Video Spotlight #50 RWBY "Red" Trailer
Sharing videos I managed to find scattered across the internet.
Just after ten years of Red VS Blue (yes, go watch all of it right now) we have a preview of the next web series by Rooster Teeth Productions. Don't worry, word on the street is that they aren't ending Red VS Blue just yet. This is extra sauce.
You may... might... possibly recognize the fight choreography as none other than the brilliant animator Monty Oum. Don't recognize him? He's the one that made Haloid (link here: Haloid).
"Red like roses fills my dreams and brings me to the place you rest
White is cold and always yearning burdened by a royal test
Black the beast descends from shadows
Yellow beauty burns gold"
RWBY (pronounced the way you would expect, like ruby) consists of the four main characters Red, White, Black, and Yellow. From this trailer it would appear they're based on fairy tale characters. Red is clearly inspired by Red Riding Hood. I don't think anyone is going to argue otherwise. The rest are currently being speculated so I'll throw my hand in. White could be Snow White. Black might be inspired by Beauty and the Beast. Yellow is possibly lifted from Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, or even Goldilocks at this point. Hell, she might be a combination of them all. Who knows? That's the one that's killing me.
This is Kylak signing out and grabbing my own scythe/rifle... scyfle for personal use.
