    How cool would it be if Futurama was done as a live-action movie? Who would you cast for the crew and characters?
    My first and obvious choice is Katey Sagal as Leela.

    Really? Nobody has any opinion's on this?
    Do you think Futurama would be a cool live-action movie? I think it would be interesting.

    It wouldn't be as funny because when you do live action viewers like to imply logic. Where as in a cartoon nonsensical works easily.

    Nah, I'd rather not. I find live-action usually works better for "action" oriented toons, but comedy animation like Futurama isn't as well suited for live-action films.

    Now that would be awesome. Have a CGI version of ManBearPig and get Al Gore to guest star too. Excelsior AWAY!!!!

    I dunno about live-action, but I could go for a somewhat realistic CGI show/movie. Keep it a bit unreal and cartoony but give it more detail. At the very least it might be fun for a few scenes of an alternate universe in one of the shows, like when Red Dwarf had that Plasticine reality of the characters, or even when the Simpsons had the CGI Homer fall into the 'real' world.

    Some things get completely lost when translated to the big screen.
    Look at "Thunderbirds", worked great with puppet back in 64 and when they did a live action back in 04, it bombed so bad.

    I think even if it had been made with the puppets the shite-awful kiddie-centric Thunderbirds movie would've still bombed.

    I've noticed that when some of these TV show's have been stretched into an hour and a half movies, it doesn't work.
    Anybody seen Mr. Bean's Holiday? I love Mr. Bean, I even loved his first movie with Peter Mcnickel or however you spell his last name. THAT Mr. Bean movie was awesome! But his last one sucked so hard, so lame, boring, it was the only movie my Dad and I ever walked out of just after 10-15 minutes of it starting.
    I've tried to watch The Simpons movie, but it was just too long and didn't work for me. You can not stretch a 20 minute episode into an hour and a half or two hours and expect it to work.
    So perhaps, it might look cool on screen, I doubt it'll work either. Still, would be interesting to see the characters "live".
