Claptrap has become one of the most iconic characters in Borderlands lore. The snarky little robot is famous for his awkward dialogue, over-the-top personality and occasional bad jokes. Now that production on the movie adaptation has wrapped, we can finally see what Claptrap will look like when the Borderlands: The Movie is released in theaters next year!
Jack Black has been tapped as the voice actor for the sassy robot in the upcoming movie, which is based on the iconic Gearbox video game series. The one-wheeled yellow robot is the recognized mascot of the Borderlands series, so any Borderland movie would be incomplete without him.
Motion picture Claptrap bears several similarities to the video game character, such as his the inverted trapezoid shape of its body and yellow and white paint job. The character also has a single lens eye, a singular tire, and the Claptrap’s signature mechanical claw-like arms.
The Borderlands movie follows Lilith’s (Cate Blanchett) quest to return to the Pandora to find the missing daughter of “the universe’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas.” On her quest, she encounters a cast of familiar Borderlands characters from the video game franchise including Dr. Tannis (Jamie Lee Curtis), Moxxi (Gina Gershon), Commander Knox (Janina Gavankar) and Krieg (Florian Munteanu).
The production team has not yet revealed the specific role Claptrap will play in the movie, but he is expected to play a pivotal role.
The film, which is said to be highly faithful to the original look-and-feel of the Borderlands video game series, is being directed by Eli Roth and scripted by Craig Mazin, and is expected to arrive in theaters in 2022.
