Though, looking at what they did last year with The Simpsons, they might show pre-made, faux animatics as to not reveal anything about the new stuff. I'm personally not sure who is going to be on the Futurama panel, if it's been announced yet.

I agree with you on most of that, Ralph. I don't think that Comedy Central will just let the thing be shown at 10pm and onward and die out. They'll pair it with South Park to get maximum ratings. If Futurama just gets only decent ratings, it's a pretty sure bet that it'll be back. They don't want to have paid so much money for the show just to get 16 more episodes.

Due to all these factors, with the greatest being money, I'm fairly confident that there will be more Futurama after these movies, as I bet most of you are. Yes, we've been fooled many times into believing that Futurama would be back and then it turns out it wouldn't, but I think the stars are finally aligning for us.

According to IMDB the third movie is called FUTURAMA: Bender's Game. It sounds pretty good

I don't know if this has been discussed before.  I've been wondering if they're doing a version of the movies in 16x9 widescreen.  That would be verrry cool.

Billy West confirmed that he's showing up at the Futurama panel only this year.  Originally he wasn't going to come at all, but that he found out "pretty much everyone else is going," so he's going too.  big grin

I wonder if Katey Sagal will be there....

I went to the Comic-Con 2007 website to see when and who would be on the Futurama panel. It said it will be on Saturday, July 28th. Here's a short summary:
 
Quote
3:30-4:30 Futurama—Matt Groening is proud to announce the long-awaited return of the animated sci-fi comedy classic Futurama! Matt and executive producer David X. Cohen will be on the dais, accompanied by writer Ken Keeler, animation directors Peter Avanzino and Dwayne Carey-Hill, and for the first time together on stage in any universe, actors Billy West (Fry), Katey Sagal (Leela), John DiMaggio (Bender), and Maurice LaMarche (Kif Kroker)! The cast and crew will entertain your questions and present a sneak peek at Bender’s Big Score! in glorious wide-screen format! Moderated by Bill Morrison. Ballroom 20

Also, here's some other Futurama related things going on at Comic-Con:
 
Quote
Thursday July 26th:
2:00-3:00 Bongo Comics Sneak Peek—Bongo Comics offers a mouth-watering preview of upcoming projects featuring The Simpsons and Futurama. Managing editor Terry Delegeane and creative director Bill Morrison host a panel featuring the writers and artists who create the comics and books based on Matt Groening’s phenomenal TV shows. Find out what’s in the future for Futurama Comics and what to expect in Simpsons Comics and Simpsons Super Spectacular. Plus, Thomas Lennon (Reno 911), Tone Rodriguez (Violent Messiahs), and Gerry Duggan (The Last Christmas) will be on hand to talk about their terrifying contributions to this fall’s star-studded issue of Bart Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror! This is a ”must-attend” panel for all fans of The Simpsons and Futurama—and anyone looking for a place to sit down! Room 3


Saturday July 28th:
10:30-12:00 Animation Writers Caucus: Holy Bleep, Batman! or Censorship and Animation—What can't you say in a cartoon? What can't you show? Why? Who says? Writers and producers of daytime and primetime animated television series tell tales out of school about what they didn't get to do and what they got away, in a panel sponsored by the Writers Guild of America's Animation Writers Caucus. Featuring panelists Alan Burnett (Batman), Aaron Ehasz (Avatar), Eric Kaplan (The Drinky Crow Show), Craig Miller (Curious George), Andrew Nichols (Jimmy Neutron, Will & Dewitt), and Patric Verrone (Futurama). Room 8

10:45-12:00 The Simpsons–Having just aired its 400th episode, The Simpsons has now released its first feature film. Join members of the team responsible for both and find out how they did it, including Matt Groening (creator and executive producer), Al Jean (executive producer/head writer), David Mirkin (former executive producer), Matt Selman (executive producer), Michael Price (co-executive producer), David Silverman (director of The Simpsons Movie), Matt Warburton (supervising producer), Don Payne (consulting producer), and Yeardley Smith (voice of Lisa Simpson). Moderated by Bill Morrison. Hall H

That's all the Futurama related things at Comic-Con's schedule that I found. Sounds like a very interesting weekend for Futurama fans.

