Hello everyone, I know this is pretty early to talk about already, but considering HTTYD 2 is already receiving some buzz (which comes after this one) and nobody has mentioned much about this, I thought I'd go ahead and make a thread exclusively for "Peabody and Sherman." I remember watching the original series on "Rocky and Bullwinkle" via DVD. IMO it was my favorite of the shorts. So when I heard there was going to be a movie made of it, I had some doubts about it initially. First off, as we all know from theatrical history, movies based on cartoons tend to underperform, especially if the producers are not the same from the show itself. In the case of Jay Ward cartoons, however, Hollywood has made several stinkers out of them, such as "George of the Jungle," "Dudley Do-Right," and "Rocky and Bullwinkle." Two reasons come to mind as to why these films didn't fare too well: the story and characters weren't strong, which is what made these shows famous, and they were done in live-action. Things done in animated form don't always translate well into real life. Sure, the animation is subpar by today's standards, but as the saying goes, "good writing trumps bad art," and these cartoon shows are good examples of this. A few things have popped up in the last year that have given me some hope about this movie. Thankfully this time around, Hollywood has decided to make this recent adaption animated, which should have been the case with the previous films to begin with. Would have liked to see it traditionally done, but the fact that it's at least animated is great to hear. Also, the director of "Peabody and Sherman" is none other than Rob Minkoff, director of "The Lion King," one of the highest-grossing animated cartoons of all time. As stated in an interview with Minkoff, which can be seen below, http://youtu.be/nWVTm1uRhPI he has seen the series as a kid, which is an added bonus. He also stated that he will try to make it as true to the original as possible. Hopefully, we should be seeing some promos for this soon. This could finally end the cycle of bad adaptions of Jay Ward shows and receive the treatment it deserves. It will also be a good opportunity to rekindle the Rocky and Bullwinkle franchise and to introduce these characters to a new audience. If not, it will be a sad disappointment and will further the ruin of our childhood. So, what are your thoughts on "Peabody and Sherman"? Any new info on the film is greatly appreciated.
