The Animatrix is an animated anthology movie that was created by the Wachowskis and released by WB on June 3rd, 2003. When it aired on Adult Swim in 2004, two of the shorts (both parts of The Second Renaissance) had to be censored for strong violence and nudity. When it aired again on December 18th, 2021, the order of all of the shorts was re-arranged, The rating was bumped up to a TV-MA-SV, and fewer content edits were made.
