So these were all the concept art drawings I could find of the cancelled MI movie (may you R.I.P.).
PLEASE tell me that I missed some! :P

This movie would've been awesome if it were animated in the same style as these drawings (with some Bill Tiller-esque quality, of course! :P)

So what do we know of the story?
What could the plotline have been, based on these drawings? It's not taken out from any of the games for sure...

  • Yes, there are some more :)

    Have a look on Steve Purcell's blog, in the "Pirates" category... http://spudvisionblog.blogspot.com/search/label/Pirates

    And the penultimate line in Tony Stacchi's portfolio : http://www.stacchi.com/folio/

    Ah, how I wish there was an artbook with all those wonderful drawings...
  • Awesome! It's interesting to see that the human LeChuck idea existed before ToMI.
  • If you want to know the plotline it would have been very similar to Pirates of the Carribean.

    Yeah, I've heard that, but that's just a rumor, no?
    If we compare the concept art drawings to the POTC plotline, there are close to none similarities. (except the skeleton horde and the side-kick monkey)

    I wonder if Tales of Monkey Island has incorporated some ideas from the Monkey Island movie...
  • I guess we'll never know.. :/

    want to know the movie plot/outline/story....
    Watch the second and third PotC movies, the script for the MI movie was interwoven with the two by the script writer (Ted Elliott)
    (At least thats what I've heard on several fora/topics).

    Basicly, Ron Gilbert feels the same way too,

    Yeah, but he feels this way because the first POTC movie basically had the same plot as SoMI; A bunch of ghost pirates kidnaps the governor's daughter, and its up to pirate wannabes to save the day. Also.. The second movie had elements like Davy Jones (who kinda looks like LeChuck), cannibals and a voodoo lady. The resemblance is spooky, and I completely understand his reaction.

    There is no proof that they took the story line from Monkey Island - The Movie (which is a completely different project), and transferred it to the POTC trilogy? That is just a rumor.

    Well, it's a bit more than just a rumour, because the person who told us at WMI had inside knowledge. See also this article.
  • I'm sorry, but if this is the only "proof, I'm not entirely convinced of this.
    Just because he co-wrote on both projects, doesn't mean that the POTC plot = Monkey Island The Movie plot. I'm sure he drew with him some influences here and there, but thats about all we can assume.

    And judging from these drawings, there are plenty of characters and scenarios that differs from the POTC series.