West, DiMaggio, Sagal and LaMarche?  Awesome to the fucking max.  I was hunting for info on the site last week and couldn't find anything relevant, so seeing all of this is great.  The end of July can't come soon enough.

Am I the only one that's a little worried about this "for a more mature audience" stuff? I know they said it won;t be as bad as Family Guy and all that, but I sort of felt that it had enough raciness before. That and the Beast With a Million Backs thing.

Yes, Sine Wave, you are the only one who is worried about it and you should be ashamed.

Since speculation can run amok here I wonder since the Direct-to-DVD movie and the Comedy Central cablecasts will be somewhat different in content, if eventually the CC episodes will be released on DVD too as a separate set.

That is a question I have wondered too. Now here is another question; if, as it suggests, the movies on DVD are going to be widescreen then will the episodes be broadcast on TV in widescreen too? And if not and they are broadcast on TV in full screen, then if they do release them as episodes on DVD as well then will they be full screen on DVD like on TV? My heads hurting...

Knowing how the people who attend the San Diego Comic Con are, it's a sure thing that an hour or two after the panel, it'll already have well over 1,000 hits on both YouTube and Digg.

I'm really excited about the new movies. The first one is coming out the day after my birthday, great b-day present if you ask me.

I really would've liked going to the convention. My family and I are going to CA about exactly a month after it's happening, which stinks. If only we had scheduled the trip a month earlier! XD

Also, I'm new. My name's Chou and I'm a big Futurama fan. Hope to get to know you all. ^^

I wish that I could get to the comic con but I live in NNY and have so much sports crap going on that It would be impossible. But if I can get the stuff on YouTube then all will not be lost for me. I have no doubt the the stuff will be up as soon as it happens. God I hate living in NNY at time. If I still lived in Ca I would so be there just for Futurama stuff that Saturday. If the interviews aren't taped I'm gonna Robot Santa on everyone's ass!!  evil laugh

I wonder if the clips shown will just be animatics, or will they be in full color yet? Last year The Simpsons Movie clips were rough pencil animatics, however they were shown a full 1 year before the Movie. With Futurama it is less than 5 months until Benders Big Score is released so you never know!...

I think it will be an actual clip. The movie is most likely completed by now, so showing an animatic would be kind of pointless.

Yeah I would make sense for it to be an actuall clip because as of right now Bender's Big Score is in post production. I think the other 3 are post production as well. But they might show the animatic and the full animated scene color like what the runners of the the Simpsons Myspace page so that you can see how the scene becomes great. Who knows?

I have a question...

So we know when these movies are broadcast as episodes they will be on Comedy Central, but will the DVD movies still be made and distrubuted by Fox Home Entertainment? And say at the end of the movies, will it still say 30th Century Fox entertainment?...

I believe that Comedy Central only has the broadcast rights to Futurama, much like what Cartoon Network had. To that, I think that the 30th Century Fox and all that jazz would still be entact. It's like how House is broadcasted on Fox but is still an NBC-Universal property and still has that logo at the end of the show.

Well, it sort of feels like the new Family Guy is trying to make too much of a point now in most of it's episodes.   Since Futurama already made points and was still very funny, I doubt it will end up that way.

Also, first post.  Yay.

Is there any chance there'll be some sort of teaser with The Simpsons movie? (even a teensy one?)since it does come out right around comic-con.

I don't know if there will be a teaser, but if the Simpsons movie doesn't have one, Futurama probably won't have one, either.

Well, considering that Comic-Con will be happening while The Simpsons Movie is being released in theaters, I doubt that it would get a teaser. Also, it's already been released that there will be a teaser for Futurama at Comic Con.
