The studio behind Bounty Hamster is still alive.
And they’re making a movie.
"An action-packed comedy about learning to trust idiots and stealing the Crown Jewels…twice."
This both looks and sounds fantastic. Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, the co-creator of Phineas and Ferb, is co-director on this project (which is how I became aware of it), And what he and the other producers have to say about it make it sound even more intriguing:
Says Marsh, “It’s a compelling story. Just like Phineas & Ferb, its going to work for kids and adults as well, and the more time we spend on the storyboards, the funnier it gets. We’ve already scheduled a long fun time on storyboard, complete with testing. There’s no need to spend 100 million unless your goal is simply to create wild spectacle, or to waste 90 million.”
Says [David] Freedman, “Unstable is a character based film, with acres of action, but we realized if we go CG we had two risky choices; develop with a big studio and risk that it never actually gets made, or go cheap and plastic and disappoint everyone and never get hired again. But with a sharp, emotional, and very funny film with some household names doing voices 2D can still deliver with the warmth of a hug.”
"Unstable" is an action packed heist film, which centers on a police horse framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Says [Gareth] Edwards [the British comedy writer, not the Godzilla director], "I’d like to think of it as Witness meets Oceans 11 bumps into Madagascar. It’s about the power of family, even if that family isn’t related to you. I think everyone has family they chose who can be as special to them as the family they’re given."
Marsh sums up, “There’s a very strong emotional core to Unstable, plus as the title suggests, we get to romp around with crazy characters. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and of course, you’ll sing along. Oh yes. There will be songs! The opportunity to do comedy with Dave and Gareth again was something that I was truly excited about, but it’s the characters they created that really drove me to be involved with this project. They’re all so full, complex and surprising and lend themselves perfectly to the kind of storytelling I enjoy.”
Glad to see independent hand-drawn animation can still thrive. I hope this gets released and gets its name out there (the fact Swampy’s attached should give it some cred, I hope). I’ll be looking forward to this.
What if it bites me and it dies?
that means you’re poisonous. jesus christ, nate, learn to read.
What if it bites itself and I die?
What if it bites me and someone else dies?
That’s correlation, not causation.
what if we bite each other and neither of us die
oh my god
100% sure im ugly as hell and yet I still expect to be in a relationship with a hot person
The fear of trusting people is Pistanthrophobia.
Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.
Got to see the first of the new Clone Wars story arcs. Damn, the ending… :(
