CNN: How did the plot to this film come together?

Groening: The set of four movies were done by the core writers of "Futurama" headed by David X. Cohen ... [who's been] my partner on "Futurama" from the very beginning. We [planned] these four movies -- one was time travel, next was sword-and-sorcery, third was a space monster movie and the last one is a grand ecological science fiction epic which also has some emotional payoffs for the characters if you've been following the series from the beginning. ...

In a way there was a checklist component to this -- well, let's do this, we haven't done that yet -- and then just great ideas. Ken Keeler, who wrote the script, is very, very smart, and very rarely will concede a factual point, even if it means that we (laughs) postpone getting work done for hours. (laughs) And when you have writers as smart as the "Futurama" writers, you can waste two days on scientific tangents. Listen to Groening talk about the writers' cleverness

Well, I think the commentary tipped me off as to the point of the ending.  Getting floods of letters to pour in to Fox saying "You can't let this end, more please, more!"

Wow, hard to belive but it's not quite as funny when cut down to 6 minutes.

Yeah, I couldn't find the full one.  It's the sparseness that makes it funny, the idea that they are going all the way for the joke.  I remember how hard I laughed during the fantasy sequence.  It MUST be watched in full.

Finally watched the last movie, mixed reaction to it, I liked the story the best out of the 4 movies, but in terms of comedy I thought it was mediocre.  Lots of chuckles but no big laughs for me in this one.

26 new episodes of Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's late, great animated series to air beginning in 2010. The studio cites Futurama's "blockbuster" performance on DVD and in reruns on Comedy Central as the reason for its rebirth.

Before the movies, I would've been all "Woo Hoo!". But those were mostly lame, so now I'm worried about the show being a shadow of its former self. I'll hope for the best, though.

woo hoo
