Okay, I just got back from the IMDB.  It said that the Futurama direct to video movie will be out in 2007, and it already has a plotline and nobody believes it because the movie hasn't been greenlighted yet. 

So, the question is, when will the movie be greenlighted so we fans can believe it's going to happen?  I'm sick of fans being hesitant on whether or not they should believe the movies are going to come to be or not!

Read the last couple pages, and you'll see that it basically doesn't matter what IMDB says about the movie, since almost anyone can add what they want about it.  And if you were paying attention you'd see that the plot was a fake one added by a poster here to prove just that point.

And I'm sure we're all looking forward and waiting for when the movie gets greenlighted (IF it does happen).  But it's not like Groening or someone promised to bring the movie to us or anything, and you have to understand that some ideas like this don't just immediately go into production without any sort of wait.  So it's not like we have much of a right to complain about the wait...  it's not like somebody major and super official promised that it would get greenlit soon or anything (and no, Billy West and DiMaggio don't really count).  Just be glad that we might get something at all.  :P

You could set your cryogenic tube to 2007 (I think that's the snooze feature) and see if it's available when you wake up.

I think the hang up is probably money, just a mere few million $. I recall someone credible source saying something about they (Fox) were looking into getting it together.
And that was about the last word from official sources. My guess would be greenlighting is roughly the same as cash flow. Talking and walking and all that.

All I can say is to keep making noise; write to FOX (e-mails don't carry the same weight as snail mail); buy the DVD's (FOX understands money) and send a line to Cartoon Network for saving our favorite show (at least CN did advertise and promote the show - it has been on Adult Swim constantly for at least 2 year - no other show has been able to sustain that type of record).

In the 70's a small group of Trekkies got larger and larger until Paramount took notice.  The history is clear - Trek is Paramount's largest cash cow of all time.  A failed Sci-Fi series (cancelled before its time) that barely lasted 3 years has become so ingrained in American pop-culture that there is no escaping it.  Will Futurama be able to become a juggeraught like Trek?  No, but we may be able to get FOX to make a couple of DVD movies and maybe (just maybe) bring the series back to life. 

Like Trek, Futurama is expensive to make.  Granted, FOX killed the show by not promoting it, pre-empting it constantly, changing its timeslot, etc.  WE (the fans) have to let FOX know that they can make money off of Futurama.  Thankfully, the 'reality series' craze is now starting to die off, so the dirt cheap alternative to Futurama won't be there to muddy the waters of profibilty.

Remember Bjo Trimble - the savior of Star Trek - one voice that kept the series alive for a 3rd season and was instrumental in getting the movies made.

I am happy for the next 20 minutes.

I just hope the people at Fox aren't just screwing with our heads.

If i jump on this bandwagon, i got a bad feeling, the production will be stopped.

That better not happen.

On Gotfuturama.com

I'm getting more and more emails about IMDb "confirming" that the straight to DVD movie is going ahead. At first it only was the release date they listed (2007) and now, that they published a plot line.

The plot summary on there was made up and submitted by the user Smitty on PEEL to prove that anything can get published on IMDb. Unless Groening and Cohen came up with the same idea, that plotline is NOT LEGIT as far as we know.

When we get actual confirmation from sources to be trusted, we'll let you know...

maybe Im missing something, but havent we known about this article for more than a month now?  Its good that Billy West says the movies are greenlit, but it doesnt mean anything until Matt Groening or Fox confirms it.  I hope I dont have a clue what Im talking about...

Yeah, I'd say so...but, people could go on and on until they passed out or lost their voice on the matter..until (hopefully if they are) the movie's made and is released; FG movie's coming out 9-27-05

EDIT: Yay! I just realised that my request to have the plotline deleted has gone through. The system works! ...sort of

EDIT EDIT (to avoid double-posting): Seeing as how Billy West didn't read my question on the forum, I sent him a private massage in hopes that it will get through.  roll eyes

You sent him a private "massage"?! How does THAT work? O_O;; (I'm just teasing, I've made worse typos.) ^_^ Anywho, I'm so happy that Fox finally realized how many fans Futurama has. They said it was mainly DVD sales that prompted their greenlight, but did TV ratings on [as] factor in, too? (Yes, I *am* just making conversation. Isn't it a lovely day?) *dances around in circles*

Billy West is the voice of Fry, the Professor, Zoidberg, and Zapp Brannigan, to name a few. And he's probably talking about the forum on his website, www.billywest.com

I hope they don't have to recap the plot just to catch up with new fans.

Now, that's not necessarily a good thing. While it's good to be a purist, I think that new fans should always be welcome. If you love a show enough, it shouldn't matter how long you've liked it. I know of plenty of anime that I've gotten into after they've stopped airing on TV, but that doesn't mean I like it any less. I say: the more, the merrier! *huggles newbies 'til they flee in fear*
