Well I don't know why anyone is bashing the movie, sure I don't want it but think it will match Dreamworks and Pixar's level of quality. As long as the graphics aren't like The Care Bear Movie 2, the animation will be good :) Care Bear Movie 2 was a dsigrace

Neopets' art is poo compared to Dreamworks and Pixar... they're practically two of a kind...

And really, the graphics probably will be passable, it's everything else that won't be... :x

I could be wrong, but I really don't think the Neopets artists will be doing all of the animation. I thought the studios had their own teams that took care of that.

I think that's a complement :) Yar!

Don't get me started on the movie. I'm not happy about it. For starters the press releases have the evil capital P that I thought I killed in 2000.


Waves Hi! Nice to see you post.

You both obviously do have a great sense of humor. Random maybe yes, but intelligent and sometimes sly.

The evil P word. Well, that could be evil, but think of the alternative of doing something like the new WB "extreme" animation style. Now that would be evil.

I guess we'll all just have to wait and see what develops, what happens and hopefully you will have some input into the movie if it does get past the deal stage.

You guys should just start a coup and take the company back over!

Another thing that I thought of....animated movie take much much longer then live action.

I assume that the Neopet movie will be animated (after all, the site is, why wouldn't it be)?

Most animated movies can take upwards of 5 years to make. If it's traditional animation (not CGI) it takes longer. Even the CGI takes a while, if I recall correctly, The Incredibles took about 5 years from start to finish. I wouldn't expect this movie to be out for a couple of years.

I probably won't see it. Not out of a boycott or because I don't like the idea (which I don't, but that's besides the point), but because I see on average about 3 movies in the theaters a year. Since I don't work for a movie theater anymore, I don't get free movies, and it's been about 3 years since I left the movie theater, so I've lost ties, so I don't even get to screen movies anymore ;).

Besides, I have the feeling some heads are going to be rolling over this, judging from Adam's post, so we'll see how far this concept makes it. Just because they plan on a movie, doesn't mean it will happen (and I present "Ender's Game" as my evidence...something that's been "in the works" since I was in middle school, and I'm almost done with my CS degree now).

I WILL personally be one of those freaks who sits there opening night of the movie and record it..... im a super hero after all... sometimes, you have to do bad things to do whats right! Then we all download the movie :) and vwa lah. Everybody has a copy of it. I paid 5 bucks to see it. 50% to the theater, 20% to the actors, 2% to Dohring,..... in the end, they make $1.63 off of it..... eh. Whatever. I just hate the subject. And there is no real way to stop this except to get everybody to download the movie.... but thats not morally right. Thus, i am in shock.


Wow. Wow. You do realize HOW ILLEGAL this is right? I really REALLY hope you're joking around aobut this. Seriously. If you did this, and then got caught, the concequences will be stiff.

Maybe a new neopet will be released for the movie.

HEY I JUST GOT A FAX FROM NEOPETS INC., it is the first line of the movie.

Borovan: Please ignore the banner ads and top ads and side ads and bottom ads and google ads during this film. We are sorry if you don't like them but without them we wouldn't be here right now.



It won't be that way. I actually am used to the ads now so it won't bother me at all. Well, for the few ads that come up on my computer.

Yes, that's what he means. Anytime Neopets appears in any sort of news article, they always call it NeoPets. Which looks supremely stupid. :D

Thanks Adam!

For me this really cements the difference between Neopets, the fun loving site, and Neopets, Inc the money grubbing corporation that is there to exploit children and make money any way they can. One is run by Adam and Donna, one is run by Doug Dohring. Guess which is which.

If anyone is still looking for proof that Adam and Donna are good people that are there trying to hold the creative integrity of the site together and keeping it fun for absolutely everybody and are not in it solely for the money, there it is!

They are the good guys. They are the cow boys with the white hats.

They don't want the banners. They don't want the rushed plots. They don't want a movie that will cement Neopets as a fad instead of building a solid fan base.

Anyhoo, I just want to say regardless of what happens, I know I've been a jerk about some things but I really want to thank Adam and Donna for all the work that they put into making this site and doing with it what they could. Usually, and I know I'm guilty of this, they get blamed first because they are the ones we see. They are the ones that actually have the guts to present themselves to the users while doing their best to make the site the best it can be. Again, I just wanted to thank you guys and tell you that we are behind you no matter what happens.

I'd like a cameo and maybe honourable mention, anywho..

It's a predictable cycle of how all things work, it's been seen before and it's not like any of us could expect that it wouldn't happen this time. One thing I think is fascinating about Neopets is that the brand is built on good intentions. There wasn't much manufactured in the beginning, you can't find a game more innocent than Guess the Card!

I can't really make any huge defining statement about the idea of a movie, I don't know how the company is set up, why it was sold and where to draw the line between the Neopets Team and the other team.

I agree with Coming2atvnearu though, I much prefer the artists, writers, game makers and content people over any of you-know-who's legal team(no hard feelings, kids =) ).

But then again, who does like lawyers anyways?

generally unimpressed. Koku.

I too am of the general opinion that a movie could be great, but the all to real possibility that it will be awful and take time/money/effort away from the site makes it impossible to be optimistic for me. Another is the notion itself. As someone else already mentioned, Neopets has no history to it. There's no common ground or understanding of Neopia for people to work from. Even the most basic of questions haven't been answered and more often than not the answers given contradict one another.

Where did Neopets come from? There's a dusty Neopedia article about Sloth using Neopia as an experimental playground and suddenly neopets manifest themselves out of thin air. Where do faeries come from? Are Neopets born in the traditional sense, or are they created in some machine at the Create-A-Pet Center? If they are born, then are the species really species? Neopets has had Aishas married to Lupes with Zafara children, or something similar. Can they die? I'm not talking about the site where they can only die if you delete your account, but obvisouly the ones without owners can. Does this mean the ones we create are mortal as well, or does our creating them in fact make them immortal? Do humans exist at all? I've not once seen any reference with Neopets official fantasy universe, in all my years of playing, that even acknowledges we exist.

Every other Monster Pet franchise has laid at least that much simple groundwork. Pokemon exist in some alternate version of Earth where they evolved right alongside humans and real animals. Fair enough. Digimon exist in a digital dimension that can be accessed through portals in the "Real" world where they wouldn't normally exist. In Monster Rancher some kid also gets tossed into a bizzaro universe where monsters live. But aside from bits and pieces scattered throughout the site and Neopedia, which they can and do change on whims, there's no concrete explanation of the fantasy world Neopets inhabit. Myself, I'd like to think that I'm not just some omnipotent unseen force in my pets' lives.
