I've always had wonderful dreams and longings over the idea of a Monkey Island™ movie (the fact that Pirates of the Caribbean contains pirates and an island and a squigly beard that looks kind of like Le Chucks makes it a poor substitute for the real thing in my mind.)

It wouldn't have to be a Luscasarts/films/whatever production - I mean, just think about it, seriously, if we found a way to harness all the creative bubbling energy that has been spent creating even the shoddiest of the Monkey Island™ fangames (say nothing of the decent ones,) I believe a pretty incredible film could be made.

Better yet, if we could somehow capture and harness the creative energy the has been spent in simply "planning," and announcing on various forums the impending Monkey Island™ fangames that actually never get made - WOW! We'd be unstoppable, that's lightning in a bottle take-over-the-world-type power!

But I digress....

If standing in the shallows waiting for tortoises to gather then tying them all together with the hairs on his back to make a raft and sail away isn't Monkey Island then nothing is.

I know it didn't happen but just the idea.

I'm a great fan of Monkey Island series ... but I really hope that they'll never make a movie about it! :tai:
The video games are just "art", and no movie or cartoon could reach the same perfection...

<div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(Bobbin Threadbare @ Jul 4 2006, 01:42 PM) [snapback]241479[/snapback]</div>Okay, the lucasarts one is obvously related. However, how's the gamespot link related to this topic. I mean, it's about the guy who made the series but he doesn't metion pirates of the carabean anywhere.

...oh wait, there's a second page, part way down. Okay, the genesis of the series has it's roots... Got it.
