    Peele, you magnificent bastard.

    C'mon Disney, I'm sure it won't be worse than your other yearly bombs...

    Why wouldn't Disney want to make a Gargoyles movie, especially with a talent like Peele? I didn't even see Get Out (not my genre, the trailer bored me before it was even released), but I'd have no problem with this happening.

    I'm still irritated that they never released the entire show on DVD.

    ^As the article mentioned if Disney turned down Peele they could be perceived as not wanting to expand their talent pool.

    "Oh. This up and coming director we don't want to work with him"

    They'd rather the project go somewhere else or Peele forget about it.





    The Scottish backstory part would be a bit costly but once we transition to modern day all the live gargoyle scenes would be at night.

    The CGI would be easier to do since it will be in low light scenes.

    Or maybe keep the backstory part to just the beginning of the movie. First 10 minutes.

    A marketing campaign for the movie should be to put gargoyle statues at specific locations in New York. Hype the movie up.

    I would be so ****ing there for a Jordan Peele-directed Gargoyles film but it sounds too good to be true.

    Yeah, I think that is kind of funny myself.
    As for the project, I hope that it happens.

    I don't trust this Disney with this, either. Nor do I trust Disney to let Peele steer his idea of this movie the way he'd want to without interference (see Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles...the DBGT of Gargoyles due to Disney's steamrolling Greg Weisman). Lastly, I don't want another Re:Boot reboot situation. Let something great stay great.

    Disney is bringing all of their animated classics to live action...it is high time Gargoyles gets the proper love it deserves.
