Avatar is on netflix now. Have you rewatched it yet? It is still a classic and it's shadow still looms large on most of western animation, as you can clearly see it's influence on stuff from Voltron to She-Ra.
Also, RIP /a/vatar. It died years before plus4chan proper.
>>423410 Yeah its been coming up alot, just heard it talked about on a podcast.
How bullshit the final battle of Airbender ended up being was a warning to how shit and badly written Korra would be.
Not to mention those terrible comics that were released, both Airbender & Korra. Imagine having to make Firelord Sozin a homophobe that "made the tolerated practice of homosexuality in the Fire Nation" illegal because somehow being an imperialist conqueror wasn't bad enough, which is what Avatar Korra takes as proof that he is the worst guy ever.
I check this site from time to time. Preservation, restoring, and digitizing old cartoons is really hard https://cartoonresearch.com/index.php/from-best-to-worst-working-with-the-materials-that-exist-or-you-have-of-classic-animated-films/
Have anyone seen this before? Found some sources about it from @Lukkubus
Redesign after @bam_animation amazing character design video trying to get that clear silhouette and trying out a more consistent shape motif and gotta say I'm loving her more. . . . #oc #ocdrawing #pirate #digitalart #artistsoninstagram #characterdesign #characterconcept #bamanimation #redraw
>>423631 It has fins. She has hair like an octopus, fins on her tail like a fish, but has legs and arms unlike either of those. Usually an antropomorph has characteristics of one animal, this one has multiple different phylum, let alone species, amalgamated into one. She's basically a chimera.
Also the design is too busy, too detailed to be usable for animation.
Wolfwalkers, the wolfaboo movie from Tomm Moore is still not dead, will still come out...... eventually: https://www.animationmagazine.net/features/annecy-tomm-moore-reveals-inspirations-behind-cartoon-saloons-wolfwalkers/
>>423761 Beavis & Butthead already had a new season in 2011, and it was GLORIOUS; they wanted to make even more but MTV was too committed to teen girl shows (which got criticized in said season of B&B). Comedy Central mentioned that they'd broadcast new episodes of the show even back then. I guess Mike Judge was too busy with other commitments to have it go ahead, until now.
>>423835 (Replying to me) Haven't touched that site in years. She's basically +4's flavor of the year, now that you mention it. Those threads were rare as fuck on /co/ but existed. Casey from Bounty Hamster.
>>423839 Well no, like all things in Star Wars there's extensive descriptions about people, things or places revealed in media outside of the movies themselves for the large fanbase of nerds.
Even in RotJ it was never described as a sandworm, it was a weird pit monster deep in the deserts that digests people for "a thousand years" that Jabba uses as an eccentric method of disposing of his enemies since it never moves and he can fly his barge out to it.
>>423956 Several months old type of ancient. Was posted with a followup that's it's a friendly jab and nothing more. Because context is gay, this image is /co/nstantly used as "proof" that SATINA'S CREATOR HATES VIVZIE FUCKING BTFO'D 4EVER HOW WILL SHE EVER RECOVER
>>423966 It's a WEEKLY series, so yeah, the art isn't top notch. But the writing can be hilarious, it's like the huge summer capeshit crossover events but without the editorial mandates. They are free to come up with the most outrageous scenes possible, as long as they don't conflict with the games.
>>423979 Just watched Bring Your Demon to Work Day Not going to lie I wasn't expecting much but it was great. Some sections of animation, art-style and Dan's voice in particular were gems. Would recommend. I was preparing for a shitty cop-out no-explanation ending as many cartoons do, which fortunately was averted.
>>424142 Well, TECHNICALLY it is still here. The Tangled show had good writing and good animation. So what if it was tool assisted? So they cheated in a few places to make it faster and cheaper, so what? Let's not forget animu, there is at least 1 good (see: well-written) show each year. And the ginormous pile of independent shit released online.
>>424141 Don has been basically doing NOTHING since Titan AE. All he did was that Dragon's Lair kickstarter that to me, was nothing more but a scam. I do not believe the man who was a legend could not have gotten any studio deals anywhere outside Disney? Traditional 2D cartoons are still made every damn year. He could have been doing them if he really wanted to. I saw his cringy "give me money for a product I made decades ago and I don't even own so I can release it again" video when he was on Nostalgia Critic and I frankly lost a lot of respect for the man. And he has looked like a walking skeleton for at least 6 years now. I expected him to keel over the same year I saw the video, if he has not yet kicked the bucket back then, then I don't think he will now.
>>424187 I've been following Don for many years, being a fan of his, and pretty much everything you wrote is based on misinformation. Don chose to retire after making movies non-stop for 20 years (good AND bad ones), and taught animation mostly. Is that a crime? Is he a bad man for it? Should we lynch him?
He decided to make a Dragon's Lair movie because he still owns the rights the the IP, and it is still something people know (brand recognition). There is no way to finance a full length high quality animated film in the US without cutting many costs (limited animation like most anime) and asking for several million dollars. So he made it clear the money goes to hiring a writer, and producing a teaser trailer for investors. He NEVER said he will make a full movie with less than a million dollars he got. How exactly did he "scam" anyone?
