Spawn.com has revealed new details about the upcoming Spawn: Animation project. At the site, users will get a behind-the-scenes, first look at everything related to the show. Here’s a rundown of answers to the most-frequently-asked questions:
No. The new animation is not a continuation of the HBO series.
We have been working on a new story to go along with the new and improved look for a long time to make sure tonally it was something entirely new and edgy.
Todd along with Brian Holguin — the writer of Spawn and KISS: Psycho Circus comic books — have co-written the script.
The animation will be “R” rated.
Todd and TME president Terry Fitzgerald will be Executive Producing the animation. We are also thrilled to have a few of the directors and animators from the original HBO series returning to the animation team as well.
Todd McFarlane Entertainment and some of its executives will provide consulting work on this project.
The biggest difference you will notice is in the visuals. This time we’ll be featuring a combination of 2D/3D characters on 3D backgrounds, as opposed to the HBO series where everything was exclusively 2D with touches of 2D CG.
Yes, we are trying to get Keith David back as the voice of Spawn.
Upon completion of the animation we intend to shop the project around Hollywood and are confident we will find a home on network or cable television for future installments of the animation.
Currently we are planning to release the 70-minute movie direct to DVD via Anchor Bay Entertainment.
The projected DVD release date is early 2006.
