Quantum Quest to Feature Jedis, Sith, and Starfleet and More

Quantum Quest

I’m not even sure how I’ve never heard of Quantum Quest. Sure, it’s not the latest Disney/Pixar or Dreamworks venture — a fact that becomes rather evident the moment you see the trailer for the film — but with a cast out of a sci-fi enthusiasts wet dream, you’d think it would have had a bit more press. Perhaps featuring Jedis and Starfleet Captains in the literal sense might have garnered a few more headlines,  but unfortunately they’ve had to settle for their voices instead — still an amazing feat nonetheless.  According the official website, the cast includes Chris Pine, Samuel L. Jackson, Hayden Christensen, Robert Picardo, Brent Spiner, James Earl Jones, William Shatner, and Mark Hamil among others.

If that’s not enough reason to put up with some slightly dated CGI, you’ll also want to note that the film takes place in our own Solar System, and actually uses images taken from the seven on-going NASA missions in order to provide scientifically accurate representations. Unfortunately, you may have to deal with wearing those bulky 3d glasses if you want to see it, as the film was created for stereoscopic 3D. On the other hand, you want have to wear them for very long, as the film only runs for roughly 50 minutes. 

Quantum Quest  is currently set to premiere at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia later this weekend.
