I have to imagine either Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom or Avatar 2 will move. Anyone who knows anything about Illumination films knows Universal will take the marketing campaign up to eleven (with Nintendo also joining in, because they have a stake in this too; I wouldn't be surprised if a good part of the budget, potentially a quarter, goes to marketing). And it will be on a scale that not even Pokemon Detective Pikachu (which WB never really put much effort into promoting, along with nearly all their 2019 slate) and Sonic the Hedgehog could match.

You mean Peach.
TBF European-Latino is still considered white in most circles.

The cast full of stars aren't the big red flag for me, it's the fact that Illumination is doing it. The only reason why I'm not 100% hopeless on this is because Sony gave us The Emoji Movie, and later gave us Spider-Man Into The Spider-verse. This proved that the problem was never lack of talent, but management. Will Illumination have their Phil Lord and Chris Miller to change things? It would probably be a miracle, but I want that.

Also, one interesting thought I found the video is how the YouTuber said that if he had to choose one team to really be able to do justice to Mario and rise to all the huge challenges of adapting the character and its world, it would be the Termite Terrace team responsible for the classic Looney Tunes shorts. The blank slate of Mario as a character makes him and his world perhaps better suited to the fun, creative and playful animation and comedy of those classics. But everyone is long dead at this point.
You do realize somebody liking something doesn't make it good, right?
My favorite video on the film:

@ matbezlima:

To a certain degree, DIC gave them the Warner Bros. kind of treatment when they made The Super Mario Bros. Super Show. Now, Nintendo wasn’t (and technically, still isn’t) crazy about the kind of show DIC was going to do, but still.

Warner Bros cartoons don't involve error-ridden animation, misspellings, bad lip-syncing, storyboard errors (remember when King Koopa threw a Bomb-Omb and he called it a "magic potion"?), and characters with the wrong voice actors.

I'm currently watching Alex Bale's video about Goofy Goober, and it definitely goes into strange places, but it's quite interesting to watch.
I'm currently watching the livestream for DC Kids Fandome on YouTube. Batwheels comes out next year, and apparently, Batman: Caped Crusader and My Adventures With Superman come out in 2023. There's also a scene from DC Superhero Girls 2019 of Diana asking Barbara to not be friends with Harleen, and we see the Joker. Hopefully, there's an article that talks more about this.



The winner of this matchup is Mickey's Tale Of Two Witches, which got 4 votes. The Book Of Life got 3 votes. Now we move to round 4, the final round. The matchup is between Scooby Doo On Zombie Island and Mickey's Tale Of Two Witche
