Calvin and Hobbes: The Movie by shokxone-studios Calvin and Hobbes: The Movie by shokxone-studios

1. Bill Watterson would never let a Calvin & Hobbes film get made. So stop worrying.

2. Assuming a C&H film were producable, I'd sooner see it as animation than live-action. But if it had to be live-action, have Hobbes animated a la Roger Rabbit instead of CGI'd like Garfield.

Oh, and either Pixar or Studio Ghibli would have to make it.

That is all.

I wish they would start by making a Calvin and Hobbes TV special, (like the peanuts) I don't think they're ready for the movies. Besides Bill watterson has his pride.

A Calvin and Hobbes film would not work in the modern age because of CGI. If it were to be made, it would be made with CGI. BECAUSE EVERYONE FRIGGIN LOVES THAT FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON!

Seriously why does everyone like CGI so much??? UGH! 

But yeah this wouldnt work today

Actually, there was a teaser trailer involving Calvin and Hobbes, but it was only fan made. set in a child's perspective. Making it into a family film would be a cool experience for me, considering I haven't exactly grown up with C&H. But I've fallen in love with the comic strips, I even have The accentual C&H book and I am enjoying it very much. All though I cant help but want to ask for some friendly advice from the fans themselves on why or why not this shouldn't be put into a movie?

1 it looks like this classic is past the marking point for such a big jump into the filming industry. Considering how much money we spend on animation now a days, it seems that CGI is becoming more popular and indeed wouldn't be suited to deliver the same classic magic we get from the art itself.
and I don't really want to think about Disney doing this I haven't been a fan of this long enough to voice out my opinion on the idea of WHO would produce it anyways xD. 

2 casting is out of the question. we have seen some very talented kid actors and actresses, but from the movies I see know a days that involve kid actors....I don't find it appealing. In the sense that some children have found it difficult in the specific genre they play in. And puts a strain on them altogether, which is probably why we save those for the much older actors, If this was made into a movie...I wouldn't count on any of these companies
giving us a KID actor. As for Hobbes...he's already hard to draw in my opinion, but also I don't think it would be a good idea to have him CGI or any of that jazz, Plus I would find it difficult to switch around from his form as Calvin's  imaginary friend, to a stuffed tiger that other people see through their POV.

But I want to know what other fans think. :)

Studio ghibli no doubt. They made the god damned spirited away movie and look where that went.

Your declaimers are so very true...though Pixar would somehow make the beginning tear jerking.
