Fans of the Disney franchise Gargoyles are either going to be extremely excited or upset about a fan film that recently hit YouTube and shows the Gargoyles in an entirely different light.
The former Disney animated series originally aired from 1994 to 1997. The show featured a species of nocturnal creatures known as gargoyles that turn to stone during the day. As creepy as that might sound, the cartoon had a legion of followers who loved the cute but dark characters. The series, in a way, was far ahead of its time with a feel of a Batman or DC animated series.
Clearly, one fan missed the show, because he took a lot of time and effort into producing a fan film that is extremely well done. Of the over 4,000 users of YouTube who have seen the video, the likes are heavily numbered towards the positive side of the scale. Many of the comments have noted that the production value is excellent, and the suspense makes them wish Disney would create an actual live-action film based on his idea.
One commenter said, "EPIC!!! This is the best fan film I've ever seen. It got me curious about the gargoyles and it left me wanting to see more. Two big thumbs up. Bravo :-D." Another said, "Congrats I'm a huge fan of the old Gargoyles series as well and this is a great way to modernize it! I hope Disney gives the thumbs up to make the movie!"
You can see the film below.
There is no word on whether anyone from Disney has seen the fan film or not, and there is no word on whether or not Disney intends to revive the Gargoyles characters in a film adaptation. But, if the fan film that is starting to make it's way around YouTube is any indication of what the film might look, there are plenty of people who would go see it.
