We’re probably never going to see a live-action film based on one of Matt Groening’s cartoons, so this Futurama fan-film is the closest we’re going to get.
It’s actually kind of stunning how accurate this fan-film, Fan-o-rama, is.
If anything, the video might be proof of why a Futurama film probably wouldn’t work — Leela and Professor Farnsworth look kind of nightmarish in live action, and hearing anything other than the original actors’ voices come out of the mouths of these characters just sounds wrong.
Still — it’s a fun experiment, and it lasts all of 103 seconds, so if you’re a Matt Groening fan, you’ll probably get a kick out of it.
Apparently, there’s more of this to come — head to fan-o-rama.com for updates.
