Shaq-Fu (working title, Shaq-Fu: The Movie) is a 1996 animated direct-to-video film based on the 1994 game Shaq-Fu.

Plot Edit

The premise closely follows that of the game.

Reception Edit

The film received mixed reviews. The more critical reviews came from those who questioned why an adaption was made for an ill-received game. However, the film has garnered a small fanbase, with them agreeing that the film was superior to the game it was based on, as well as praising the animation, acting and story.

Trivia Edit

  • This wouldn't be the only film by Warner Bros. to feature a basketball star. A few months after this film Warner Bros. released Space Jam, which starred Michael Jordan.
  • Interestingly, this film featured Michael Jace who played Shaquille O'Neal. Michael Jace would go on to play Michael Jordan in the 1999 telefilm Michael Jordan: An American Hero and Michael Jordan would appear in Space Jam by Warner Bros. who released this film.
  • Electronic Arts, the publishers of Shaq-Fu, didn't give Elliot Strange their blessing to produce this film. When he brought it up to them, they laughed it off and simply told him he could make a film based on Shaq-Fu.
  • Trailers for the film had the tagline "At least you're not playing the adventure."
  • The video release only featured a trailer for Space Jam prior to the start of the film. This was Strange's idea due to him wanting to use promotions relevant to the film.
