This doesn't look that interesting to me, but I'll probably watch the film and maybe an episode or two to see if my opinion changes

Wow...Nick hasn't made an original animated feature since what, Jimmy Neutron? Barnyard?

The animal designs look kinda generic (especially the porcupine who gives me Open Season vibes) and the animation has a slightly outdated quality to it but the movie looks like it could be a winner if it plays its cards right.

(sigh) I was interested until I saw the PG rating...

I will however say that I do hope it's the genuine article. After all, there's a reason why the trope is called "Never Trust a Trailer"...

In any case, as it stands, I think we have another movie that's been given the wrong rating (IMO)...

It has an MPAA rating, so this film must be done or close to done. Wonder why they're waiting until March to release it?

Ain't it a bit early to have a show based on it? I mean this movie could flop hard and then what?

It's a somewhat common practice to develop TV shows based on a movie currently in production. Nickelodeon's done it before with Jimmy Neutron and Barnyard. Disney did it in the past with Hercules, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, and Lilo & Stitch. And DreamWorks have been doing it recently with Turbo, Trolls, and Boss Baby.

If the film flops, they'll either try to make the TV show stand on it's own, or try to get Netflix is pick it up so they can recoup the costs for making the show.

They made Rango in 2011.

I don't think the trailer looks that bad (although I certainly hate that song they used). In fact, I find the concept alone to be interesting, especially for someone that likes amuesment parks. I also think the background designs look stunning.

However, I do have some doubts about this. I agree with others that the character designs look a bit generic. I also don't like the fact that there are talking animals in this, as I don't see an obvious reason for them to be here. Every children's film doesn't need cute, talking animals! Plus, the film itself has gone through some production issues, like firing the director in January of this year...

I'm praying that this will be good, but I'm just not sure.

Exactly. Jimmy Neutron was a hit, but I don't remember Back at the Barnyard being huge. It's a gamble Nickelodeon has apparently decided to take.

And don't forget, Jimmy. Neutron was meant to be a series originally before Nick liked it so much they decided to start it as a movie. So they where already willing to take that chance, Barnyard was mostly just seen as "average" and the series was one long "WTF" moment imo.

Making a gamble that this movie will do well enough that it warrants a series is a big risk for Nick, but I guess with the popularity of their current crop of shows they are feeling a little cocky? I mean the Loud House has been a huge hit (aside from a few bumbs) and they have been milking The Sponge for almost 20 years, I guess they feel it's a chance worth taking?

But turning to the movie itself, it just seems "average" to me, it will prolly come and go, maybe get a low-quality direct-to-dvd sequel. But to be honest, I'm sick of CGI animated movies.

After seeing the entire trailer, it had some amazing effects, but it felt more like a Disney film than any film made by Paramount period.

You gotta copy what makes the money, tho, since disney may or may not end up controlling half the box office.

I find it interesting how Nickelodeon isn't even credited in the trailer.

I see why it doesn’t look like something David Feiss would make; he’s a replacement director. Meaning he’s basically there to finish up someone else’s work, and was probably too late to add his brand of humor. A shame.
