   Has anyone else been hearing any rumors about a 5th Futurama movie? I've been hearing stories, lately, about a 5th movie being in the very early stages of creation. From what I hear, a writer from outside of the usual stable of Futurama writers has written a story intended to be turned into another Futurama animated DVD. As I understand it, the working title is "Futurama: The Eyes Have It". My source has given me a bunch of details about this movie and it sounds totally awesome!

   Has anyone else been hearing anything about a 5th movie? If what I've been hearing and reading is even half-true, and this rumored story does become a Futurama animated DVD, it is gonna be one kick-ass flick! I've got more details than I have mentioned so far, but I'm not 100% sure about the source. If anyone would like to discuss this further, and is interested in reading the details I've read, then please post a response and let me know.

Guess you have to ask yourself why your source would know anything about it. Not saying it ain't so anything is possible but some things are more likely than others. It seems very unusual for anyone but the top people at Futurama not to be the first to give out any info on anything. Everyone else is buttoned up with NDA's putting their jobs on the line.

Well, first off, I think its a good idea to give us a link on where you saw this, or at least who said it, and two, it is possible, but its nothing certain as of now. Either Billy West or David X Cohan said that once these movies are finished, they'll give a new series or new movie within the next year from the release of Into The Wild Green Yonder and we'll know whats going on once ITWGY

That's just what I was thinking after reading the original post.

I don't know how legible that information could be, krunc. Like what Dr. Bender Nye stated, I do remember hearing somewhere that Comedy Central will not determine whether or not they want to renew the series for another run until they see some pleasing DVD sales (which, by the way, are looking pretty good, not totally excellent, but positively hopeful). If there is talk on a fifth DVD, then it should be brought up this weekend at this year's Comic Con.

TV Series, Danny Elfman, or Chris Nolan series?


I hope they'll bring it up at Comic Con, although the name of the panel is "Futurama Secrets Revealed," if I remember correctly. The panel's on Saturday, if there is a live feed.

Edit: I did remember correctly!

I don't think Groening schedules these things.  Last year The Simpsons panel was in the largest room at the 'Con, on the other side of the convention center, and it was several hours before the Futurama panel.

I also don't think this rumored fifth movie is more than a rumor, but we'll see what Saturday brings in terms of news.

   You all brought up some very valid points that I hadn't considered. I met "Mr. Source" while I was at a local Starbucks. I initiated a conversation while standing in line with Mr. Source when I noticed his Slurm t-shirt. I didn't intend for the guy to follow me to a table and start yakking his brains out about Futurama, but he just invited himself to join me and I was bored, so I let it ride.

   I apologize for not having the presence of mind to ask him the questions that you folks have asked here. I'm going to try to email "Mr. Source" and ask him where he got his info and how does he, or his source, know the things I was told. And, I will bring up the NDA issue. I'm thinking that just might be the reason why he went on about the details of the movie and wasn't forthcoming with details about his source. I hope it isn't a hoax or just a bunch of unsubstantiated rumors. The details he laid out about "The Eyes Have It" are pretty awesome: The story line; the music (besides Christopher Tyng's usual great stuff); the plot twists concerning Leela & her family, Fry, and Scruffy the Janitor.

   I'll have to get a hold of rumor boy (either in person or via email) and grill him for more information. I really hope that there's at least some validity to what he said.  By the way, is anyone interested in reading the details he did give me in our initial conversation? You guys gotta hear this stuff!

I am rather intrigued by this, regardless if it's a hoax. If you do post the details on PEEL, please put them in spoiler tags.

Do you know who Mr. Source really is and you're concealing his identity or is that the name you made up for him?

mArc is in contact with DXC, but I bet DXC won't reveal anything if they'll highlight it in the Comic-Con panel on Saturday. Mind you I'm not saying this so everybody will spam mArc's inbox with "Z0MG!!1! C0NT4CT DXC 4B0UT T3H 5TH M0VI3!!1!" messages but that we have an admin who has contact with THE reliable source when it comes to Futurama.

