Sneak Peak of the Brand New Looney Tunes Cartoons

The Looney Tunes are back in action — no, not that “Back in Action” — in Warner Bros. Animation’s latest series of shorts.

“Looney Tunes Cartoons” became yet another impressive reveal at Annecy this year, as WAG premiered several shorts before other films and in the group’s own presentation. 

The excerpt above is from “Dynamite Dance,” one of the screened shorts, directed by David Gemmill. Gemmill brings experience from Warner rival Disney’s ultra-successful “Mickey Mouse Shorts” as a writer and board artist for the Mickey, Donald and Goofy episode “Flipperboobootosis” (watch here) — a clear influence for this Looney Tunes revival, which also leans heavily on the slapstick comedy of the Tunes’ early days.

While Cartoon Network’s recent “Looney Tunes Show” (2011) received three Emmy nominations, Mickey Mouse Shorts have seven Emmy wins since 2013. Will these cartoons be the modern Looney ticket for WAG?

“Looney Tunes Cartoons” executive producer Pete Browngardt and supervising producer Alex Kirwan gave Annecy guests an inside look into production on Wednesday, adding that each season of the show will feature 1,000 minutes of new animation in short, digestible segments.

DreamWorks/Netflix: Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts Teaser

The Annecy International Animated Film Festival reveals yet another announcement about an upcoming animated series, this time coming to Netflix, by way of DreamWorks TV.

Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts is set in a post apocalyptic world: larger than life animals populate vibrant, overgrown urban landscapes, in a beautiful and deadly world. Kipo is raised underground with the rest of the population, until she leaves to find the surface world, singing, playing guitar, fighting monsters and making friends along the way. 

Fans of other Netflix animated series may recognize the voice of lead character Kipo, as she is voiced by Karen Fukuhara, the actress who plays Glimmer in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.

Radford Sechrist (How To Train Your Dragon 2) is the creator of Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts, and the show is executive produced by him and Bill Wolkoff (Once Upon A Time). The release date of the series has not been announced.
