What do you think it would be like?

I actually meant the plot, and what kind of movie it would be
like. I think it would channel animated films from the 80's that
were made in support of animated series, such as the animated
Transformers movie. As for the plot, I think it would have many
things in common with the following:

The Transformers: The Movie
G.I. Joe: The Movie
Rainbow Brite And The Star Stealer

All of them are part of their continuities, no matter what; they all
involve cataclysmic threats; and new characters are introduced.
Though, in this case, the end would point out that continuity isn't
exactly a big deal in Homestar Runner, meaning that the film's events
wouldn't be mentioned later on, unlike the above films.

1) There's already a thread just like this. I've seen it, but it's pretty old, and I can't remember where it is.
2) It (the movie, not the thread) would be called "We Jumped the Shark". I really don't think that TBC can create an actual movie based on the Homestar Runner characters. Internet Flash cartoons, yes. Maybe even a long toon. But I don't think a movie would be the best thing for the Homestar Runner universe.
3) And while TBC work on the movie, the website would get neglected, or they would work on the website and have the movie constantly delayed. Or have someone else do the script and work and have us fans simultaneously cry out in outrage.

Wait. Here it is.

Oh. I didn't know there was another topic like this. By the way,
my Homestar movie idea was that there wouldn't be major effects
on the "continuity", meaning no jumping the shark. And it would be
a direct-to-DVD feature.

Also, TBC have taken long breaks from H*R before. It would be
kinda cool if they came back from such a break with a movie for
the store. Maybe.

P.S. Does that mean someone's going to merge this topic into
that other one? Just wondering. I have to follow the rules.

Yeah, you'd probably have to merge topics.

Well, a direct to DVD movie...

I don't know, putting Homestar Runner in the mainstream might not be the best idea. I kinda like the underground, spread by word-of-mouth website.

I actually meant releasing it on the site store. And I have no idea how
to merge topics.

Don't worry. A mod will notice, lock this topic, and move the topic over.

So let me get this straight:
A DVD movie, just released on the Store.

Yep. I figure it would be the best way to do it. We keep the
underground fanbase status that way.
