Maybe I am being a bit premature...

While rolling around in bed in a sleepless struggle, I came up with this idea.

How GREAT it would be if as part of the 'Season 7' DVD collection that Futurama included a full length movie based on 'Space Pilot 3000'.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to approach such a project?

Im not sure... its already a pretty satisfying, self contained story.  They would have to change a lot of things, expand on others, and introduce Amy, Hermes and Zoidy early.

Maybe they can spend some time with Phil, Yancy and his Mom and Dad and Michelle in a story that led to him getting the infamous delivery job in the first place?

I'm not sure.  Pretty much everyone in Fry's 20th century life is a deeply horrible person, and most people won't tolerate them in large doses, if the Peel reaction to Cryonic Woman is anything to go by.

Fry is not repeating 'I Hate My Life...' (repeatedly) for no reason.  And the only reason for that was his existence in the 20th Century.

Well there was that scene taken out in Applied Cryogenics where Leela straps him to a machine that shows video footage of his life, they could bring that back and increase the scenes e.g. baby, child, teen, etc.

Dunno about that. Fry's parents are always hilarious, as is Mr. Panucci. Yancy is revealed to have been one of the few people who really cared for Fry, and more Seymour is definitely a good thing. More Michelle though? Yeuch. Unless she's going through that meat shredder you mentioned, no thanks.

You guys realise this would never in a million years happen, right? It'd cost them the budget for about 3 new episodes to do and if they were going to such effort, I'd rather just see 3 new episodes (or a completely original Futurama 'movie').

So kind of a movie based on "what happened before Space Pilot 3000 but wasn't yet shown in other flash-back episodes"?

Naah, don't bother with that.

Not really, more like an extended version of Space Pilot 3000.

Once Fry gets frozen you can focus on where Leela was in a time before Fry was defrosted.

Same for Bender before the met at the suicide booth.
 
Same for the Professor (with/without Hermes, Zoidberg, Amy) after Fry, Leela and Bender were together.

Yer, thats sounds better, it could include how Fry had changed their lives (as he did). Maybe something that involves Nibbler, like an extension on what he did before freezing Fry, or even just a film on how the world would be so different if Fry had never gone to the future (dodging the 'Fry-hole') like a 'It's a Wonderful' type of film.

I would find it interesting where Bender was in a time before him and Fry found themselves standing in line at the Suicide Booth.  A lot of that was somewhat expressed when they were at the bar talking (before Leela chased them away).

Bender: (in a cynical condesending tone) Suicide Booths.
Bender: Nice knowing you Fry, I am going to go kill myself.


Point being there is more to Bender's story here that needs to be told.

Same with Fry.  Like when his mom said in 'Luck of the Fryish.'

Fry's Mom:  (in a cynical condensending tone)  Well your brother may be missing, but his crap isn't

Point being, there is more to Fry's story here that needs to be told.

There's more...But you can continue.

As long as I get to ***t punt her into it myself!  (it feels weird trashing michelle, when my cousin has the same name, and is probably one of the kindest, gentlest people i have ever met.  i've only ever see her lose her temper once, and thats when one of her kids was being unbearable, it was still quite restrained, and she felt awful about it afterwards.)

Well if they ever did this, I think it would be interesting if we got to meet some of Hermes, Amy and Leela's ancestors.   It doesn't have to be too much, just an extremely shrill asian woman on a slot machine, or a vacationing Jamaican family, or a mild mannered sewage worker.

Yeah, Michelle turned out to be not that important...

Fry probably couldn't get New Year's Eve Off...

There's areas you could expand on a little bit but all in all there's just not THAT much to say. Bender's little story about where he worked is enough for the audience to understand. So is what we see of Fry's life in 1999. Sometimes less is more, and explaining further things we already know is not only sort of pointless but actually really annoying. Just look at the Star Wars prequels.

That said, I'm down for more episodes about Fry's life in the 20th century, but they should preserve that for future EPISODES, not just expanding on a story that's already been told.

And Leela,

Did she just sit at a remote desk where defrostees were presented to her...Or were there times where (before and anticipating Fry defrost) saw this idiot standing there with a beer in his hand.

BTW, I don't think Leela liked her job either.

And to exlempify this..Futurama is now being produced in High-Definition.  While I feel it doesn't have the gigantic impact to television viewers when television went from B&W to Color, it DOES make a difference.  That difference will become more apparent as time progresses.

I definitely think there's enough content to make it into a whole movie. If there's any episode that can be turned into a full movie (and done well), it's Space Pilot 3000.

Why would we want to see a longer re-hashed version of something we've all seen like at least 100 times, and if you expect us to pay for it then you're out of your mind.

I know it'll probably never happen, but yeah, what I just said.

I'm with Danny on this one. If they're going to put the money into a new movie, why would it be an expanded version of the pilot? Not that I wouldn't mind seeing flashback scenes like people are describing, but it would be way more interesting if they were set within the context of a new plotline.

True, the last thing I would want to see is a 2-hour movie version of one of those boring sitcom retrospective clip shows, where they try to fit in everything they feel interesting and ironic up to now.

Meh, I'll double post...

This gets me every time:

Fry: See you in a thousand years!

He starts to walk out but hesitates. He walks back and changes the freeze time to five minutes.

Fry: You owe me one.

Scene: New New York City Street. Fry runs out of the building and looks in awe at the sights around him.

If this movie were to be made, it'd be great to have Stephen Hawking get an important role since he's known to frequent Panucci's Pizza. Fry's dad is a not-so-horrible character; him and/or Seymour would surely add some emotion to the movie. I'd also like to see more of Nibbler and his key role in the overall story of the show.

I have decided to not post it because it includes many scenes of nudity and it says the N word 23 times.
