    Always loved the Looney films, interested in what it might be.

    Slate is actually a pretty funny chick. She was the villain in Alvin and the Chipmunks 3 and voiced the mom in Lorax.

    Good. I love Looney Tunes. Space Jam is probably the only one I'm not too big on. Looney Tunes: Back in Action is one of the most undeserving flops in Hollywood history, I can watch it on loop.

    Never saw Back in Action.

    It would've been nice if they didn't make it CG like Alvin and all those other films Hollywood has done.

    Hopefully a Looney Tunes revival can be as good as the Muppets revival.

    All of these have been 3d 2D like a more fleshed out Roger Rabbit, really doubt they'd stop now.

    Eh, looks no more fleshed out give how cartoony they still make these characters look.

    I had hoped they would go with 2D since they made their new show in 2D, but figured it wouldn't happen given those CGI shorts they sometimes release in theaters in 3D, of course.

    Aladdin was made using what artists call 3d 2d or something like that. Primarily 2d, but with 3d elements if that makes sense. Just check out the trailers for the previous films if needed. Studios don't just randomly change that much, they go with the tried and proven.

    I know some toons are made with a combo of 2D and 3D.

    I just don't see much point in making them 3D. It's not like people (kids) aren't going to see the film because the characters are in 2D. They watch 2D toons on TV all the time.

    Have you ever seen Space Jam OR Back in Action?

    I would also NOT call Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, etc. 3d features just because they used some 3d.

    I already said I never saw Back in Action.

    I never called them 3D films.

    I think you've missed my point. I don't want this...

    And I wouldn't be surprised they'll do it like that.

    You want this.

    CG, but made with 2D sensibility.

    Lmaol. Dude. Just stop. No offense.

    They are not doing that. Obviously. Once again, obviously.

    This is a continuation, CONTINUATION, of the Looney Tunes film franchise. One they have been working on since Space Jam. There were supposed to be other sports looney tunes films as well, NASCAR amongst them but they went with Back in Action which continued with 2d effects with 3d to fleshen them out and stand out more, the computers probably just got more advanced that those 2d images could become more crystal clear and digital. YOU said you saw no "point in making them 3D" after I made mention of Aladdin. Fact is pure 2d died out in the 80s, ever since the 90s practically everything has been 2d with help of the computer to make it more 3d. All the 90s Disney films included.

    And you're bypassing my obvious point by not stopping to check Back in Action. The Looney Tunes brand made one thing clear- they are sticking with the same formula that's worked in the past. And if they wanted to do what you're suggesting? When Back in Action first came out they COULD HAVE easily but DIDN'T.

    All you will see is clearer 2d rendered images, as has been honed since the 90s, and AT MOST like the Coyote short posted above. This isn't a reaction to those films you posted, this franchise existed long before that and more of these films have always been on their mind.

    ADDING. check out the BACK IN ACTION trailer.

    Just like Space Jam and this was AFTER scooby doo and Stuart little. If they wanted to go a different route, they would have.

    Eh, I'll wait for pics and trailers. But, for now since it's Hollywood... I'm expecting something like the recent Alvin, Yogi, etc. films. If it's like that, no surprise here. If they really go with what they did in Space Jam and Back in Action, good.

    I don't see anything saying this is a continuation, reboot, whatever. Just part of their plan to make them more relevant as they've started with those shows and recent TV show.

    I don't need to see Back in Action. That came out in 2003. When was the last time Hollywood has tried to make a film like that and Space Jam? I could see the logic of an executive wanting to make the film like the recent Alvin, which I assume is cheap, thus easy to make profit. But, time will tell what they ultimately decide.

    As someone who ACTUALLY works in Hollywood and knows how executives think and how this franchise has grown one thing remains true to executives - stick to the tried and proven. Anything new or radically different or a change IS what is avoided by executives which is how I know this as a fact. What you're saying is too far of a financial risk for them at this point.

    No one is saying that this is a sequel. Hell, there were never any sequels. Rather a film franchise with many different films in it (theoretically, many false jump starts). There have been hints of another Looney film since Back in action. This? Is official word of it.

    Oh yeah... look at the time between Space Jam and Back in Action... exactly...

    You can think what you want to think, but as someone who has worked alongside studio executives and knows how they think due to having actual experience alongside them? As that guy? I know yogi, smurfs, etc would- at this point- be seen as the risk. These guys don't like to change and when they do, not all that much.

    Your fears are warranted, but absolutely nothing is backing it up other than your own paranoia. Executives remain to tried and proven, if you can count on them for anything- it's specifically that. And? Every time a Looney film has been mentioned (and it's been numerous) its always going the 2D route.

    I don't see how making the film with all out CGI characters is a risk since it's what "kids are into" these days. I assume they're relatively cheap given how quickly they're made and they must make good profit. That's why I wouldn't be surprised if that's what they do. Just the current state of things.

    Ok, but I don't see much point in bringing up the fact that it's an "continuation" or whatever you want to label it, of the franchise.

    Those two were made before Hollywood's love live-action/CGI combos starting with, I guess Garfield if I remember correctly.

    Would really be a risk? It seems to have worked out fine for the other films. I don't expect adults/old fans to be the primary audience if that's what you're saying.

    Yeah, and I'm saying the tried and proven route right now is doing something like Alvin. But, like I said before, I'll just wait and see.

    Lmaol. Relatively cheap. Suuurree... having purely fleshed out yogi bear type versions of the looney tunes characters running all over the screen will cost little to no money at all. No offense, but yeah it obviously would cost a whole lot. A lot more than 2d for certain and a lot more than the films you named which have four characters TOPS on screen. As said the most they would do is like the Road Runner short posted above. Anything much further beyond that would become hardly recognizable in Yogi form (not to mention questioning what that would do to HUMAN Looney cartoon characters!)

    Back in Action as stated was the same time as Scooby, Garfield, and Stuart Little.

    Who ever said adults or older fans would be primary audience? You are and only you. What I'm saying is space Jam was one generation, Back in action was the next generation, this would be the third generation. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out it's about the same time gap in between give or take.

    Tried and proven as to what they have personally done. Not to characters who going the yogi route would stop looking like their characters altogether for the most part. Children know Looney, they don't know Yogi. And if someone older thinks they really do that much.... wow...

    I wish they would make a full blown 2D animated theatrical feature.It's kinda a shame Looney Tunes never got one besides the compilation films.I know it has no chance in hell of happening though.

    They're like the Disney animated universe. The characters have become marketing brands unto themselves. The last time you saw Mickey Donald and Goofy together in a flick was that dtv Musketeers.

    Incredible, if you haven't seen Back in Action strongly suggest it. I liked Space Jam more BUT B.I.A. was completely Looney just in the real world. If I remember correctly, Yossemete Sam even owned Vegas.
