This is going to be an actual real life thing.
How could we as a people allow this to happen?
What is wrong with us?
This is like the animation equivilent of finding out they're bringing back Firefly, but they're knocking Whedon off the production staff and putting on the guys who made Date Movie.
 
I swear, if there is one Fred Flintstone fart joke, I will shoot my television Elvis Presley style.


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Because money.

And yes, this will be an abomination, I'm sure.
Probably not a Goat, either.

So will they look like this? Or like the originals?

EDIT: Also this is funny but true.

What do you think would actually turn out to be worse, this or that one movie?

Dang.

I heard about this before, but I was like: "That's too stupid, there's no way that can possibly be real."


I guess the world is a worse place than I thought it was.
Not a winner anymore.
