Due to time constraints, the panel for Futurama was strictly focused on questions from the audience. Here are the highlights courtesy TV Squad.
- The primary voice cast: Billy West, Katey Sagal, and John DiMaggio as well as creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, were in attendance.
- Matt and David both said that they had the entire story of Futurama planned before the show began. They didn’t know where the show would go, but they still have plenty of secrets to reveal via the DVD’s.
- Responding to a question on how the time code was created for the first Futurama DVD, Cohen responded: “If it wasn’t obvious to you then you should be ashamed of yourself,” said David. More seriously, David said that the code was the same in the mirror as it was when read properly on Bender’s rear end.
- The Fry-Leela relationship will be revisited during the 4th DVD and there may be some kissing.
- Guest appearances for the upcoming DVDs: George Takei and Rich Little in the third DVD and Snoop Dogg and Penn Gillette in the fourth DVD.
Fox also showed some footage of the upcoming DVD “‘Bender’s Game’ and the movie has been dated for release on DVD and Blu-ray Hi-Def on November 4, 2008. Check out promotional art below courtesy /Film (click to enlarge).
