New Futurama Movie! Woot!

Futurama coverThe next Futurama movie in the series of four straight to DVD flicks is set to be released June 24th and will be called Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs.

There isn’t a whole lot of info on the plot yet, which is fine with me I would rather wait to find out when it is released. All I have to go on is this synopsis:

“the most tentacle-packed Futurama epic, space itself rips open, revealing a gateway to another universe. What lies beyond is a mix of horror and love as the Planet Express crew encounters a repulsive, planet-sized monster with romantic intentions. – http://www.animationmagazine.net/article/8040

The cover art has me very excited because it looks very old time science fictiony, I’ve always had a soft spot for the old Forbidden Planet like cover art.

Also available online are the titles for the final two DVDs, Bender’s Game and Into the Wild Green Yonder. I’m especially interested in Bender’s Game because I am currently rereading Orson Scott Cards Ender’s Game, which is probably my favourite science fiction story of all time.

  1. Agreed about the cover art – it looks awesome. I wonder what Fry is running from?

  2. Fry is running from Yivo (the sexual ET with tentacles from the other universe!)
