"Fesler" posted a comment for one of the blog entries I made. It was interesting enough to post a reply and see exactly what we have in store for us in our animation future.
Fesler posted a list of upcoming animated movies. To put an interesting twist on it and to piss some people off, let's play CG FILM Word Association. For those of you that have never been to a psychologist. This is where you blab the first thing that comes to your mind when given a name.
UPCOMING CG FILM WORD ASSOCIATION
Foodfight -- Probably will never be finished. If so, will never see a theatrical release.
Surf's Up -- Interesting premise. I'm looking forward to this one.
Valiant -- Didn't do very well in Europe. Will do even worse here in the states.
Chicken Little -- So far, it looks good and could help Disney regain some shine. If it does poorly, look for Disney to freak out and fire more people.
Happily Never After -- Lower quality, not excited about this film.
Delgo -- Read comments for Foodfight.
Water Warriors -- I think Henson was doing this by motion capturing puppets. Stupid way of animating a CG film. Just for that fact, I hope it fails.
Ice Age 2 -- Not sure of the premise for this movie. I'm sure it will do okay. Hopefully the story is better than Robots.
Barnyard -- Stinker. Almost as smelly as a real barnyard.
The Wild -- Lots of technical trouble on this film.
Over the Hedge -- Did they fix the story problems?
Ant Bully -- No comment.
American Dog -- Optimistic.
Where the Wild Things Are -- Dead.
Yankee Irving -- Died along with Christopher Reeves?
Horton -- Not a fan of Dr. Seuss.
Day With Wilbur Robinson -- Originally the project that everyone jumped to when they wanted off of Chicken Little.
Jimmy Neutron 2 -- Please tell me this franchise is dying.
Cars -- I'm sure it will be good.
Spider and the Fly -- Sounds like a good time for a nap.
Flushed Away -- Intersted to see what they do with this.
Gnomeo and Juliett -- Did this die yet?
Bee Movie -- Jerry Seinfeld. It must be good! hah
Igor -- Interesting story. Probably will look like crap and end up as a DTV.
Opus -- Wild Brain. Mixed feelings. Hope it turns out nice.
Crood Awakening -- Sounds funny.
Rapunzel Unbraided -- Directed by a guy that probably hates CG.
Pixar Rat Movie -- Who doesn't love rats? :|
Shrek 3 -- Enough already.
Toy Story 3 -- Ditto. But still intersted to see the fist fight between Pixar and Disney.
Ollie the Otter -- Oh boy. I will be surprised if this gets a theatrical release more than a few theatres.
Kung Fu Panda -- Who wouldn't like an ass kickin Panda?
Puss and Boots -- Best character in Shrek 2.
Ribbit -- Vanguard tries again.
Space Chimps -- Interesting. Probably a flop.
Amarillo Armadillo -- No clue.
That concludes today's word association. Boy, wasn't that fun? :D
