It's time for the Animanicast! Discussing the Animaniacs Reboot Panel from the Ottawa Animation Festival

Recently the Animaniacs reboot production team sat down to talk at the Ottawa International Animation Festival about the upcoming show! Join Joey as he shares clips from the panel, shares his opinion on what was said and hear from some other animators who share some of their thoughts and concerns over the upcoming reboot.

Animaniacs at the Ottawa International Animation Festival

Animaniacs Reboot showrunner Wellesley Wild and co-executive producer Gabe Swarr were joined by Supervising Character Designer Genevieve Tsai and Art Director Roman Laney to talk about how they came about creating new designs for the Warners and what the process was like for writing the show and creating new music. The panel showcased lots of great concept art and some new backgrounds of the Warner lot and ACME Labs.

While some of the information on the panel sounds promising, Joey does share some reservations about how the show producers were picked. Especially when one of them states that he was never really a fan of the original show. After the panel clips, some feedback from animators not involved in the production is shared. They offer up some reservations on how the show is being developed. 

Today's episode is more visually dependent than most. Because of this, you might want to watch our YouTube video of today's episode.
