I'll probably give 'em $10, just because I'd like to see how these episodes are gonna be. The acting in the "trailer" was a bit over the top for my tastes.

Didn't bother watching the trailer, 'cause I'm not parting with my money.

Everything looks good except for April. Interesting choice of design, though... 2007, why?

I’ll take a look tomorrow, but it’s good to hear we may have fan-made film and series options after all if this gets funded.

Assumedly this is to be a sequel to the first movies... the fourth one included.

I guess so. And it is the most action-oriented April.

Any concerns about the legitimacy of this project? I saw some concerns voiced on Tumblr but this is hardly the first fan made film...

You do raise a good point, Alessandra. I certainly hope they’ve gotten all the necessary rights, but, knowing how much money they’re asking for from people like us, I wouldn’t doubt that they at least are trying to.

I know in general they're not as protective over their IP as other companies. But I'm wondering if a fan film and Kickstarter like this would raise any issues.

They've definitely secured 0 rights.

I certainly hope they're not as protective as Nintendo is known to be, assuming the concerns are true and they have no explicit permission whatsoever. I never followed it, admittedly, but I know "A Fox in Space" was quite legally controversial for being a fanseries based on Nintendo's StarFox.
