From Billy West:
HERE'S GREAT NEWS!
Here's the official word on Futurama!!
David X. phoned me about an hour ago and said that this Futurama project
is a done deal! Here's the word from DX---
There are 4 DVD movies that we'll start recording at the end of July or
August.Full feature length FUTURAMA movies.
Everybody is excited to get back together--as I am!

Into the Future,
Billy

Oh my God....

Dreams do come true.  *faints*

(This is, of course, assuming Mr. West isn't jumping the gun again, although I don't think he would misinterpret "4 movies" and "start recording in July." )

First: Awesome!

Second: 4 movies?! That's very surprising. I was hoping for one, and maybe some new episodes to follow, but 4 movies comes as a bit of a shock.

Apparently word has spread fast, I can't get Billy West's forums to come up from here atm, heh

The same thing may well start to happen here in the next 24hrs.

The page finaly came up for me, and the post does indeed exist. I'm tentatively begining the celebration, cracked a 40 of Old Fortran to let it breathe (and let the metal shavings settle out), though my inner cynic hasn't been silenced yet. Hopefully we'll hear directly from Fox in the near future!

*pokes first half of sig* Don't get too happy, in case FOX screws it up in some terrible twist of fait. It's happened before that the show's getting revived/movies are gonna come out.... But, what the hell, if it's Billy's word, to hell with my theory! *breaks open booze bottle for all*

Wow, Futurama is following the same pattern as Star Trek. Cancelled sci-fi show, just over 70 episodes, then it hit popularity after its cancelation and now they're bringing out a shitload of movies.  big grin

Nope, it's real. 

Hopefully will find out more details about this soon.

I'm sorry, I'm not following your simile. In what way is it like the best thread? and what WAS the best thread?

[/smartass]
Seriously, this thread will now be my answer whenever I ask myself why I started spending so much time on these forums.

[edit]
unless this turns out to be BS, in which case I'll probably go back to my old position of silently boycotting fansites of all kinds

this is so awsome. but fox is trying to see how popular the dvds are so they can see if they should bring it back, so alot people are probaly going to download it like they did the family guy movie. and if alot of people do that than futurama might not come back.

You are exactly right.  So that means:  Do not even consider downloading these movies if you value your life.    evil laugh

That seems presumptuous; even if Billy West is corect, fox may not be planning a return to the series at all. If they were, why plan 4 movies?

incidentally that's the bit that my inner cynic hangs up on. 4 movies? That doesn't sound like the fox I know..

If Billy says it, it's not April 1st, and seems to be in Billy posting form, it's likely true. We'll wait for CGEF to say something about it to fully do the fangasm, but, until then, let's do the semi-fangasm, shall we?

mArc and DXC apparantly keep in contact, so anything mArc posts regarding this announcement will likely be paraphrased from David X. Cohen.

I am happy, but remain cautious until there is official word from FOX, David X. Cohen, and/or Matt Groening.

Thought I'd break my 5-year IRC fast in celebration of the promising news.

...

Big mistake. Huge.
Dammit, I'm excited and I have no outlet! Argh! It's like being a horny teenage virgin all over again! My friends are useless, the most positive reaction I got from any of them was "That's cool, I guess."
Sigh...

I'm still going to be a little cautious about this until I hear official news about this. But when the first one comes out, Fox will start to get some respect from me.

I'd be a little more convinced if the supposed "Insiders" weren't posting as guests, but I don't lurk/post around RDS's boards, so what do I know?

We'll overall this news (billy's post) is a lot more concrete than anything we've had before regarding the much rumoured futurama movie(s). It's possible that he's jumping the gun, but with DXC saying that its a done deal and naming a vague recording date, its hard not to get excited, but i think the real time for cebebration is when the 1st movie hits the shelves
