Less expected was that this film could be something enjoyable. The mix of experience in cartoon projects enjoyed by adults and kids alike gives me hope.
Thurop Van Orman (Adventure Time writer, creator of Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack) will direct the sequel alongside co-director John Rice (King of the Hill, Rick & Morty), with Ice Age scribe Peter Ackerman (also of FXX’s The Americans) writing the script.
The September 20, 2019, release will be just a few months shy of the Angry Birds app’s 10th anniversary.
Well, the bag’s out of the cat—we’ll be producing a Costume Quest series for Amazon. It’s Frederator Studios’ first project with Amazon, and we’re truly happy about it (and doubly happy it’s with such a wonderful property). So many people deserve our thanks, including:
Tim Schafer and Greg Rice from Double Fine Productions, publisher of the Costume Quest video games, along with Tasha Sounart, who originally created the world.
MVP Zac Gorman, who wrote, storyboarded, and designed many of the characters for the pilot. Thanks to Pat McHale for coming on board to direct that initial short. Pre-production artists included Bob Flynn, JoJo Baptista, Aymeric Kevin, Ryan Andrews, Joe McGrory, Mira Lark Crowell, Larry Leichliter, and Wendy Jacobsmeyer.
The production team was made of Sylvia Edwards,Dana Jo Granger,Stephen Worth, Ross Kolde, Ray Valenzuela, and Molly Yahr.
Meredith Layne, C.S.A., cast-directed, and what a cast!: Sinclair Dumont, Aidan Sussman, Issac Ryan Brown, Allie Urrutia, Kevin Michael Richardson, Sam Marin, Rob Paulsen, Frank Welker.
We’ve much appreciation for Digital eMation, Inc., which handled the animation, and Salami Studios (with Thomas J. Maydeck, C.A.S.), the studio which oversaw the post-production. As you’d figure, The Blasting Company delivered a fantastic score.
Zac and Thurop Van Orman performed the work of 1,000 Vikings on their greenlight-getting pitch document.
Hugs to our newest and best friends at Amazon; Tara Sorensen, Melissa Wolfe, and Aaron Davidson.
It’s been a journey, but the writers’ room is staffed (that’s another post), and we’re counting down the days till the Costume Quest premiere in 2018. Thanks, again.
ive been rewatching/watching for the first time the entirety of flapjack and i love that thurop van orman is both flapjack, everything that is pure and good in the world, and gideon, evil little demon child.
also gotta love stan and k’nuckles. crusty old men with their completely non alcoholic beverages. ;)
“Though Derrida addressed the American Philosophical Association on at least one occasion in 1988, and was highly regarded by some contemporary philosophers like Richard Rorty, Alexander Nehamas, and Stanley Cavell, his work has been regarded by other analytic philosophers, such as John Searle and Willard Van Orman Quine, as pseudophilosophy or sophistry.
Some analytic philosophers have in fact claimed, since at least the 1980s, that Derrida’s work is "not philosophy.” One of the main arguments they gave was alleging that Derrida’s influence had not been on US philosophy departments but on literature and other humanities disciplines.“
