I wouldn't give up hope just yet. Matt Groening has expressed a will to do it. Where there's a will, there's a way.

The Following Preview has been rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence, language and alien nudity.

FOX's logo and theme music plays only 30th FOX is shown.

We see a blurred image.

Narrator: The Future...We have pondered on what the future will bring.  Now, 20th FOX has brought to you a taste of what the future holds for us.

(Blurres image clears and it is Bender drinking beer and belches fire.)

Narrator: From the creators of the Simpsons, 20th FOX brings to you an animated feature,1000 years in the making.

Professor: Good News everyone, there's news that Earth is about to be destoryed.

Narrator: our world has changed.

Linda: Recapping our top story, Earth doomed today.
Morbo: You puny Earthlings will all die a horrible, slow death.  (laughs and Linda laughs along.)

Narrator: Futurama the movie, featuring Fry...

Fry: Oh boy, we get to fly in the spaceship.

Leela...

Leela: I'm losing control of the ship.
Fry: Are you sure?
Leela: Well the danger alarm is beeping.

and Bender...

Bender: Bite my shiny metal ass!

Futurama the movie, coming soon.

Of course they would if they made a movie.

I'm still not completley sure if Fox would allow them to make a movie. People still like Futurama, and I know lots of people who would go see it, but would it make enough money for fox's standards?

Hey there!

Yesterday I read every single post on these 7 pages.

- First of all: A Futurama movie? Hell, yes!
- But please: no time travels at all. There have been so many time travels in Star Trek (movies and episodes). Futurama is Science Fiction and where would all the funny things (brain slugs, tubes through NNY and so on) be if they would travel back in time? I donīt want to know what Fryīs parents would think of Leela and I also donīt really want to see Fry and Leelaīs childrenīs children or whatever.
- I also would not like to see an AOI because itīs only for fans. "Ordinary" people would not understand this at all. And I donīt always want to know "what if"... I want to see Futurama! Remember? Matt said that Futurama was real :-)
- I liked the idea of Amy being poor, mentioned in this thread
- Like Slashco said (as first one), it should be about Leela as "the other". I love this sentence because you can interprete it in so many ways. In the movie, people should get an idea of what her "duty" might be BUT...
- ...the movie should NOT have a real end (as some of you said). The end of the series was so great: One could see that Leela finally liked Fryīs ambition for her and it was not like "they are married, bang, thatīs it".
- What I like THE MOST in Futurama has to be in a movie and it has to be shown clearly:
On the one hand, the future is so terrible and cruel (suicide booth, cloning, mutants not allowed at surface) but the people living in the future are honest, romantic and full of lovely emotions (hugging in "X-Mas Story", Fry telling Leela his feelings for her, Bender changing his behaviour because of the kids and after he met "god", Leela giving Fry a chance at the end of "Parabox" and so on, I hope you know what I am trying to say). Okay, Futurama is comedy but some of the ideas might come true in the future and i like the idea that itīs the people who can "even out" the cruel life. This evokes hope.
In one of the first episodes, the creators said (DVD audio commentary) that the future had to have both positive and negative aspects in order to be "realistic".
- I would start the movie with Fry getting into the future and meeting the others (rather short and very close to the series) but end the movie before "The devils hands...". The plot? No Mum or Brains again. Keep it "limited" without giant space wars: Leelas duty to marry another lonely cyclops or being with Fry ("A Bicyclops Built for Two" ) or Fry getting Leelaīs attention ("Time Keeps on Slippin" ) was too long for a 22 minutes episode.
- Most of you guys donīt want to have a live-action movie. Okay, animation would be better but there is one thing that makes me belive that real actors could also be great: the fan art by FemJesse:
 http://futurama-madhouse.com.ar/fanart/femjesse/kissthebride.jpg

This picture makes Futurama so real. Look at Leelaīs smile. You canīt show feelings like that with the Futurama drawing style.


Peter Jackson always dreamed of a Lord of the Rings movie.
I do short movies in my free time. If I am a director some day (which I wonīt ever be :-) I will do a Futurama movie, no matter how low-budget it is. I promise :-)

...just a dream...

I'd say welcome to PEEL and give you a link to the FAQ, but it seems you know your way around already.
That's a Helluva first post, and this comes from the guy who lurked for three solid months before he even thought about signing up.

