Movie: Grim Fandango or Monkey Island?

Let's say that in the near future some unknown company got permission from LucasArts to make either a Monkey Island or a Grim Fandango movie, both in 2D... Which one would you prefer?

    Well, I can't make both you know :p

  • I prefer a grim Fandango like movie but what do you mean with a 2D movie exactly?

  • 2D = Traditional animation (Aladdin, The Lion King...)
    3D = Computer generated animation (Toy Story, Shrek...)

  • @Javi-Wan Kenobi said: While I'd love a animated movie on both franchises, if there is a Grim Fandango movie I think it should be a 3D animated, Pixar-style movie.

    In my opinion, a Grim Fandango film should be a Henry Selick-style stop-motion film.

  • I would like to see a hand-drawn animated feature of Grim Fandango, that would be something incredible to look at if its handled correctly. I've already mentioned this on here before, but a movie of Monkey Island WAS planned but it never came to be. The scripts that were used for the feature were used in Pirates of The Caribbean.

    There was an old rumor that Tim Burton was attached to a Grim Fandango film, but it was just a rumor. As much as I would say its a good idea for a stop-motion Grim Fandango, I dont want it. Only because whenever there's something that is stop-motion that is dark and creepy people think its Tim Burton. When in reality its somebody else doing it. Kinda like how people(depending who you know) will mistake a hand-drawn animated feature that isn't Disney as a Disney cartoon. Or in this case a CG cartoon that isn't from Pixar that people think its from Pixar.

    What's so bad about that? People thinking it to be a Tim Burton film wouldn't change the film itself in any way. I mean, people thought that Coraline was a Tim Burton film, but it doesn't change anything from the movie itself.

  • I'm not agaisnt Fandango being done in Stop-motion Tredlow, but you see my point on what I am saying dont you?

    Well, you're saying that you don't want a GF movie to be stop-motion because you don't want people thinking it to be a Tim Burton movie. What I'm saying is that there's nothing wrong with people thinking it's a Tim Burton movie, because as much as they think it is, it's not. And if you don't like people making that mistake, just ignore them, or correct them. Either way, the movie will not change because of people's opinions, so it's not really a good reason to not want a stop-motion GF movie.

    That explains a lot about the Pirates Movies and why a lot of people (myself included) thought they were ripping off Monkey Island.

  • I'd watch a movie based on MI characters, but with a completely new plot.
