There’s only once graphic novel I ever read, and that was ElfQuest. But a movie? I’ve been pretty tepid on the idea, mostly because I simply could not imagine anyone doing the lush visuals and kooky plotlines any sort of justice on screen. Someone with total commitment would have to go full Peter Jackson on the material to even begin to hope to pull it off. There’s just no way, right?
Well, apparently Warner Brothers agreed with me and let the rights lapse. Some indie company who are pals of the Pinis (the creators of the series) have scooped them up and are threatening to go forward with blessings.
Which indie company? Oh, only the same ones that brought you the cheesetastic low-budget trailer ElfQuest: A Fan Imagining:
Look, ElfQuest, I love you, but let’s not do this, ok? Because I just don’t think it could possibly end well. Can it?
