>>106058025>the standard approach to Looney Tunes
Well, I just meant the style of the previous movie, not Looney Tunes in general. I wouldn't be surprised if it does something different from the shorts, the concept in itself already is, but even the title "Space Jam 2" is obviously drawing a connection between this one and that one.>>106058122
The major difference to me is that Pokémon has existed in all kinds of forms since the '90s. Games, TCG, manga, anime, etc. I haven't really kept up on that movie, but I don't believe it's based off any one specific thing beyond just the most basic concept of "Pokemon" in general.>Like all their shorts are now
Those were shorts directed by one specific guy about 7 years ago; not the current MO. The upcoming shorts for this year are 2D. And besides, I'm not objecting to the concept of 3D Looney Tunes, as has been done multiple times before, but 3D Space Jam.
I can see WB potentially being tone-deaf enough to not see why fans of Space Jam would be pissed off by 3D IF they did it; I'm just saying I don't see anything indicating it's going to be beyond just "it's [current year] so it's going to suck." And it still could suck; just not necessarily for that reason.
I also remember last year or so there was some Space Jam-esque ad kind of hinting Space Jam 2 might be a thing, and that was 2D as well, but I get that also doesn't say much one way or the other.
