Remember that great trailer Blur did before MI:SE2 was released.. here are pictures of the modelsheets they used, Hirez and in great detail, and size.. amazing.... I love this stuff... I wish there would have been more characters in that trailer.

    Somehow I've managed to stay unaware of that trailer until now. I looked it up, and loved it! How have I not seen this before?

    Thanks for posting those pics, as well as unwittingly making me aware of such a great trailer.

    I added the trailer to my original post in case others have never seen it... I wish Blur would make a MI animated movie like that... I would pay good money to see that...

    Awesome, I haven't seen these big renderings before. VERY nice!

    Hey, wow! Funny, I watched that trailer again just yesterday and thought how awesome it must have been if the whole game looked like this..

    I hadn't either.. I saw them while doing an image search on google and stumbled on the blog of the artist responsible for it...

    I had not previously noticed some of the details before.. Like the Skull on the back of Guybrush's coat.. and I like that you can actually see the velvety texture of the coat.

    Look closely at the feathery bit of LeChuck's hat on the Monkey Island 2 boxart, and you can see that it's a dead crow.

    Also, I would do terrible, terrible things for a Monkey Island movie animated like that trailer.

    Its true it was on the original box art.... BUT many people who played that game probably had the Monkey Mania disc packed with other Lucasarts adventure games.. on that disc the CDs hole made it difficult to see what it was supposed to be.. and it didn't come with the box..

    I embarrassingly had been quite familiar with the box art but had not noticed the croaked crow until only a few years ago when doing some fan art.. I am happy to say I included the crow..

    But do not always in my fan art.

    Yeah that's right I just plugged my own art... LOL

    I did save them on my PC ... Anyone know a place to host them that doesn't resize? .. I'm at work right now... Though.

    When I first saw that trailer, I thought to myself that it'd be incredibly awesome to have a Monkey Island game (Monkey Island 2 especially) with 3D graphics of that quality (they're pretty renderable in real-time, being cartoony and all that). But, sadly, I doubt that this will ever happen...
  • edited April 2012
    I'd prefer animated MI-movies in that style.
  • edited April 2012
    That would be awesome too :)

    deserved to be said again.

    The thing is if they made a movie like that with the expected MI humor.. I really think it would be a big hit, I think it would appeal to non-gamers who would probably NEVER know it was based on a 20 year old PC game... Lucasfilm already has an animation dept.. WHY they have not thought to make this a movie I will never understand.

    There was a Monkey Island movie in production once. But it was cancelled. Since this is Lucasfilm we're talking about, I'm sure it was because of current marketplace realities. :rolleyes:
  • edited April 2012
    Lucasfilm doesn't make much sense for years, so having LucasArts and LucasAnimation as their departments doesn't mean shit, sadly.

    It would be so easy, since the stories are already in place, and would "just" have to be adapted into screenplays (which is probably much easier than coming up with something new). Fans would love it, newcomers couldn't NOT like it... it's sure cash and would make many people happy. But obviously neither money nor success are important to Lucasfilm, which shows in so many of their lazy-ass projects.

    I don't know an image sharing website for that, let alone a specific one... mostly because they're all filtered here.

    Though, You could use Dropbox and put it in your public folder... Which allows you too link it for everyone to download.

    It's hard. Adaptations are not easier than coming up with something new, they're just different, so to speak. I would say that one of the biggest paradoxes of an adaptation is that you have to change something to make it work in the new medium. And this something varies from 'not much' to 'a lot'. Which leads to problems with fans who go on a 'They changed it now it sucks' routine (granted, there are times when changes ARE kind of bad). For example, How to Train Your Dragon is an awesome movie and is an adaptation, but during the course of adapting it like 90% of the original book has been changed (and it started out as a close-to-the-source kind of adaptation).

    A few days ago, I was actually thinking about BttF:The Game-to-animated-movie adaptation and what it would look like. One would think that it'd be easy, BttF:The Game being more of a movie than a game anyway... hell no.

    found this while googling "Blur Studio" with "Monkey Island".
    Blast, LeChuck's model pic is too dark.

    Very cool, though :D
