    I remember seeing trailers for this in the theatres but now I see the DVD is coming on Sep 16th. Did this not make it out theatrically? If so, how is it?

    I just came across something about this today, I think it was at SciFi Wire. This movie is hitting dvd on Sept. 16 and they just greenlighted another direct to video film. Both are budgeted at 5 million dollars. There is a theatrical film in the works as well though. It's still in storyboard phase and will come out after the two dvds.

    Geez, I can't believe I remembered all that.

    Anymore news on this DVD. Sept 16 is just around the corner and very little info do I have! This was supposed to come out theatrically at one point was it not? Did they decide to bring it straight to video because of an anticipation of poor box office projections?

    No, this was always a straight-to-video production. They advertised it in theatres as part of their marketing campaign so that it didn't *seem* as if it was a d-t-v release. As noted above, they are making another episode and planning a theatrical venture if these two are successful.

    Resurrecting an old thread, just to note:

    My son desperately wanted this movie last weekend, and I bought it blind for him, neither of us had seen it, etc.

    I have to say, the animation is far better then I expected, and the story line is cute, though definitely geared to the 10-14 year old audience.

    The extra features are plentiful and unique, and the music is really well done.
