Hi, with Disney+ getting ready to launch, I know the the original Gargoyles series will be streaming there... Have you ever thought about doing a pitch for a live action version for the streaming service? I got my wife hooked on the show and even she asked the question... "Why has this never been done as a live action movie/series?" It's amazing how timeless this series is... I own the graphic novels from Slave Labor too and those also feel like watching the show when reading. Thanks for your time! =)
I've been pitching Gargoyles non-stop for over two decades now. Animated. Live Action. More comics. Etc. I'm still talking to people at Disney, but as always, it's not up to me.
If fans want this kind of thing, the answer is pretty simple. BINGE WATCH GARGOYLES OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER on Disney+. #KeepBingingGargoyles
So let's say Gargoyles is brought into live action. What does them changing into stone look like? Is it like a magical fading effect or would it look like a bodily reaction that produces stone around them? I know it's a weird question I just think about these things.
I assume it would look like a biological transformation.
I'd like to say my six year old daughter loves Gargoyles. We have the complete TV series minus the Goliath Chronicals, which I refuse to even touch. That said I do have a few questions for you.
1: How are you doing?
2: Any sign on the horizon of a possibility of a Gargoyles comeback either as a comic or graphic novel?
3: Rumor has it Disney is planning on a live action Gargoyles in the future, do you know anything about it? I think it mentioned someone from GI Joe Rise of Cobra supposedly writing it.
1. Can't complain. (I mean I do complain all the time, but I really shouldn't.) I'm good.
2. Always signs. Nothing real yet. But #KeepBingingGargoyles on Disney+ and who knows?
3. I know a lot about it. And what I know is that nothing is in the works right now.
What are your thoughts on Jordan Peele wanting to do a live-action Gargoyles movie?
I love the idea. He and I exchanged a couple of VERY BRIEF messages about it. But to be clear, it isn't - to my knowledge - happening.
Have you seen Disney's 2017 live-action Beauty & the Beast film? If so, what did you think of Dan Stevens' performance capture work in the role of the Beast? Do you think that kind of performance/mo-cap work could be utilized in depicting Goliath and his clan if Disney were to ever make a live-action film of Gargoyles?
2. I thought he was pretty good.
3. Yes, I think Keith David could create a mo-cap Goliath for live-action that would absolutely kick ass. ABSOLUTELY. KICK. ASS.
If you haven't seen it there was a spoof trailer made as to what could go wrong if the wrong people made a Gargoyles movie;
Thought you might like too see it, assuming no one else has linked you already.
Anyway, keep up the good work, and look forward to all future projects!
Yeah, I'd seen it. Probably not quite as funny for me as for some folks. But thanks.
Hi Greg, I'm brand new here. I read the guidelines and I have a suspicion that this question might get deleted, but a member of s8 posted a comment on my video on YouTube that I should share my Gargoyles Official 2014 Trailer with you. I was a huge fan of the show as a kid and made a fan trailer for people to remember and honor your amazing show. This is not a question, but more so just wanted to share my video with you and thank you for your creativity that has inspired me for many many years.
Thank you for your time and enjoy.
I'd seen this. Someone posted it on twitter. It's very cool. It's a little odd for me seeing Ms. Kreuk and Mr. Neeson as Elisa and Xanatos, but it works well in the trailer. Thanks for sharing!
Also i would like to ask one thing: if you were allowed to pledge for a kickstarter for the gargoyles 3d movie, would you have the orginal voice actors reprising their roles? I love keith david's voice as well as David Warner who played the archmage and jonathan frakes as xanatos.
p.s do you keep in contact with the gargoyles crews and voice actors and other actors you worked with on other shows?
1. Kickstarter aside, if I had another chance to do Gargoyles, I would of course go back to the original cast whenever possible.
2. I'm in contact with many people from the Gargoyles cast and crew. Thom Adcox, for example, is one of my best friends. Same for other series, as well.
I was heard that the new Gargoyles movie was going to be in 2013 by Disney, but it is now 2013 and I do not see or hear any news about the new project. Is it true that there's going to be a new movie?
I have no idea, really. Disney announced a few years ago that they were making a GARGOYLES movie called "Gargoyles" but NOT based on the television show. (Though much of what I read about it seemed to be lifted right out of the show.)
Nothing happened after that. Then they changed writer and announced again. But that was a couple years ago now too.
Checked earlier this summer, and they still seem to be working on this non-Gargoyles Gargoyles movie, but no details. I don't even know if they have a script they like.
Is it true that they are making a Gargoyles movie, only that it's not going to be about the series at all?
I haven't heard anything about it recently, but that was their plan a couple years ago.
