SABATON revealed they’ve busy working on a movie for the last 2 years.
SABATON will release “The War To End All Wars” movie, featuring songs from the band’s tenth studio album, “The War To End All Wars” in 2003. The movie is about World War I and it will be animated.
Currently in post-production, the movie is being made in collaboration with Yarnhub animation studio. SABATON previously worked with the studio on other projects, including the most recent animated story video for “The Red Baron”.
SABATON bassist Pär Sundström explained: “We premiered an early version of this movie to journalists during a preview session for our latest album, ‘The War To End All Wars’, at the Royal Military Museum in Brussels. Witnessing their reaction to it was priceless — they were speechless — so we decided to take it to the next level and push the boundaries even further for a global audience.”
David Webb of Yarnhub said: “When SABATON asked us to go beyond anything we had produced before and jointly create a film for their new album, we were filled with excitement and trepidation. It was a massive undertaking that required new people, technology, and skills. But we couldn’t miss the opportunity. We often say our mission is to harvest goosebumps, and our work with SABATON has always been the most successful in that regard. It’s been two years in the making, but after spending many late nights and weekends in meetings with the band, the end result is something unique. A new way to listen to the album; a deeper understanding that helps the viewer experience the bravery and tragedy that was the inspiration for SABATON‘s latest masterwork.”
