What is the Animatrix?

On February 4th, the world will find out…what a cool concept, the original Matrix used some pretty cool marketing to get the word out, but this time the Matrix is a phenomenon, so they’re releasing a bunch of Animated shorts on the web to hype The Matrix Reloaded (coming out in May) and The Matrix Revolutions (in December), and then they’re going to release it on DVD in June (capitalizing on the hype). Some of these shorts look really good, like Flight of the Osirus, which will be done by Square Studios, the dudes who did Final Fantasy.

Very cool indeed.
