Like everyone else so far, I think a trilogy would be best. In reality I doubt any more than one movie will be made, because I don't see it doing very well at the box office  frown

Another thing I would like to see is a Futurama ride set in outer space. It could be similar to the Hanna Barbera ride at Universal Studios, with moving seats.

I think it could be fun, so long as it was more than just an extended episode, if there were a film I'd like it to answer a few more unanswered questions.

I did not vote, simply because I was ordered to.

I voted trilogy, but I highly doubt Futurama would ever make it to the big screen, much less be a hit.  Hardly anybody knows about it(Stupid FOX...  up yours ) and I honestly have little faith that they'll renew it for a sixth season, though it is possible.  I just think it's unlikely.  Anyway, I know Matt could make a kick-@#$ Futurama movie or trilogy.  Plus then the censors wouldn't be cracking down on them.  Of course, I'm sure they'd aim for a PG-13 rating so the younger people who like it could see the movie.  I don't think they're going for a futuristic "South Park" or "Waking Life".  smile

Make a trilogy of trilogies!

If Matt and David could come up with some good plots, Futurama movies would rule. Hey, it worked for Star Trek, and look where that franchise is today. A series of movies, each with a different take, humor, emotions, developing relations, examining old friendships etc.

And further down the line: "Futurama:TNG", "Futurama: DS9"  and "Futurama:Voy." Err, scratch that last entry. ::Sideshow Bob shudder::

Oh Teral...I worship you, but there is no way in hard-flaming hard-farting Hades there can ever be a Futurama: The Next Generation--not for decades, anyway, like after I'm taking a long dirt-nap. Oh Lord, picture it: Wurmstrom's great-granddaughter starts a delivery business operated by an exiled Jrrr, Fluffer's cyborg niece, and a pizza delivery boy from the 21st century--under the watchful eye of the jarred head of Morgan Proctor. You're making God cry! (And I'm teasing Him!)

At this stage, I would be happy just to have another season or two to wrap up the storylines and provide a real Series Finale.

Of course, I wouldn't kick Futurama movies out of bed, either. Most of us agree a theatrical release would not do as well as we'd like, but straight-to-video would surely do well, yes? (Especially since the DVD/video sets are already selling like monkeycakes--by which I mean your ass!)

Straight-to-vodeo is probably the only viable (read profitable) way to go. I know I'll buy them in a heart beat (and I'd pay the outrageous price for a movie ticket, but other than us hardcore fans noone probably will)

Giving that we probably wont get a decent series finale (unless the "FOX Shared Brain Cell" suddenly jumpstarts) there are some issues that screams for a movie. There's the whole shipper-thingy. A movie focusing on Fry and Bender's friendship, as Fry is about to move in with Leela, and leave Bender. Maybe combined with a Amy/Kif weeding, and the Zapper as self-appointed bestman.

Nah, I'll just stop there. No need to give myself false expectations, because it'll probably never happen.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

The worst thing I could think of would be if a trilogy was written and scripted and the first movie was a flop so FOX cancels the remaining two. That could really fuck up any anticipated revelations, couldn't it, eh? If they get funding then I say make them all at once so the bastards don't have a choice.

Screw Fox. I wouldn't accept money from them at all. I say, wait until either more eps(seas.6) get made or until Greoning can get to another station, then get the funding from there.

Why does a Simpsons movie have to come first? Surely if Futurama doesn't get a 5th production season, then the movie(s) will be started. At that point The Simpsons would be half way into Season 14, and the voice actors are already signed until Season 15, if you get my drift.

There isnt. Its a rumour. There aint one at all in the makings period.

I hate the idea of a movie at all cos it means that that will have to be the end of the show for good.

The Star Wars triology of trilogies rumor is just that, a rumor.  From whatI've been told, what Lucas originally planned for 9 movies he realized he could fit in 6.

I always thought that the 9 were going to be the three original ones, three prequels and then three more set after Endor. Yeah, I really doubt that Georgi will get round to making a third trilogy though anyway.

The ORIGINAL Star Wars trilogy, Back to the Future, Star Treks II, III, IV.  You can't go wrong with a sci-fi trilogy.

Back to the Future's got the best time-travelling movies I've ever seen. I'd say do a trilogy, the last part explaining why Fry really got frozen.

I don't see why a movie would kill the show, South Park wasn't killed by having a movie  smile

It's funny how 96% of the people who voted agree on the same thing, even though there are 10 choices. I hope Matt Groening is reading this.

Maybe it is because the majority of those 10 choices mean the same thing.

    So you include The Salmon of Doubt in your count?
    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Books

    • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
    • Restaurant at the End of the Universe
    • Life, the Universe, and Everything
    • So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
    • Mostly Harmless
    (
    • The Salmon of Doubt - incomplete at the time of Adams's Death)

    There was also the HHGG TV Series (recently released on R1 NTSC DVD, and has been out on NTSC VHS, PAL VHS, and R2 PAL DVD for a while) - 6 parts. And the HHGG Radio Series - 12 parts.

    Hitchhiker's was truly a pioneer for all comedic SF, including our beloved Futurama.

    The unfinished story titled "The Salmon of Doubt" contained in the book with the same title is a Dirk Gently story and not part of The Hitchiker's Guide.

    There is a Hitchiker's story included called "Yound Zaphon Plays It Safe", but that has been previously released.
