Here he comes to save the day! Mighty Mouse returns!

04.16.2010

With superhero films AND classic animation reboots all the rage in Hollywood, I'm honestly surprised we haven't gotten a MIGHTY MOUSE movie sooner. Executives at Paramount and Nickelodeon Movies must be thinking the same thing as they've plucked the MIGHTY MOUSE movie from their development hell and put it back on the fasttrack. The studio has thrown out any existing scripts (including one from the writers of JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH 3D) and are looking to start fresh with a new writer and director.

While Paramount works with DreamWorks Animation on their films, this animated project will be developed separately (think SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS or JIMMY NEUTRON). And it's unclear whether the studio wants to even make a traditionally animated film. They're currently evaluating whether to do an animated film or something along the lines of UNDERDOG or ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS. (One thing you can bank on is that the film will be in 3D.)

Do you have a preference for how the film would be shot? Do you even care about a MIGHTY MOUSE film? I think there's a way they could do it that would certainly get me interested but I'm expected they probably won't go that route...

GIVE IT TO PIXAR

A cg hybrid would suck worse than UNDERDOG SCOOBY DOO and The CHIPMUNKS combined. P.S. DISNEY/PIXAR should make a DARKWING DUCK MOVIE (suck gas evildoers)

Odds are I won't like this.

umm

I'm all for a Mighty Mouse movie, but would love to see a traditional hand drawn cartoon. No CGI, no 3D, etc. I'll likely not get my wish, but I can always dream...

Cartoons are so much more entertaining than some shitty CGI whore fest.

The bizarre Ralph Bakshi reworking of the original Mighty Mouse concept was played more for the weird Ren & Stimpy-esque crowd - brilliantly disturbed stuff. If they had aspects of that I'd be interested, but yeah, it seems unlikely that's the plan.

Mighty Mouse has to be all CGI because he lives in a world completely inhabited by talking animals, unlike the Chipmunks, Underdog or Marmaduke; where their worlds have both humans and animals. I can't believe I'm waxing logically about a Mighty Mouse movie. I can see this being great if they used any material from the aforementioned 80's show but that will never happen in a million years.
