What is The Animatrix?

It is an ultra-futuristic, mind-bending experience that features nine animated short films, created in the anime style pioneered by Japanese animation artists. These feature-quality short animated films, each between six and seventeen minutes long, tell new stories set in the revolutionary world of The Matrix, the groundbreaking virtual reality action thrillers created by writers-directors Andy and Larry Wachowski, and the highly anticipated second and third chapters in their film trilogy, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. Viewers of The Animatrix will learn new details of the genesis of The Matrix, and meet new characters whose adventures are inter-woven with the fabric of the feature films.

The Animatrix is also a bold experiment in "shared world" storytelling, in which the Wachowski Brothers pay tribute to one of the pop culture sources that fired their own cinematic imaginations, the uniquely Japanese genre of animated futurism known as "anime." The film brings together some of the most respected and innovative veterans of Japan's flourishing and globally popular animation industry and turns them loose in the Wachowskis' teeming fictional universe.
