Hopefully, if Space Jam: A New Legacy does well at the box office and on HBO Max, I would love to see some more Looney Tunes features for the big screen. What are your ideas?

I have two ideas:

A live-action/CG animated movie centered on the LT character, the Tasmanian Devil (Taz for short), running amok and causing havoc/mischief throughout America (and possibly the world), and two zookeepers trying to catch him, despite getting foiled by Taz's cleverness. Elmer Fudd, Daffy Duck, a (possibly) talking Wile E. Coyote, and Yosemite Sam appear as well.

A live-action/CG animated movie centered on Daffy Duck portraying his Duck Dodgers character, and set in the "24 1/2th Century". Here, Duck Dodgers must save the Earth and the entire universe from an evil race of aliens and their queen, and they are not from Mars. Porky Pig (playing Dodgers' sidekick aka the "Eager Young Space Cadet"), Bugs Bunny (whom Dodgers must team up with), a reformed Marvin the Martian (who would end up betraying our heroes, revealing that he and Mars are working for the film's alien menace), and his dog K-9 appear as well. In the movie's depiction of the "24 1/2th Century", the Earth has advanced very far in technology, city skyscrapers have become taller, and aliens coexist with humans.

Both movies have the Acme Corporation present in their universes.

A Bugs/Lola romantic comedy.

This is my dream LT movie.

I have another one!:

A live-action/CG animated film centered on Speedy Gonzales. It would be a Kangaroo Jack-styled film (minus some of the adult humor), where two men must travel to Mexico and hunt for Speedy, who has a high bounty placed on him. Yosemite Sam, Sylvester, Wile E. Coyote, Daffy Duck, Nasty Canasta and Slowpoke Rodriguez appear in the movie as well. The two men hunting Speedy in the film would end up getting tormented by the mouse in one scene, and one of the men also gets a case of Montezuma's Revenge!

Reviving this thread

Putting the Looney Tunes, usually to the 6-7 minute short format into a 90 minute can have mixed results. This comes down to what the creatives want and what the studio executives want. Both Space Jam movies are judged by their paint by numbers three act narratives, commercialism/product placement, and hybrid format (96 Space Jam is an exception since it was 8 years after Roger Rabbit). And there is not much full focus of the Looney Tunes. Well, Back In Action and Space Jam have them as a focal point. Another thing is the characterization of the Looney Tunes. I don’t see them as family, they would be out arguing/fighting each other, and ain’t they stinkers. Round up every one of them together and it is the fight of the century.

Now, it comes down to this question. What is your idea for a fully animated Looney Tunes theatrical film?

The rules. No traditional three act narrative. It can follow a non-linear narrative or a Pulp Fiction style of narrative where all the Tunes have their own subplots but they are all connected together in a grand story. Or something as crazy like It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World where you have all the Looney Tunes star and cameo in this Wacky Races/Great Race style of epic comedy.

Or, it can be a sketch comedy film. An anthology of segments or shorts like the Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie or Daffy Duck’s Quackbusters with bridging segments inbetween to give it a narrative or overall theme. Since the new Looney Tunes Cartoons series is out, I can see a format like that happening.

Finally, have every Looney Tune in starring roles, supporting roles, and in cameos. Gather them up together, but not all are friendly and family. And you are free to create new Tune pairings.

So what do you have?

The only thing I can think of right now is LT retellings of classic stories, similar to Mickey's Christmas Carol or Muppet Treasure Island, but that's not particularly creative...

I speculate this third pandemic winter could end up being it's very last one, ever (we don't need to have too many).
Went to TGI Friday's for my birthday yesterday. Had a great time there despite the chilly weather in Leicester Square.