   The only name "Mr. Source" gave me was his first name, Charles. Again, I apologize for not being on-the-ball enough, at the time, to be more inquiring. When I get in touch with Charles again, I'll definitely ask more questions.

   By the way, at the risk of sounding like a complete spoot, just what, exactly, will posting the details in spoiler tags do?

If you post a message under a spoiler tag, then anybody (both PEELers and visitors) can reveal your hidden message by highlighting the block your message is incased in.

Yes, spoiler tags would be good. Some of us like our first watching of a new DVD release to be "fresh".

Also, if it turns out your source is a dufus they're won't be anything to forget.

Hmmm, I wonder if he's related to Barbie Q. Sauce?

Great. This better not be the movie where they reveal that Fry and Leela are cousins.

No, Leela will be revealed to be Fry's great (to the power of eight) grand-daughter.  wink

As for a L & A Confidential DVD, I'd buy it.  big grin

Okay you cunts, let's see what you can do now.

Fry did ask Lars & Leela if they were cousins point blank in BBS didn't he? No answer either. Sort of had that Nibbler under the desk thing to it. Hiding in plain site.

That's exactly what I was referencing in my post. I was also referencing a theory made long ago by a crazed PEELer in which the belief was that Fry and Leela were siblings (much like Luke and Leia in Star Wars).

Before "Bender's Big Score", I never considered the possibility that there was any biological relation between the two and just labelled any theories reguarding such a thought as "ridiculous". Ever since I've heard that line, I have begun questioning whether Fry and Leela have a connection beyond romance. In the original script for "Bender's Big Score", Fry wasn't supposed to question any family relationship between Leela and Lars, so I do find it fairly odd that they'd replace it with such a line that really didn't yield much laughs (then again, that movie wasn't very humorous at all).

So far there's just been veiled references to a hypothetical movie and a bit of Bender's Big Score stuff.

In all fairness, I think they just used that line because it's something an everyday person might say, and thus something the audience can relate to him asking, not as a matter of foreshadowing or anything.

that's exactly what I was about to say.  From everything we've heard, even DXC and Matt Groening don't know at this point whether there will be movies after ITWGY, and even if they've been keeping it secret from us for some reason, the plot that your source gave you has 'lousy fanfic idea' written all over it.  Hopefully we'll get the latest news about the likelihood of a 5th movie during the comicon panel today.

I was thinking about that last night after I posted. The characters in both the Simpsons and Futurama have everyday, but unusual names that aren't that popular in society such as Homer, Bart, Selma, Gladys, Leela, Hubert, Hermes, and Munda. Sara is just common dishwater compared to other names.

This plotline sounds like an overly dramatic fanfiction. Maybe your source (or you) should get acquained with Leela's Twin over at the Leela Zone...

  I still haven't been able to get in touch with Charles and get more info out of him about "The Eyes Have It". But, after reading some of the replies here, it does sound a bit like it could just be some over-dramatic fanfic. Still, just on the off chance that he's not pulling my leg, I'm gonna post the whole story line that he gave me, and, just in case it is just a steaming load, I'll post it in spoiler tags. In the meantime, I'm gonna keep looking for this knucklehead.

You're all very paranoid.  Oh noes it's a hoax!  Oh noes, that wasn't mentioned in Leela's Homeworld at all!  Oh noes, writers can't build new story arcs with names like Sara (which very well could be placeholders), oh noes parents can't flip coins to determine eventual outcomes that lead to sexual intercourse and children!

I won't validate krunc's source's suggestion... but I am aware that the Futurama crew have been planning for lots of scenario's, and it's possible such a feature has been discussed and even drafted.  If such a thing exists, it may or may not be revealed at this year's comic con.  Lastly, there are sources out there who happen to not be DXC... or even Mr. Groening...  You wouldn't suggest they're the only two people working on the show, would you?
