Overwatch’s animated shorts are always community favorites, but some hardcore fans took it to another level and made a live action short film featuring a ton of heroes from the game’s cast.


“Reunion” the most recent Overwatch animated short, was released at BlizzCon 2018 and introduced the newest hero: Ashe, and her sidekick B.O.B.

The “Lion’s Return” short made by Think Big Studios features Tracer and Soldier 76 seeking out Reinhardt and Brigitte in Eichenwalde.


After the pair find Brigitte, the film moves quickly through the map and show one interpretation of how Reinhardt and Brigitte ended up joining Overwatch.

It also features appearances from Widowmaker, Sombra and Reaper in their roles as Talon agents attempting to throw a wrench into Overwatch’s plans.



The final scene even features a tribute to Developer Jeff Kaplan with Sombra and D.Va, which could mean Think Big is already working on their next live action production.

The Overwatch Community is famous for being one of the most creative around, but Think Big has taken it to the next level this time.