I must agree with a few points already mentioned:
1. Straight-to-DVD is probably the only way a Futurama movie could be released
2. No more time travel.
3. Please, God, no live-action.
4. A Futurama movie should have an all-new original plot instead of just rehashing previous episodes. I don't think an Anthology-of-Interest style movie would be the right way to go.
A lot of people are discovering Futurama for the first time through Adult Swim or the DVD sets. A Futurama movie would be viable, but but not as a theatrical release.

What I think FOX should do is make a Futurama movie, release it at enough movie theaters, but during production claim "If the movie reaches XX million dollars of income - we're bringing back Futurama for atleast one more season".
That basically eliminates all need to spend money for PR, and they are giving the fans a price tag for the return of Futurama to the TV screen. Even if the show on TV would be expensive, the income from the movie would cover for the expenses and more.
After all, if a single Futurama episode costs one million dollars, a movie is basically 3 episodes length, meaning 3 million, add all the production costs, it might get to 6 million. If they put a "price tag" of 40 million they could do major bucks (from the movie alone, not counting the DVD, merchandise, etc.) and get the fans what they wanted. Actually, I'm surprised they didn't do it, seems to me like a buisness venture with very little chance of losing money(6 millions for a movie is practically nothing).

$6 million for a Hollywood movie?  Even a 2D animated movie should cost way more than that, especially with the damn FOX bureaucracy.  I mean, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut cost around 10 mil, and that has intentionally shitty animation and surprisingly little marketing for the theater release.  You just know they wouldn't be able to resist souping up Futurama's animation quality, costing an extra assload of money.

However, if they make it live action or even full-3D, I will personally disembowel whoever is responsible.

Weīre talking about millions as if it was just a word.
I guess we all donīt know anything about making movies of this size. I think that you canīt say how much money a film will cost. There are movies that cost 3 times more than they were supposed to cost and many of these films became a financial desaster.

The animation as you said, is very poor on purpose, but they actually used the same graphics machine that was used in jurrasic park. Probably very expensive. I remember one crew member described it as, "Building a sand castle with a steam shovel".

Fry and Leela have sex for an hour and a half, and the movie is marketed as "Fry Lee and Leela Anderson...The Forbidden Tapes".

The sex or the movie? I'd kill for both. I'd be first in line at the theater (although here first shows aren't till 2). Oh the anticipation! I would love that so much.

And just an idea, it would be cool if they took some of our fan fictions and put them in the movie. I think that'd be awesome. Seeing your own work come to life. But that's just me...

That's called Rosewell That Ends Well Time Keeps on Skipping. Basically Robot_death, they have an episode for both forward time travel and back. So that's out of the picture.

Um, if there was surprisingly little marketing for the South Park movie before the theater release, I want to know what planet you're from. I saw ads for it everywhere before it came out.

I dunno, maybe I just ignored it because I didn't get into South park except in the last couple years.

Two problems with that:
1) I believe that the owners of Futurama are not allowed to read the fan fictions for legal reasons.
2) Most fan fics are poorly written.

True. Very true. But isn't that the point of Fan fics maybe? To try your best to try to make sense of a stroy you're trying to tell. See this is why I figured it wouldn't fly.

No. The point of fan fics seems to be to bore other people to tears with your own (wrong) interpretation of how somebody else's characters might act, if they did what you wanted.

There are about three exceptions to this on PEEL. Three. Out of maybe three million as a conservative estimate.

Edit: The Futurama Movie/Return Commercials thread was waaaay better.

Here's my idea for a trailer:

Narrator: In this Quiet city,

(Screen shows people arguing and shooting laser guns at each other)

Narrator: Something has been woken up,

(Shows people screaming in terror)

Narrator: Something so scary,

(More people screaming)

Narrator: Something Terrifying

(Screen cuts to Zoidberg looking happy)

Zoidberg: Hello friends!

(Cut to inside Planet Express)

Farnsworth: Good News Everyone! Today you'll be making a delivery to Simola 5!

Bender: How is that good news?

Narrator: Join Fry,

Fry: Come again?

Narrator: Leela

Leela: HIIII YAAAH!!!

Narrator: Bender

Bender: Shut the hell up!!

Narrator: And the rest

(Shows Zoidberg)

Zoidberg: (Sad moan)

FUTURAMA: THE MOVIE
   COMING SOON!

Zoidberg: We'll all go then we'll-

(Zoidberg gets cut off)

Zoidberg: (Crying)
