A Samurai Jack movie has been a subject of discussion for years, but now it looks like it’s actually going to happen, sooner rather than later. Find out what changed - and the huge obstacle that may still kill the project.
Well, even if a theatrical big screen Samurai Jack feature film movie, presumably one that might properly conclude Jack’s quest “to return to the past and undo the future that is Aku” will ever finally see the actual light of day one of these days, I would like to see such a Samurai Jack movie.
But I never normally imagine or truly predict that the theatrical big screen Samurai Jack feature film might possibly overtake Disney’s Frozen and/or The Lion King and/or such like to possibly take the title of one of, or if not, the #1 biggest, highest grossing and/or most successful animated film of all time (and possibly to the point of either scaring the likes of Disney and James Cameron enough to start trying to step up their game even more or at least inspire them to do something similar).
We may never know whether or not a Samurai Jack feature film might even become a huge monster hit on the big screen, for it may even be one of modern Hollywood’s greatest risks or so.

TimBoxReloaded Tumblr Post # 1,710:
LeeLee and Dexter has meet the Do-Do [in the first picture] and in the second picture, the Do-Do is carrying LeeLee and Dexter to safety away from the bad guys in Samurai Jack. In the third picture the guy asks if he is Shinichi but the Do-Do replied that he is not.
These are for something called Dexter’s Odyssey, which is my pet project and lifelong dream project and intended masterpiece and exquisite love letter to the animator’s art and its various iterations, Disney and/or Non-Disney as well as my ambitious attempt to turn the 1990s kids cartoon show Dexter’s Laboratory into an dinosaur-infused epic adventure and return the Dexter’s Laboratory characters to their old-gold Genndy Tartakovsky original character designs and animation style, as well as presumably banish all memory of the 2001-2003 seasons of Dexter’s Lab.
In Dexter’s Odyssey, Mandark, a rival neighbor of Dexter’s, have gone mad and evil and powerful like LOTR’s Sauron, and he gets into a fight with Dee Dee’s friend Lee Lee that disrupts Dee Dee’s birthday party before Mandark exiled himself to enemy territory in Astronoma, where he excites a desire for war against the free nations of the world as well as a desire to destroy Dexter’s Lab once and for all and a desire to kidnap Dee Dee and claim her as his by right.
Dexter, accompanied by his sister Dee Dee and her ethnic friends Mee Mee and Lee Lee, journeys across strange, distant, exotic, unknown faraway lands and civilizations as well as beautifully rugged primeval wildernesses of still-living dinosaurs, in order to stop Mandark, and along the way, Dexter must learn to end his feud with Dee Dee, overcome his arrogance and rise to action with Dee Dee, Mee Mee and Lee Lee as well as the free nations against Mandark.
Sorry to repeat this question, but:
Why did they change Disney’s Brother Bear’s aspect ratio from 1.75:1 to 2.35:1 after 24 or 25 minutes?
Well, I was refer to my lifelong dream project (i.e. Dexter’s Odyssey, an ambitious attempt of mine to turn Dexter’s Laboratory into a dinosaur-infused epic adventure saga in which Dexter and Dee Dee teams up with her ethnic friends Mee Mee and Lee Lee on a quest through strange, distant, exotic, unknown faraway lands and primeval, beautifully rugged wildernesses inhabited by still-living dinosaurs in order to stop Mandark, Dexter’s rival neighbor who’s gone mad, evil and powerful from enslaving their neighborhood and the world) as something like “my exquisite love letter to the animator’s art and its many, various iterations, Disney and/or otherwise non-Disney, etc.”, but my mother was annoyed when I used the term “love letter” in front of her presence and thinks I would rather use different terms other than “love letter”.
And so I’m asking you, do you think the term “love letter” is offensive?
A 10-year-old boy in Guizhou, China scored a victory for animation lovers everywhere when he sawed through a construction worker’s safety harness rope, leaving the worker dangling 11 stories above ground. The boy had a perfectly reasonable defense.
And the moral of this story is:
Do not mess with a child obsessed with animated cartoons! [especially if you are an construction worker working on something noisy]
This clip from the Autumn segment from the Samurai Jack episode Four Seasons of Death will show you how to make a potion.
He gave us the wacky misadventures of a boy genius and his ballerina sister…
He gave us the never-ending odyssey of a time-displaced samurai warrior on a quest to return to his own time and place…
He gave us an unlikely fusion of high school life and giant fighting robots and monsters…
And he gave us the tale of a human who wanders into the hidden world of monsters…
And that is why, five to six years from now, and on Genndy Tartakovsky’s 50th birthday on January 17, 2020, I, Timothy McKenzie, will like to pay the most extended and most heartfelt tribute and homage to the man who gave us Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack, Sym-Bionic Titan, and Hotel Transylvania with something called:
THE GENNDY TARTAKOVSKY PROJECT
Go ahead, tough guy— I dare you not to tear up.
This is one of, or if not, the great non-Disney classic(s) of animation history.
Samurai Jack…my kind of guy…and one of, or if not, my biggest and greatest role model(s) ever, especially in terms of being humane!
