Anche l’orso Yoghi e il suo compagnuccio Bubu passano in 3D.
Orrore? Raccapriccio? Conati?
Stiamo a vedere (per Natale, almeno noi americani). Certo è che, per chi ama questi personaggi da decenni, il pugno colpisce come un Pendolino l’abomaso: ka-bboOOoom!
Certo, mi sembravano assai più genuine, e non dettate da obiettivi spudoratamente commerciali, sperimentazioni come queste, occasionali, ma abbastanza incisive (questo sopra è il solito John Kricfalusi, che nei prossimi giorni, sono certo, sparerò fiele su questo nuovo, paventato Yogi Bear).
Senza proferir commento, Cartoon Brew ha semplicemente postato questo poster e ha ramazzato, istantaneamente, oltre cento repliche di lettori.
Commentacci quasi tutti negativi, come “NO NO NO NO NO, Hollywood Please stop Beeping with my childhood”, o “Why do all of these CGI cartoon characters always have these ultra-detailed, super creepy human eyes? Ugly, ugly, ugly!!”
Qualcuno si è dato la pena di radunare le informazioni che crede di avere in merito in un video tutt’altro che ufficiale come quello che segue…
Eccole trascritte, anche per chi non vuole o non può fruire del video.
Yogi Bear is a 2010 Film which is a remake of the cartoon. It will be released on December 17, 2010. It will star Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake, Christine Taylor, Tom Cavanagh & Anna Faris.
Yogi Bear is an upcoming 3-D live-action/CGI film adaptation of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon series.
It will be distributed by Warner Bros. with Hanna-Barbera Productions. It will be the first movie development of a Hanna-Barbera property produced with the assistance of neither Bill Hanna nor Joe Barbera (the original creators), who died in 2001 and 2006 respectively.
Eric Brevig is the director, and Donald De Line, Karen Rosenfelt and Tim Coddington are the producers, with Lee Berger, Jim Dyer, Andrew Hass and Jon Berg as the executive producers. Dan Aykroyd stars in the film as Yogi Bear. Principal photography began in November, 2009.
Jellystone Park has been losing business, so greedy Mayor Brown decides to shut it down and sell the land. That means families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors — and, even worse, Yogi and Boo Boo will be tossed out of the only home they’ve ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove that he really is “smarter than the average bear” as he and Boo Boo join forces with their old nemesis Ranger Smith to find a way to save Jellystone Park from closing forever.

On October 2, 2008, it was confirmed that a live-action/CGI Yogi Bear movie was in the works. Ash Brannon was originally scheduled to direct the film but was replaced by Eric Brevig (Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D) when it was decided that the film would be produced as a 3-D project. Donald De Line is the producer and Karen Rosenfelt is the executive producer along with Jon Berg as a secondary executive producer for Warner Bros.
Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia wrote the script. The film, adapting the television series, will follow the adventures of Yogi Bear and his pal Boo-Boo in Jellystone Park, as they avoid Ranger Smith who is trying to stop Yogi from stealing picnic baskets. Dan Aykroyd will voice Yogi, Justin Timberlake will voice his pal, Boo Boo, and Christine Taylor will voice his girlfriend, Cindy Bear. Anna Faris plays a nature-documentary film-maker following the escapades of Yogi in Jellystone Park. Tom Cavanagh will be playing the part of Ranger Smith.
Filming began in New Zealand in November 2009.
Rhythm and Hues is confirmed to be providing CGI character animation for Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo, and Cindy Bear in the film. The company had previously worked with Hanna-Barbera on past theatrical productions, including Jetsons: The Movie, The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.
