They're making straight to dvd movies. The first "Futurama: Bender's Big Score" is about how Planet Express sees a hostile takeover and Bender falls into the hands of criminals who use him to do evil deeds. It's set to come out in the Fall.
There are 2 more movies coming out for 2008. I'm not sure if they plan on making more movies after 3 or if this is an experiment to see if there are enough fans to restore the series on TV; like Family Guy.
I just saw this video on YouTube. It was a trailer shown at comic-con and filmed with somebodies cell phone. It is hilarious. The cast are poking fun at the Fox network for canceling them. Futurama Comic-Con
*IS IN LOVE WITH FUTURAMA ^.^* Aaaah how i do feel proud saying i have seen every single episode a minimum of 5 times.. so much i know most of it off by heart... sad perhaps yes.. lol Doesn't Benders big score come out 27th of November??? 2 weeks right? I cant waiit >< Futurama is heaps better than the simpsons now, because i've seen the simpsons waay too many times and its getting old.. And i HATE the new episodes.. There so bad.. Didn't laugh once (only at that Ned Flanders song "my colorful sweater is blue and brown and orange and red and yellow and purple and black...") Long comment.. sorrys t.t
Futurama is way better than Simpsons. I love Futurama. Going to buy the series set and movie set on dvd someday.
I also loved Tripping the Rift series that was great, you should check it out if you loved Futurama.
I think futurama is much better then the simpsons and family guy. For the last year I find simpsons and family guy are slacking well the new futurama episodes are funnier and seems to be stronger story lines