>>424246 Realistically they would both be skeletons. It's fun to debate how realistic you should treat cartoons and comics. I used to have a problem with it ("yeah, [ridiculous premise] exists and they can fly but shapeshifting? TOO FAR!")
For some reason I'm only now watching south park beyond season 17 It's a weird shift to see it having plotlines stretching over many episodes becoming the norm rather than a rare exception, but they've done it well.
>>424332 I thought it was obvious. No artist wants to work on the same thing for decades. I mean, unless you are the general idea man, and other people do the hard parts, sure, you can remain engaged. But if you actually do most of the work you WILL get sick of your own creation. At least that was the case for every single game developer ever. That is mostly why original creators abandon IPs: it's NOT because they ran out of ideas, they were just tired for a lifetime.
I knew Mordecai was a self-insert but I thought the voice and some mannerisms were partly an act. It's literally just Quintel's talking voice. Like how Matt and Trey were confused when they thought normal British accents in Monty Python were a joke. From the commentary: >"Mordecai is definitely... pretty much me in college. Almost exactly, except not a bird."
I think it's pretty neat that The Boondocks occasionally has european american characters played by african american actors. its kind of like a scottish james bond or a mexican australian wallaby, it's not like there wasn't availability or social pressures, it seems they just said 'fuck it, its funny'. and they're white so no risk of Apu drama
Well, the live action Rescue Rangers project has been resurrected once again, this time it will unfortunately live: https://discussingfilm.net/2020/11/17/larry-fong-joins-disneys-live-action-chip-n-dale-rescue-rangers-film-exclusive/
>>424700 Why did that somehow become an actual thing in modern media? Replacing redhead characters SPECIFICALLY with black people, it happened enough times to be more than just a passing joke. As if gingers don't have it bad enough with all the harsh mockery and other shit they already face.
This isn't exactly news, but anyone remembers that Oban Star Racers's creator was working on 2 Queens, an adult animated piece of historical fiction? WELL, I checked his Twitter for unrelated reasons, and that show is very much still referenced in words and images. So, 2 Queens is in Development Hell, but not cancelled.
>>436012 In movies, it's rare to find good ginger actors so they often get replaced. But there's no excuse when it's a cartoon - especially since Invincible has a bunch of black characters already (will be hilarious if they make Bulletproof a ginger instead).
>Invincible is a fucking garbage series either way. Correction: everything Kirkman writes is garbage. Invincible was the last trash and it often satirizes the rest of the genre.
On /co/ prime there was a low quality thread with an OP saying they couldn't wait until the scene where Invincible gets raped by that chick from his species. Pretty doubtful the animation will get that far into the story honestly.
>>436324 Care to share why you think the comic is garbage? The plot is largely a satirization of superhero comics with the main characters family drama thrown in next to it, there's nothing really wrong with it.
>>436371 Agreed, that movie was strangely fun as long as you didn't expect it to be like the games. It could've been much better too but it was tied up in a development hell WHILE BEING MADE; at one point the crew started to ignore the script and just improvise things because it was being rewritten almost daily. It turned out fantastic if you keep that in mind.
>>436326 Not the other anon, but "The plot is largely a satirization of superhero comics with the main characters family drama thrown in next to it" as someone who has never really paid attention to it, that description would keep me away from it. Family drama has been used way too much in "adult" "comedy" for it to be anything other than obnoxious, so I wouldn't be surprised if this is what he's talking about, but that's just my two cents.
Why do cartoons keep reusing main actors for all the additional actors? Like seriously, just pay an animator or writer $100 for a cameo if you need a random persons voice, instead of a main VA putting on a poor fake voice that's obviously still them.
>>436597 People say to me that a person being a company is Impossible and I'm fucking retarded but I don't care, I'm rich. I'm having a plastic surgeon install workstations, office blocks and co-workers on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me "Amazon" and respect my right to steal profits from above and profit needlessly.
>>436672 Didn't read, but is this just another "Suzy and Johnny" obvious satire that /pol/-immigrants took seriously? https://web.archive.org/web/20201129104137/https://cynicnomore.com/2016/04/13/cartoon-network-to-reboot-johnny-bravo-in-2017/
>>436894 Did the writer forget Mags was Jewish or was this whole New Mutant World Order spiel written with that character trait in mind? Because it really couldn't be playing into the stereotype any harder.
>>436896 Magneto was always written as "my people are superior", they are just pushing it into overdrive with the x-men running their own island country. They are also pushing for economical superiority with their magical healing seed that cures all ails.
>>436901 Oh I know Magneto has always been a 'racist' terrorist cunt seeing as he's the one that invented the completely bullshit term "Homo Superior" in the first place but its just the wording in those word bubbles specifically. It could be a greentext straight outta /pol/, if his hands weren't currently occupied it seems like he should be rubbing them together while saying it.
>>436902 IIRC it's a straight quote from the comic, no editing whatsoever. I don't remember the context but it was not that different than what the screencap implies - Mags was talking to either Reed or Cap America about how their mutant country is taking the lead over everything else.
There are other /pol/ parallels too. The mutant island is implied to be turning into a left wing utopia where nobody has to do shit and they are falling into complete decadence. It is implied this is something specifically implanted in them by their enemies to make them weaker, with the hint being "Onslaught".
