Fortnite Animated Fan Film ‘Saving Private Leviathan’ Is Wonderfully Adorable (VIDEO)


From a giant burger appearing in the desert to a laser tag adventure popping up, there’s no doubt that Epic Games’ Fortnite has invaded Earth. It’s become an international phenomenon over the past year, and there seems to be no end in sight. That said, fans come up with all sorts of ways to incorporate the game into their projects, with the latest being an animated short film that revolves around everyone’s favorite shotgun-wielding aquatic creature.

Saving Private Leviathan, uploaded by YouTuber To Binge explores a brief period in the character’s life. After falling victim to a destructive RPG shot to the face, the poor little guy tumbles to the ground, tank shattered and all. Left to dry out in the sun, Ramirez comes to the rescue with a shopping cart to assist the ailing Leviathan. After that, adventure ensues. Check it out below:

The video’s description simply reads, “Ramirez goes on an arduous journey to bring Leviathan to Loot Lake.” Upon arriving at their destination, Leviathan is met with what one can only assume is an undesirable ending. We won’t spoil it for you right here, you’ll have to watch the video to find out.
