  1. General Kenobi

    Nice animation but still not a fan of the track

  2. I didn’t like it. Would’ve liked it more if they had animated their characters instead of themselves. Honestly, if they had the budget for animation, why not? Maybe have a live action scenes of the cast playing at a table, that then focuses down at their miniatures as each one animates to life as the cast plays out a story that unfolds.

  3. sorry but im a little dissapointed here. CR used to get wonderful high quality traditional 2D animation of their characters and now…. roto? really? did the budget go down or something? beside, they already had a super cute filmed one, why change it if its to lower the quality?

  4. that’s such a cool intro. love it!

  5. The colors in this are absolutely beautiful, this is *stunning*.

  6. It’s cool I guess, but the previous one was so much better. Seeing them in slow-mo and with such chaos gave me chill every time.

  7. This is like… Better than I could do for sure! But it feels underwhelming after the others.

  8. Gotta be honest and say that this intro is just ok for me. The live action was much more fun. But we all know that C2 Your Turn To Roll was the ultimate opening and will never be topped.

  9. This was not very good, I’m sorry
