Disney's Amphibia

Post by Mr. Big (?) » Sun Apr 28, 2019 1:24 pm

Disney is releasing a new show this summer, "Amphibia".
[Brenda] Song plays 13-year-old Anne Boonchuy, an independent and fearless teen who is magically transported to the fantastical world of Amphibia, a rural marshland full of frog-people.




If the style looks similar to "Gravity Falls", it's because the show's creator worked on the show.

Personally, this looks neat. I'm gonna watch the first episode at least when it comes out.

Hell yeah. I'm glad we're starting to get Asian characters that's not caricatures. Long overdue.

So, do series threads actually go in this forum now instead of General Offtopic?

The show's intro. Animated by Studio Yotta, which always does good work.

The island is either a giant lily-pad or a giant Pac-Man.

..I never considered the island is supposed to resemble a lilypad. I assumed that was supposed to be Pac-Man :-I

Not that bad. The only gripe I have is that the frogs look very Simpson-y in a very strange way and I'm afraid that some characters might become grating over time.

So it looks like they're gonna air the show semi-daily, with new episodes every Monday thru Thursday. The entire season will be burned through in 5 weeks.

I guess Disney learned their lesson from the "Gravity Falls" airing schedule :-I

this seems like the other extreme though, something CN also did for that Summer Camp Island show, which meant it had barely any footprint in the general media conciousness whatsoever and didn't get nearly enough attention

so lets make sure we keep up word of mouth

A new episode every day worked for the Disney Afternoon, but each of those shows also had a full 65-episode run completed before it even hit the air as per syndication requirements. (Which must have been hell for everyone involved.)

I never even heard of "Summer Camp Island" until you mentioned it so...yeah, point taken.

Another problem with abbreviated airing schedule is that it means Season 2 is gonna take longer to come out.

I remember listening to a podcast interview with an animation artist who worked on a 65-episode season cartoon and he said that, yeah, working on those shows were rough. The story editors would get through the scripts quickly by making a checklist of things to avoid/they personally dislike and just skim through the scripts looking for those things.

Airing schedules on these channels have been fucked for years, I don't think they know how to handle the internet and streaming being a thing

and yeah watch Summer Camp Island it's really neat

The series grows on me.
After 5 episodes, on a personal level, I cannot look away from the twig and the leaves in Anne's hair. How can she ignore these?

Oh wonder. Sprig doesn't annoy me as he used to in the first episodes. His antics were dialed back a lot, especially in the latest episode "Toad Tax" he earned more of my respect.

I can't wait to see Sasha meeting Anne or the other girl. It'll be interesting.
