as squash and stretch, which I would believe in this case. But it is a very different kind of skill, much easier to do and learn and reproduce.

Live action? That sounds interesting. 

As for hand drawn animation versus CGI, I can't recall where I heard this but it was an interview about the topic and it described that younger generations only know CGI and that is what appeals to them. I have no idea how this information came to pass, but I could understand how that would be the case. However, I feel like certain movies would just be incredible with hand drawn animation. I think about Frozen or Tangled, and just how breathtaking those films could have been had they not been CGI. Not that they were bad the way they were, but I just really miss hand drawn movies.
