A return for Futurama?

Recommended Posts

Gods be praised if this happens.


A friend e-mailed me this morning highlighting news at Billy West's forum (from West himself) in response to recent reports at gotfuturama.com claiming Fox were interested in doing new direct to DVD episodes.


Here's what Billy West said:


Well, I spoke to David X.Cohen because we did promos for a new Futurama compilation and he said that they did have talks with the top guys at FOX and they were extremely impressed with the sales of the Futurama DVDs. The idea was to make a Futurama movie right to DVD and then a 2nd and a 3rd. That's what's being discussed. Fox is trying to figure out a budget for the whole project, and it sounded like David X. was very jazzed!


A trilogy of Futurama movies? Oh my... WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!!!

Billy West stated again today at Comic Con they were going to do a direct to dvd movie. :tu


This is great! If it sells well, I hope it becomes a series of movies...


It's funny how when you're at Comic-con, you can only experience a tiny part of it. I didn't even know Billy West was here.

Great link, Glen. The wonderful episode where Fry meets the '80s guy' and has him run Planet Express was on television here early on Sunday morning. I’ve lost count of how many times I have watched the DVDs, but even when I catch a repeat on TV I never find myself tiring of it. I'm not sure Futurama ever had a bad episode...
