Film: Ratchet & Clank
Set for release in 2015 Ratchet & Clank (and Captain Qwark) make their big screen debut. Insomniac is to have a big part in its production and the writer for A Crack is Time is attached for the screenplay, so there's hope it will avoid the typical problems.

A game is confirmed to be released on the PlayStation 4 as a tie-in with the film, which confirms that the film is a reboot of the franchise.

  • Adaptation Expansion: The game is based off the story of the first Ratchet & Clank game but the Galactic Rangers from Up Your Arsenal make an appearance.
  • Ascended Fanboy: In this movie, Ratchet admires the Galactic Rangers and dreams of being one of them.
  • Big Bad: Officially confirmed to be Chairman Drek from the first game, though Dr. Nefarious is also making some sort of appearance.
  • Butt Monkey: Captain Qwark in the Teaser trailer.
  • Take That: In the trailer, Qwark starts fist-pumping as a prank by the Animators. Qwark says this:
    Qwark: Argh, fist-pumping...! Now you've crossed the line!
