Hey Dreamworks. How are you? Good? Great. That makes me really happy. Can we talk for a second?
You made boss baby into a tv series for Netflix. Fun! It was a cute movie, with a pretty decent story. Now maybe I’m being an obsessive fan here, but you made a movie a couple (almost six) years ago.
“Rise of the Guardians”. And that was pretty awesome too. With beautiful art. And good characters. It inspired me a lot. Not to mention helped me with my fear of the dark, and got me interested in art later on (To be fair I probably should have been over my fear of the dark by that age anyway, but honestly, I was ready to throw my nightlight out I was so confident then).
And I LOVED that movie. I still do. I mean sure, it’s probably forgotten by some people, and it didn’t do great in the box office, but:
It did do better than The Boss Baby. At least rating wise. I can’t really use the box office to back me up since The Boss Baby made roughly (according to my calculations, which are probably incorrect, please correct me if I’m wrong):
While Rise of the Guardians didn’t do quite as well:
But you can’t deny the ratings. People liked this movie!! You still have fans out there!! But we are a dying crowd. Your other shows are fantastic! Voltron, Trollhunters, I love them! And I think people would love a rise of the guardians show as well. Maybe 2D animation? Something simpler?
You could really explore this world more! The movie did have a great ending, but I just feel like there is more to explore! More characters! World building! Backstory for other characters besides Jack! (WHERE IS JAMIES DAD). I probably just sound like another girl still fantasizing over Jack Frost, and you’ll probably brush this off or not even see it. That’s fine. I’m not a fan because I think Jack is hot, I’m a fan because these characters formed my childhood. I just wanted to put this out there.
Theres a new generation of kids out there who can be inspired, just like I was! All because of a TV show about a movie that came out six years ago!! Isn’t that crazy? I know this dumb post on my irrelevant blog won’t do anything to get us a show, but this is something I’ve been thinking about for a while.
This movie has potential to be carried on in a TV show, with plot that couldn’t be carried through in another movie. Sure, you probably wouldn’t be able to get the original voice actors back. There are a lot of other incredibly talented voice actors out there who could carry these roles on fantastically! There are probably other reasons why this movie can’t be made into a tv show. That’s alright. I just wanted to put this out there.
I don’t want to put anyone in an uncomfortable situation, or be rude, or do anything that isn’t positive in this post. I’m not trashing on the Boss Baby! If you (Dreamworks) think it can be a good show, then I have high hopes for you! I’m sure you can make it great! I just don’t think it will get the same attention as other shows, like Voltron or Trollhunters. Like perhaps a rise of the guardians show would??? Maybe I’m insane. Sorry for bugging you all with a dumb post, but I just really love Rise Of The Guardians.
Thank you for reading.
EDIT: I know you need Mr Joyce’s input on this before this goes anywhere. So Mr Joyce, is by some MIRACLE yousee this, I want to to thank you for making my childhood full of wonder. Your stories deserve to be spread to another generation of boys and girls who need it more than ever right now. I know you probably don’t want them spread through a TV series, but I was introduced to these characters stories through the movie, and I think perhaps children could be introduced to them through a fun TV show. I sound insane, and needy, but this movie really does mean a lot to me. By no means do I intend to insult your work by suggesting the beauty of your stories can only be carried onto the next generation through a screen, that is not what I’m saying, I just think a new generation of kids could be shown these characters through it. You’ve done an incredible job. Thank you.
She-Ra looks like a cross between Legend of Korra and Steven Universe. If it can nail the incredible action sequences of the former and the heartbreaking emotional drama of the latter, we may have something special on our hands.
Captain Underpants | I read the books when I was little and honestly, never would have thought I’d someday help make the feature! Both the team at DreamWorks and Mikros were some of the most wonderful people I’ve had the fortune of working with and I feel their upbeat energy and passion for the project are evident in the final film! The movie comes out today!! Please go check it out :) and here are a few paintings I did back when we were figuring out the design of the world.
tfw you made the better movie and you’re kinda mad that the shitty one that was made in the same company as yours got nominated for an oscar and your movie didn’t but you gotta be professional about it
Reminder: the Captain Underpants movie comes out this Friday!
There hasn’t been much advertising for it (which is weird, considering it’s a Dreamworks movie and other DreamWorks movies had a fuckton of promotion) and 20th Century Fox seems to have forgotten about it, so I wanted to get the word out so it doesn’t end up being a bomb and get lost amid the Wonder Woman hype.
Reblog and help spread the word!
