Movie Cancelled [CLOSED]

#1 Posted: 21:15:04 10/04/2010 | Topic Creator
I've sent an email to Daniel Altiere yesterday, one of the script writers of the Spyro movie, about him and his brother not telling us about the cancellation of the movie. It appears that Activision was the one who cancelled the movie, because of them making the franchise go in a different direction.

Here's proof:

So sorry for the let down but we're as disappointed as you are. I'm afraid we're just the writers -- no more than hired hands. We didn't even know the project was cancelled until months after they pulled the plug.

Did you consider writing the gaming company? They're the ones who made the decision to go in a different direction. And if we knew what that direction was we'd share it with you. Again sorry for the disappointment. Wish we had more encouraging news for you.

Thanks for writing!

Best,

The Altiere Bros.

Seems odd to me that Activision could pull the plug on the project, prior information said that the rights had been purchased and not that it was comissioned.

Hopefully, maybe now there will be a good game. I wasn't looking forward to seeing the movie anyway. Though the 'different direction' they're speaking of makes me wonder. What the heck are they going to change now?

Not really, a "new direction" could mean removing Spyro from the market. Highly unlikely, but this message has nothing in it to exclude this possiblity.

That would be assuming they had anything to do with the movie, which given that it was being produced by another company would seem to indicate their involvement would be minimal if at all.

-------------------------

Given the wording of the message, the period Animation Picture Co. owned the right to make a Spyro movie must have expired and Activision did not allow them to purcase an extention.

Yeah, this "new direction" could mean that Activision might have other plans for Spyro, taking away another original idea Mike Graham and Chris Wilson had in store for us in the next game.

Ok, im kinda glad they wont be doing a movie, maybe in the future guys, like spyro may get picked up by another company, but anyways what concerns me the most is where they are taking spyro with this "new direction" so to speak, I hope not another reboot. If a new direction means more effort in the new game then by all means go right on ahead.

None, except from two who previously worked with them, the composers of the LoS trilogy.

Activision is good at keeping things on a low-profile.

Not exactly a fitting end for those looking forward to this movie smilie ... Hmm a new direction huh? I wonder what Activision is planning this time smilie ?

If they were working on a video game for Spyro since the late 09, then we wouldn't get any news whatsoever on that little project. All game developers like to keep things under wraps when it comes to making a new game (comes with the territory I guess). Its smart, that way no one will out maneuver them, but I still wonder how they are going to go through with this?

I still say that Activision has dug themselves a hole that wasn't needed, and I'm curious on they will get themselves out? Continue the LOS universe, re-do ETD, continue from SL, or do something new all together?

Time will tell all things. . .

That seems to be the most likeliest of choices right now smilie . To be honest, I don't see how they can continue with the LOS universe considering that Malefor tried to do the most vile thing a villain can do, destroy the world / universe is pretty hard to top when continuing a game. Also TLOS ended on a happy note, so they can leave that alone for now IMO.

They can buy themselves some time and money if they re-do ETD, and do it right by the way. The game was not finished and it would be some constellation for the old Spyro fans if they did do this. All they really need to do is fix the bugs, make it like it was intended to be, and voila, a 100% completed ETD game smilie .

SL is another loose end that they need to tie up. From what I hear, SL ends on a cliff hanger. Is spending 2.5 + years needed to fill that cliffhanger? Well if they did it for God of War, why not Spyro too? If they want to they can tackle those two games while they give the writers for LOS more time to make something that's actually epic smilie . . . and maybe put in Spyro's old personality into the mix to boot.

All in all, I'm not saying that continuing the LOS universe is a bad move, I'm just saying that there are games in the Spyro line up that needs to be finished or ended first.

Your right Zackeio. It would be hard to top destroying the world, but they could find a way to continue the story. I don't think it would set well with a lot of people [Including me] if they forgot everything introduced in the new games, like Cynder, the Guardians, and everything that happened in those games. I'd rather they not bring back ETD. You can't really recreate classics, anyway. I mean you could, but it's not the same. I just think it's better to leave those games in the past and continue with the TLoS world. What I'd look forward to seeing would be a spunkier Spyro (including more humor and expressions) and a good story of course. I can't see them dropping all of the new characters, either.

I don't know. We'll just have to wait and see.

Drop LOS? Hmm, I think you misunderstood me smilie. I didn't imply that they should completely drop the LOS universe I simply met that they should suspend it for now and finish up ETD and put an ending to SL. These two games are not finished and leaves a cliffhanger to boot, respectfully. I was simply suggesting that since ETD was never truly finished, they can try to actually finish it and then maybe put an ending to SL so that way the Spyro franchise doesn't have any loose ends.

By concentrating on this, it could help them make a better story for the LOS universe (IF they are going to continue it or not). Even if they don't continue the LOS universe, this doesn't mean that the characters go down with it. IF Acitivision is creative enough they can always represent these characters in a different light or story.

For example, instead of Cynder being evil. . . she can be a dragon princess in the land of Avalar, and Gary ( smilie ) and Sparx are some common street urchins looking for some kicks. They some how cross paths and endure a suspenseful yet entertaining adventure trying to find the legendary Rosetta stone, or some nonsense like that smilie . All in all it all depends on how well they can tie in their ideas, and represent them through the use of video game technology.

As for the classics. . . true, one can't recreate the classics. . . only enhance or corrupt them. The classics are, well the classics, a template if you will for future media projects of that particular subject. Depending on what one does with this template is completely up in the air and weather or not it is a success or flop depends on the sales, not so much on the opinions of it.

I'm not sure if Activision actually listens to their fanbase or not, regardless of priority of the project or not, but if they do - then like I said they are in quite a pickle. smilie

Well i think they ought to continue LOS, because it had very good potential. Theres so many ways they could go with that world, remember he's a dragon, and he can be epic or fun, or a combo of both if done right. There's so many worlds that they can add to LOS that could in a way bring back the whole portale thing, just bring the graphics and add some LOS style to it with possilbly some characters from Yotd and ETD, the whole use mana with gems, thats got to go, but the gems could be used to buy stuff like armor. LOS can have some stuff from the classics, there's no reason why they couldnt do something like that. Both fans would be happy, oh and change spyro's attitude alittle bit, and cynders back to the beginning. simple things can be added and removed to make a better game I believe.
