Original vs Remake Guybrush Threepwood design

posted by presidentmax on - last edited - Viewed by 2.4K users

Hey, decided to make a comparision of Guybrush's character designs. I kinda get the impression that the new character design for monkey island 2 remake shows signs that they're trying to link it to the curses look.

    I am SO gonna draw gay fanart of Miguel and Tulio now. :D


    And yes, MonkeyMania, I agree: it is a damn shame about Dreamworks 2D. Their 2D films were actually really good! But nowadays we've got this Monsters vs. Aliens and Shrek 5.6 crap that's just painful to watch ...although I hear How to Train your Dragon is really good. Still haven't seen it yet.

    Yes. Yes, it is. Go see it. ;)

    And Monsters vs. Aliens wasn't THAT bad. If you want bad 3D animation, go watch Beowulf - now THAT was totally pointless...

    np: Björk - Wanderlust (Volta)

  • I can assure you, "How to Train your Dragon" is the best Dreamworks film since the first "Shrek". Loved it!

    Completely agree, but I actually think that it may actually be better than "Shrek". A lot of "Shrek"'s jokes and content were parodies or references of many films, music, etc. of the current culture, whereas "How to Train Your Dragon" has basically no references, parodies or in-jokes meaning that it will have more lasting value, while much of "Shrek"'s charm and novelty may wear off as time goes by. However, both movies are excellent!

  • @MonkeyMania said: A Monkey Island movie needs to be done this way. It's a shame Dreamworks 2D Animation was shut down. They would have been perfect for the job.

    Maybe Don Bluth could do it.
    I believe his studio still exists.

    Don Bluth is having trouble funding his own project. He's been trying to make a Dragon's Lair movie for years.

  • @Telltale Games Blog said: "None of the staff working on the Tales of Monkey Island™ series had played, taken any part in development of, or were aware of the Monkey Island™ adventure games from Lucasarts™ during development of the season. Any resemblance between Tales™ Guybrush and previous versions of Guybrush is purely coincidental."

    jeez guys learn how to read a few press releases, all this speculation could have been over with weeks ago

    Since Don is my favorite animator of all time, I'm naturally prejudiced in his favor. Now if he and Steven Spielberg could collaborate on the project again like they did on An American Tail, I could die happy. Steven did want to make a Monkey Island movie years ago, but when he didn't the ideas went into the POTC series. He's a big MI fan so I could see it happening.

    PotC IS Monkey Island

    The Mario Brothers movie would have been awesome had they just changed the names.

  • Don Bluth was my favorite animator. . until the 90s. :(


    Also, I LOVE the Super Mario Bros movie. I know it's a godawful horrible abomination, and yet I still love it. There is no logical explanation for why, I just do. >_
