Ubisoft has no involvement with movie, Hybride studio July 10th, 2008

This comes as a huge blow to fans that want a faith­ful adap­ta­tion of the PoP fran­chise. A com­pany spokesper­son for Ubisoft, in speak­ing with CVG, said that Ubisoft has no involve­ment with Disney’s Prince of Per­sia movie:

“The new Prince of Per­sia film is a col­lab­o­ra­tion between [Prince of Per­sia cre­ator] Jor­dan Mech­ner and Dis­ney,” it said. “Ubisoft has no involvement.”

This also means that the recent acqui­si­tion of Hybride Tech­nol­ogy by Ubisoft is com­pletely unre­lated to the Prince of Per­sia movie, some of us had hoped that the effects stu­dio behind 300 would soon be com­ing aboard the project — though this lat­est news does put down these rumors, a fur­ther com­ment is encouraging:

“Hybride and Ubisoft will work together to share tech­nol­ogy and develop tools in order to opti­mize the cre­ation of both video games and visual effects. Ulti­mately, we expect to use the part­ner­ship to lever­age our brands in the movie industry.”

Prince of Per­sia was delayed for May 28th 2010, sucks but at least it’s a bet­ter release win­dow.

I surely hope the movie will be a suc­cess. It’s unfor­tu­nate that Ubi isn’t involved though. I hope Dis­ney can keep the film as faith­ful as it is to the games even with­out their help.
