Rock & Rule (known as Ring of Power outside of North America) is a 1983 Canadian animatedmusical science fiction fantasy film from the animation studio Nelvana. It was produced and directed by the company’s founders, Michael Hirsh, Patrick Loubert, and Clive A. Smith. The film features the voices of Don Francks, Greg Salata, and Susan Roman. It was the studio’s first feature film and the first one produced entirely within Canada.
Centering on rock and roll music, the film includes songs by Cheap Trick, Chris Stein and Debbie Harry of the pop group Blondie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, and Earth, Wind & Fire. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic United States populated by mutant humanoids. With John Halfpenny, Patrick Loubert, and Peter Sauder at the helm of its screenplay, Rock & Rule was a heavily derived spin-off of Nelvana’s earlier TV special from 1978, The Devil and Daniel Mouse. Its distributor, MGM, acquired United Artists at the time and the new management team had no interest in it. As a result, it was never released in North America except for a limited release in Boston, Massachusetts. It received minor attention in Germany, where it was screened at a film festival. it was funded in part by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, which had obtained the Canadian TV rights. A hard-to-findVHS was released at that time, followed by a laserdisc release. The film developed a cult followingfrom repeated airings on HBO and Showtime and the circulation of bootleg VHS copies at comic book conventions booths (with Ralph Bakshi named as director). In 2005, Unearthed Films released a special 2-disc edition DVD of the film.http://www.samproof.tv/2014/07/20/rock-and-rule-in-the-viewing-room-playing-in-30-minutes/https://i0.wp.com/www.samproof.tv/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/NewImage7.png?fit=600%2C464https://i0.wp.com/www.samproof.tv/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/NewImage7.png?fit=150%2C116videoanimation,film,movie,rock and RuleComing up Next in the viewing room it's the 80's classic animation musical Rock and Rule Join us live http://www.samproof.tv/watch/ It'll be starting in about 20 minutes here http://www.samproof.tv/watch/ Rock & Rule (known as Ring of Power outside of North America) is a 1983 Canadian animatedmusical science fiction fantasy film from the animation studio Nelvana.
