    Now, while this story should be taken with a grain of salt the size of a DeLorean, Ain't It Cool News is reporting that Spielberg is interested in reviving BTTF as an animated feature (seeing as all of the principles want nothing to do with it). It is also mentioned that the film will be like the TV show, which worries me (I don't think the TV show is that good, to put it lightly). So what do you think if this goes through-will it work or be a trainwreck (no pun intended)?

    Trainwreck. Do it right with Fox and Lloyd and a good story or don't do it at all!

    Good news. According to BTTF.com, Bob Gale knows nothing about it.

    Michael J. Fox is not in the greatest of shape. I seriously doubt he'd be able to do another feature film. In any event, there were 3 and that's enough for me. Hollywood needs a good dose of originality, not a sequel mentality.

    I think that animated would be the only way to go for a BTTF sequel. The reason is, I feel that the current trilogy was a perfect arc, with a nicely wrapped finale at the end. If the film is animated, it will soften the impact of being part of the "series", so it won't interrupt that perfect arc. And also, if it was live action, people would expect more of the same (lots of interaction between Marty and Doc), and with Fox's physical condition, that's not really a possibility. If it's animated, people will expect a whole different kind of story.

    Also, if it turns out to suck, an animated film will be easier to disregard.

    If anyone is interested, FOX is currently re-airing the animated series from the early '90s on Saturday Mornings at 8:30AM.
