To be realistic about this, a part of me wants to believe it's true, but a part of me doesn't believe it.  I think it would be cool to see some Futurama movies come onto DVD. 

If Billy West was really talking to David X. Cohen about this, then maybe it is true!  I would like to see Futurama come back direct to DVD if it doesn't come back to television.  This could probably be the only alternative we fans can have.  So, let's hope this comes to fruition! (SP?)

If you're referring to my nickname, I'd like to say that it can be explained in a long, boring story I'd prefer not to get into.

Billy nor David have returned my emails.

At KP2001, I'd like the movie triology as well, but didn't Family Guy start off with this kind of talk as well?(Dun Dun Dunnnnn)

Show some freaking manners, goddamnit!!

It's like this: if you ask a polite question and wait a while someone will answer you. If you act like a spoiled brat everybody will ignore you. Right now I'm ignoring you.

And learn some grammar.

I just got back from vacation, and I must say, this is the best day ever.  I got good grades in my classes, heard from an old friend and best of all, read this thread and found out about all the new Futurama stuff going on!

Yay! So excited!

These rumors, hearing about Arrested Development's renewal, and seeing Revenge of the Sith in one week has made me very happy. Anyway, I'm up to something here...

If a Futurama movie was greenlit, say, next week, how long do you think it would take? If, as the original rumor stated, Matt really did have the scripts written, how much longer would it take? After scripting, there's storyboarding, dialogue recording, anamatic, coloring, ADR, editing, and scoring. Now, it takes 9 months to produce an episode, but that's with 21 other episodes in production. Logically, a 90 minute movie, assuming they worked as diligently and the animation quality was similar to that of the show, would take about 1/4 that time, right?

I'm not factoring into this finding and training a new team of animators. So my real question is this: At what point was Futurama officially given the go ahead by FOX? And did Futurama sit on the shelf for a while before its March 1999 premiere?

I'm wondering if all of the voice actors would return. I strongly believe Billy West, John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche, and Tress MacNeille would. Katey Segal has some time on her hands now that 8 Simple Rules is cancelled. Frank Welker does everything (if he's even needed). So what are Lauren Tom, Phil LaMarr, and Dave Herman up to these days? How are their schedules?

I probably should have saved this long winded post until we had more information, but I'm bored...

@j_o- Go to vh1.com and search for the voice actors and see what they've been doing lately. It shows just about everything they've done and what they're going to do in the near future. Search the name under "movies".

Okay, I looked some stuff up. Lauren isn't doing much, Phil has been kinda active with Shark Tale and Justice League, Dave hasn't been active since Father of the Pride, and John, Billy, and now Katey are pretty much open, but Billy does Looney Toons and such, but we all know he'd want to come back and do some Fry, Zapp, Farnsworth, Zoidberg, and his other voices again. And I'm pretty sure Maurice and Tress are open.

Again, the voice actors shouldn't even be an issue.  Voice work is very accomadating and doesn't take up much time, especcially when you're only doing a movie.  Voice actors on a movie can do all their lines in a few hours time if need be.  The other stuff they're doing is simply not an issue.  The only thing that would be is if they didn't want to do it for whatever reason, and I have no reason to believe that any of them wouldn't do it.

For the rest, I think a lot of it depends on how much they want to increase the animation quality (if at all) and how careful they want to be in making sure the script is absolutely perfect.  Whatever Rough Draft is doing now might be an issue as well, though I doubt it would factor in much.

You'd expect a lot more buzz around here with a movie 80% or so confirmed.

Movie talk is 100% confirmed.
Actual movie is 0% confirmed.

I'm cautiously optimistic, but refuse to take anything for granted.  I still encourage people to write FOX to show your support (not by bashing FOX)

It's died down the last couple days since the initial confirmation of FOX discussion has passed and we're pretty much in the waiting stage now.  Obviously, not too much fun.  Only so much excitement can be brought about without us knowing for sure.  :/

Actually, this is something to celebrate. I never thought this would happen either, even if nothing else becomes...

How sweet would a DTV Futurama movie be? There are so many solid possibilities for feature-length stories. And the possibility of a trilogy? Too cool to even wonder about just now...

A DVD movie with commentary and a few deleted scenes and all that jazz?   big grin

I wonder if the new DVD "Monster Robot..." is a test of what they are considering. The equivalent of about 4 TV episodes on a single disc rather than a feature-length, multi-disc set. 3 discs would be close to a season's TV episode run. What's the run time of an episode on DVD without commercials? Better yet, what's the runtime available on a single DVD disc?

Average episode length is 22 minutes, give or take about a half a minute.  As for minutes available on DVD discs, I wouldn't know.  I suppose it might depend on quality, compression, etc.  My guess would be 200 minutes or so.  I could be (and probably am) wrong.

Let me just say this for saying this purposes:

I watched the commentary to TDHAIP again today. I took notice to what Matt said at the end. He said someting on the lines of "see you on the next DVD". Obviously, his plan is working out. And please don't make a smart-ass comment like "No!? Really?!" about this.

Also, I listened to the table reading of TDHAIP. I thought that some of the jokes, such as the Bohemian Rhapsody reference, were very funny. What I'm getting to is if a new season doesn't happen, how about they make the original script versions of some episodes and release them to DVD?

Remember that Dotslash Effect thing? What about the Cinescape Effect?

I want to see and hour-long "Devil's Hands" with the whole opera in and non-rushed emotional development, but that's about as likely to happen as a chocolate kettle.

As opposed to feature films, which have been bumped up to cardboard-hammer level of probability.

Leave "The Devil's Hands" the way it is.  After listening to the table read for that episode, I'd say the that the vast majority of the stuff that didn't make it in was well left out.

I sort of know what you mean.  On at least a couple different occasions I've read posts from people there that just make the movies sound as though they've already been confirmed or something.  And I'm pretty sure it isn't just my blind hope kicking in; some of the comments just seem so suspicious.
