Looney Tunes to return to the big screen
Hey, if it works for Pixar, right? Warner Brothers have today announced that they plan to showcase the deeply violent endeavours of their most beloved characters, the Looney Toons, in cinemas near us. The adventures of Tweety Bird, Sylvester, Wile E Coyote and more will grace our screens in short films before Warner Bros full features. THUFFERIN THUCKATASH!
Now for the bad news. They’re going to be in 3D. I mean, obviously they are, films no longer counts as a new if they’re not in 3D, but we’re still a bit disappointed. Though, if anything was meant to EYE-POP its way into our hearts its Wile E being decimated by yet another faulty ACME product. So, details? Yeah go on then. The studio has released descriptions of three shorts we can look forward to:
Daffy’s Rhapsody: In the first of the new shorts, a persistent Elmer Fudd chases Daffy Duck (Blanc) on stage during a musical performance. The short features Blanc performing the song “Daffy Duck’s Rhapsody.”
I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat: A classic game of cat and bird transpires in Granny’s apartment as Tweety Bird goes to great lengths to avoid the clutches of his arch-nemesis Sylvester the Cat. The short also features the hit song of the same name, which was performed by Blanc, and sold over three million copies worldwide.
Untitled Coyote & Road Runner: Wile E. Coyote’s epic quest to capture the Road Runner continues in this all-new short. Will the Coyote finally get his paws on his elusive prize?
Excited to see the team in all new adventures? Well, the first film, Daffy’s Rhapsody will be shown in front of Happy Feet 2. So, yeah. We’ll never get to see it.
