Coming Attractions: A new Looney Tunes movie---direct to DVD

At ToonZone, members have been griping about WB not having released a DVD that didn't include either Tom & Jerry or Scooby-Doo of late, not to mention the ongoing DTVs featuring either Batman or the Justice League. Those 4 franchises are making WB a ton of change at the registers, so why rock the boat? Because there are fans of other franchises, such as Looney Tunes, that are being left out. Sure, we've seen WWE superstars such as John Cena and Triple H interact with Scooby and The Flintstones, with a 2nd WWE-Scooby team-up due next year, and it was the first Flintstones DTV. Now, it's time for Bugs Bunny and friends to get some spotlight time.

Due later this year is "Looney Tunes: Rabbits Run". The plot involves an invisibility formula, which somehow gets into the hands of scatterbrained, but cute as a button Lola Bunny. Unfortunately, Kristen Wiig (ex-The Looney Tunes Show) apparently wasn't brought back, unlike the rest of the Looney Tunes Show crew. Not sure if they're starting anew with Bugs (Jeff Bergman) & Lola as a couple, but they do team up.

Collider supplies the trailer, which went live on Friday.

This looks like fun, doesn't it?

When does it come out?

I suspect the reason why Kristen Wiig won't be voicing Lola here is because either a) The studio couldn't afford her, or b) Ms. Wiig couldn't work the recording into her schedule. In any case, I'm glad to see that we'll be getting more of the Loony Lola, regardless of who's providing the character's voice.

Steven: No release date has been announced yet.

Goldstar: I'd go with option b in re.: Kristen Wiig.
