Futurama Movie Confirmed!!!
When Futurama first came out I’ll admit I didn’t give it the chance it deserved. I quickly labeled it a Simpson’s wannabe (even though it was put together by the same creative team) and unfortunately I was just one of the millions of people who sent it to a far-too-early grave.
When the DVD collections came out my views on the series did a complete 180. Free from commercials the series was a lot easier to digest and I started picking them up as soon as they came out. By the time season four came out on DVD I was a devoted fan, and when my wife and I reached the end of that collection I actually felt a great sadness because I knew I would never again see any new Futurama material. Definitely a first for me with any TV show.
At San Diego’s Comic-Con last week IGN interviewed Billy West (be sure to check out that link, the man has an amazing resume) and he confirmed that a Futurama direct-to-DVD movie has been green lit.
