Reboot Movie (Three, Actually) In the Works

The 1990's CGI cartoon, Reboot, will be made into THREE MOVIES. Originally created by Vancouver's Mainframe Entertainment, the cartoon centered around the adventures of anthropomorphic security software living in a mainframe computer. Every once in a while a semi-mythical "user" would play a game. A giant purple cube would drop from the sky, and all characters would be scrambled to fighter jets or some other form of battle. (The premise of the cartoon was famously rolled out in the cartoon's intro.) If you haven't seen it, check this out. Five undiscovered writers have been selected to pitch storylines for the film, which will be unveiled Thursday. Once unveiled, anyone can suggest tweaks to the story on a special social networking web site.

Reboot was one of the only cartoons I enjoyed on Saturday mornings in the 90s. I hope they do it justice with the movies, and I'm excited that they're not trying to squeeze everything into one film.

Yay! *giddy smile*

This whole thing stinks. It is not Reboot but rather Reboot "Reinvented", whatever the hell that means. I am sorry but I just want the series to finish the storyline that left us hanging at the end of "My Two Bobs". But in this they are getting all new writers so the humor probably will not be there and then the characters by the looks of it are not even be the same. Just finish the story with the same characters and bring back all of the original talent you can.
