Jesus has no use for money! But he does have a use for women with low self esteem. And he don't talk about rumours.

The news is real.  It's been in the works for about a year and a half now.  You aren't the only australian btw, and all the australians here know as much as the americans.... well except for the people in the know.   roll eyes

Mmmm... news? You mean the news that they are still just possibly definitely thinking about it? That is about as far as things were confirmed and that was almost a month ago. Everything else has about 2 or 3 degrees of separation.

Well, rumors are not very trustworthy, so it's always nice when you get a little nod about it from people involved.

Makes it a bit more realistic...

It's been thought possible by a big chunk of the people involved. I feel like it's practically in my DVD shelf, but it might not even be made at all.

from billywest.com
I did post that info that when I spoke to David X.Cohen (director extraordinare).He verified the rumor that not only were they in talks with FOX ,they've mentioned a Futurama movie to DVD with the possiblity of second one as well.
I have a feeling a few people here have done their detective work and found out the movie is a go.I heard that too.Futurama lives.
Geez,everything happens when I'm not looking.I promise I'll get with it.I can't wait to get the call.

I'm so glad to hear they're, at the very least, talking about the possibility of making a movie... I've been missing new Futurama stuff for so long.

On the other hand, call me strange but I'm not sure I'd like the idea of new Futurama chapters if they lead the series to something like the current chapters of "The Simpsons".
I just don't like what they've become and I think stopping a series when it's still really great is better than going on 'til it's not interesting anymore (and I do respect those who like it ^^)

That thread is for talking about Aussie TV, I know this because I use that thread. Its not for general Aussie chit chat.

One of my brothers mates told me that there was going to be new Futurama going straight to DVD, but I dont know how he found out about it.
What we need is Official news about the Futurama movie(s)

Well thats really what I meant, "talk to them (about Aussie TV)". Its the only general area I could think of where Aussies congregate on this board.

SPACE, it seems to go on forever. But then it gets cancelled before it's time and ends up on a network that appreciates it and rabit fans buy all the dvds but still stay up until 11 on weekdays to watch it and start internet debates about it ever coming back, until it finally does! But, that's how you play the game.

wwe_fk, this post comes at the same time someone apparently hacked the forum and started talking as Billy?  I'm still highly skeptical.

I'm still with JBERGES about the whole "coulda-been-a-hacker" thing. I mean, even though it would be great if what "Billy" was saying about the movies was true, that may not be the case. I'm just saying that, y'know, this may not be the truth. I sure as hell hope it is, but if it's not, then, well, us Futurama fans have been disappointed before...we should be used to it by now. (That is so sad, isn't it?)

So, by my calculations, that puts two of us on the Skepticism Ship. Anyone else care to join us?

Aye captain! Me likes to join ye Ship of Skepticism, being it is the fasts growing ship on the sea. The Ship o' Truth ain't be a good ride for such a voyage, as it is not so believable, aye?

In other words, I'm also skeptical of the truth of the post, being what happened during the time of the post.

I agree with you Gork. I'll join your ship.

But I'm thinking it was a hacker too. I find it too good to be true to see that "Billy" said himself that there was a possibility. I mean it's what we all want to here but we can't trust some words by someone who might not even bethe actual person. And if it is a hacker, they should be beheaded for making us feel happy. And then taking it away like they did to Venus.

His first post about it was way before the hacker though, and it was never corrected.  And though the newest one could be the hacker, it does read like genuine Billy West.

AND remember that we have that audio clip (from a commentary for another animated show) where John Dimaggio confirms the movies being talked about.  So while I have no problems boarding the skepticism ship (we get to make people walk the plank, right?) about this particular message, it doesn't mean that we should write off the whole thing.

...second. Also, I very reluctantly place myself on the skeptical slip. I desperately want to believe that was Billy, but that hacker logging in at the same time does not bode well. Still, none of this contradicts the already strong rumors that a Futurama movie is being discussed.  smile

Oh, it's all so confusing with the hackers and the not knowing what to believe... Gorky: I wanna join your Skepticism Ship!

Although, I have noticed that since I last went to billywest.com, he's added a lot of Futurama stuff. Last time, I was annoyed because there was very little Futurama stuff, and now it seems to be the center of attention. For example: The intro is 80% Futurama and the loading screen is Fry. A sign maybe?

this post is a land mark. this marks the line in the sand that was drawn when you guys lost hope. I think the post is 100% correct. when the movie is annocced I'm going to laugh in all your faces...through smillys.

Regardless of any hackers, West is pretty blunt about his belief that the movie will go ahead here:

It's from the 2005 Comic Con, so that's this week, maybe two days ago.

...And I hate using smileys. I've never used one on PEEL.

...Wait a second. Billy West + Video of him maybe two days ago + Futurama Movie = *sqee*

Hacker skepticism fading... fading... fading...RISING!...fading... fading... gone

Well, that at least clears up the hacker stuff... because even if it was a hacker, West basically just said what was posted on the forums, and it would be difficult to hack the video to change Billy's voice.

Now to hope the talks conclude the way Billy thinks they will, and then pray for an official announcement...

I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen the video with my own eye.

Still, the cynic in me says there's a long way to go from an anouncement to a DVD.

I will remain cautiously hopefull.

Sorry bout the footie reference. But lets all hope for the best. Maybe if the current DVD sells well, they'll do a movie. Why else should they release a DVD now?!

Well, the Monster Mania DVD is in no way related to this rumor about the other DVD.

But many think that if this upcoming one sells well, Groening and Cohen have more of an advantage at negotiations with FOX.

Everyone overboard! Get off the Skepticism Ship while you still can!  tongue

Seriously, that clip that DtB posted is a good sign. And, since the whole hacker thing has been explained, then we're good again. Like Bergey said, all that's left now is to wait for some official confirmation.

Heh, heh...Bergey made a Simpsons reference. Always makes me smile...
