The ever lovable fairies (ahem...cough cough...) Cosmo & Wanda and there boy (insert pedo-bear joke) will be returning to television in a Upcoming live action movie direct for TV. It's kinda sad that I am actually excited to see this. Yes the idea is already giving some of you that disturbing cold chill down your spin when you see or hear something cheesy ( you know what I'm taking about). However, from experience these type of direct to TV movies are usually made for fun and for children and like Ben 10 a while back this should be interesting. click the jump to see a youtube clip.
the movie stars Jason Alexander (famous for Duck man), Drake Bell ( from that drake and josh children's show a few years back) and Cheryl Hines. At first I thought it was going to be one of those Shitty Remakes involving live action humans with cgi cartoon characters (like the smurfs or rocky and Bullwinkle) but judging by this pic it looks like the voice of Duckman is going to be in costume .which explains why they didn't use the original voices...though I dunno why they didn't use the original voice of Cosmo to play Cosmo. however there is a mix of cgi and live action fairies, the cgi are the fairy form and this is there live actiona nd teh original voices are the fairies and by looking at the clip below it looks as though the original voice of cosmo is playing the father (who he was also the voice of ).
The plot is this (taken from wikipedia):
"Thirteen years have gone by since Timmy Turner (Drake Bell) met his fairy godparents, Cosmo (Jason Alexander) and Wanda (Cheryl Hines), but nothing has changed for Timmy except for his physical age now being 23. He still lives at home with his parents, attends Mr. Crocker's fifth grade class, and rides a tiny children's bicycle to school. Timmy's arrested development stems from his desire to keep his fairies for as long as possible. "Da Rules" state that every child must eventually give up his or her Fairy Godparents when they become an adult, but Timmy has found a loophole around this rule by acting like a child. However, when Tootie (Daniella Monet), a dorky girl who's always had a crush on Timmy, returns to town as a beautiful and smart woman, Timmy finds himself having very adult feelings for her, and must come to a decision whether to grow up, or act like a child and keep the fairy family he has known for so long. In the meantime, Hugh J. Magnate (Steven Weber), a larger-than-life oil tycoon, turns his attention to capturing Timmy’s fairies and using their power to fuel his maniacal ambition."
Now I know what some people would be thinking, why post about a direct to TV movie about fairy's instead of more recent posts about the upcoming smurfs movie? Well I'll tell you; We already know about the smurf movie the trailer says it all. Live action smurfs (well cgi cartoon) set in the real world in modern New York (instead of the medieval Europe ) and alot of inside jokes most likely smurfett being a whore and using the word smurf to swear. Neil Patrick Harris will be fun but its really not gonna be that great, granted it will be enjoyable to watch like the Flintstones movie (first one) or even the chipmunks live action but its not worth taking about it until later.
