I'm not sure how to feel.
but then I read that Mike Scully is going to be involved and it has the original voice cast.... so yeah maybe it'll be alright. I don't expect anything spectacular but as the writer of that article said the formula does lend it's self well to the animated format in theory.
but I dunno, that film carries alot of sentimental weight for a lot of people, I don't think anyone really NEEDS an animated series
how does the man who presided over probably the worst decline any TV show has ever had (showrunner, The Simpsons, 1997-2001) also write something like Lisa on Ice?
Totally misses the point of the appeal of the film (ie. the mundane, dated atmosphere of the town and everybody in it).
But then again I doubt this is aimed at people in their 20s who worshipped the film when it came out. Still, it's nauseating.
