This 3D Futurama Video Is Almost Like Having Futurama Back

We were so happy-sad over the Futurama series finale last fall, but it was a fitting end to a series that ended up spanning a decade. Little did we know that this 3D take on Matt Groening and David X. Cohen’s series would be all we needed to suddenly want more.

Russian artist Alexey Zakharov has brought New New York—with a cameo by the Planet Express ship!—to life (or at least, stunning 3D), and wow does it look cool.

Sadly, the video is a mere 32 seconds, but Zakharov crams so much into it that it’s downright dazzling. The lines of air traffic, the twisty buildings, the insane colors—it’s all there! And if you squint, you can see an advertisement for Mom’s Old-Fashioned Robot Oil.

We’re hoping that the “test shot” in the title implies that this will be just the beginning of Zakharov’s Futurama-themed output. Because, just look at this art:

He did also make a short video focusing on the Planet Express ship itself:

Check out more excellent concept art on the artist’s website while we contemplate selling our rocket boosters to the devil in exchange for more videos. And in the meantime, if Zakharov wanted to make a 3D test shot of Stubby…we wouldn’t object.
