Will the gargoyles in the new movie be computer animated or will anyone act as one.
As of this moment, Touchstone is no longer developing the live action movie.
While perusing my tapes I noticed that Xanatos named his son Alex. Is this suppose to be a tribute to Lex Luthor since Lex=Alex?
Nope. More of a reference to Alexander the Great.
After reading many questions and responses in regards to the show, it seems to me that you loved the show but was dissapointed in that it was cancled due to ratings. You are very consistent in in that it was never about the money (although Disney may have thought otherwise) and that spin-offs and movie ideas to continue the show haven't materialized. My question is simple: Have you ever considered participating in a manga-styled comic to continue the Gargoyle storyline and saga? I know it maybe more complicated than it sounds (to me), but I'm sure you would have more freedom to expand the story line, and maybe more flexible (you wouldn't have to pay for voice overs or animation sequences). I for one, would buy it.
BTW, thanks for posting the Carl Johnson music! I have searched long and hard for it... cheers to such a great site!
You've slightly mischaracterized things... for example, I had left Disney nearly a year before they took the show off ABC.
But cutting to the heart of your question, I'd love to do Gargoyles comics or manga. I nearly did the Marvel Gargoyles comic, before that book was cancelled. No one else has offered.
I didn't post the Carl Johnson music. But I'm glad you like it.
Hi Greg, I am not sure if you or anyone else has noticed this . . . maybe it's just me, but in the episode City of Stone 2, Demona stands by two statues of a man and woman who look VERY similar to Brandon and Margot. Demona then shatters the statues. WERE the statues REALLY Brandon and Margot????
I've SO answered this before. Check the archives.
Okay, enough! :) I've just got to know...Who are Puck's parents then?
Haven't given it any thought at this point.
Puck looks too much like Oberon to not be his child, is it possible Puck is related to Oberon if not his biological son?
I don't see much resemblance, frankly. Which is not to say that they may not be distantly related. But they're definitely NOT father and son, nor do I see a familial relationship playing any role in their dynamic.
I have been looking over Gargoyles fan sites and in the credits for some of the voice actors I have found the following:
Gargoyles: Brothers Betrayed (1998)
Gargoyles: The Force of Goliath (1998)
Gargoyles: The Hunted (1998)
After scanning your FAQs I am unable (or just blind) to find out what these are. Would you be good enough to tell me. Thanks
In the late 90s, Buena Vista Home Entertainment released the first season of Gargoyles on 5 home videos. I'll list the videos with the episodes they presented below:
1. GARGOYLES: The Movie: The Heroes Awaken
"Awakening, Part One"
"Awakening, Part Two"
"Awakening, Part Three"
"Awakening, Part Four"
"Awakening, Part Five"
[Note that this was an edited movie version of our five-part pilot, originally created for a special World Premiere screening in September, 1994.]
2. GARGOYLES: The Hunted
"The Thrill of the Hunt"
3. GARGOYLES: The Force of Goliath
4. GARGOYLES: Deeds of Deception
"Long Way to Morning"
5. GARGOYLES: Brothers Betrayed
"Her Brother's Keeper"
All of these episodes -- UNCUT -- will be available on December 7th, 2004 on DVD. Along with some cool extras.
Okay, so I'm sitting here watching the Halloween Gargoyles Marathon on Toon Disney when City of Stone comes on.
All goes well, until I notice another crazy edit-- the word terrorist.
When the Weird Sisters-as-little-girls are telling Goliath it was good of him to spare the terrorist, and warning him not to be like her, they cut off his response, "I'll never be like this terrorist," to, "I'll never be like this."
Not too bad, really, but they wouldn't let the Weird Sisters say it either. "We were not talking about this--" I dunno. Maybe a first time viewer wouldn't notice anything off... but I did.
Just thought you and the other folks around here might want to know. Toon Disney sure has its issues.
Sigh. Yeah. The notion that a single word becomes problematic, even when used correctly strikes me as an overreaction.
And yet... and yet....
If you put your mindset back to the days immediately following 9/11...
A little extra sensitivity is hard to complain about...
The Weird Sisters - "Avalon" & "City of Stone"
For me, the Sisters orchestrating of Demona and Macbeth's lives has always been about much more than just getting revenge against the Magus, or 'some petty strike on an island' as another fan put it. Certainly revenge was involved as it's in their nature - but had the Sisters not bound Demona and Macbeth, Demona would have died long ago and Xanatos would never have raised Castle Wyvern above the clouds, and the rest just plays out from there. Again the immutable nature of time and fate in the Gargoyles universe is made clear.
I don't think I've seen any comments on this from yourself though, so I am left wondering if no one has caught on to the greater scheme of things here, or maybe I'm just jumping to grand comclusions?
The key, I believe, to understanding the sisters is that they are simultaneously of three minds: those of the Graces, the Furies and the Fates. (And various mythy permutations of each.)
Phoebe represents Grace.
Seline represents Fury.
Luna represents Fate.
But all three are all three.
So cooperating with the Archmage suited their Fury persona directly, but also fit in nicely with the other TWO aspects of their personas.
When Magus gave his magic book to Finila (because he couldn't bring it to Avalon)Hpw the hell did it get to David
Long story. But it involves TimeDancer, Demona, Puck, Owen, Finella, Mary, Brooklyn and Xanatos.
