Something big about to happen?
« on: November 02, 2012, 02:23:37 pm »
It recently came to my attention that the Arthur Facebook page has been hinting around at a big announcement to come over the holiday season, so I thought that maybe we could do some speculating.

Any ideas on what it could be?

An Arthur fighting game? An Arthur first person shooter game? A video game of some sort? What is it?
Arthur: I told you...NOT TO TOUCH IT!!! Captain Falcon: Falcon Punch! Terry Bogard: Are you okay!? Buster Wolf!

Though I doubt it's an Arthur fighting game, a video game is a possibility...

I'm wondering if since its the holiday season that they're announcing it, maybe it ties in to the holidays? Some new piece of blockbuster merchandise?

It could even be as simple as a new Arthur special, which, when you think about it, might make sense, as 9 Story might want to explore some new options now that they are at the helm of things.

That was my assumption as I was reading your opening post.

Wait where on the Facebook page is the hinting? Because I don't see it.

I think it could be likely, but then I have to wonder why they would take on such a large project after just beginning to be involved with the franchise...it just seems to me that it would have made more sense for them to wait a year or two to do that until they are well established within the franchise, see how the new season is received, etc.

I wonder if an Arthur movie could even be a possibility, though with the new animation, I'm not sure that it would even do well...

I am getting this info from someone else, however I posted about it because I know them well enough to put full confidence in them that they do know what they're talking about. I will find that out, though.

I am thinking maybe a special is what is on my mind. Arthur really hasn't had a special in 10 years now (Sorry due to the fact Arthur's Missing Pal was never referenced in any of the episodes it really doesn't count to me).

Arthur's Missing Pal was in a whole different field of play...if anything I think it was more of an experiment than a special. Hopefully if this is a special, it is an actual special rather than some off the wall thing like AMP was.

Yeah I'm leaning towards a new special as well. What if it's Thanksgiving-themed? I don't remember the show ever mentioning Thanksgiving.

Probably because it'd be confusing for them, since we don't have the same Thanksgivings: our American Thanksgiving falls on the last Thursday of November, and we remember the pilgrims arriving on the new land, and the natives sharing what they had with them, including the first Thanksgiving feast; their Canadian Thanksgiving is like the first Monday of October, and I forget how they celebrate it, but I don't believe pilgrims and indians are involved.

However note that "Francine's Pilfered Paper" takes place over the Thanksgiving Holiday.

It's probably...

1. Another holiday special

2. Another contest

3. Another Arthur Live show. I remember there being one years ago. I think it was based on "Arthur's Lucky Pencil." Maybe they'll do Arthur On Ice, like all the ice shows D.W. and Emily talk about.

What it could be is monumental at this point. It could be just about anything including and bear with me on this another spin off revolving around another character.

If anything, I would like to see a spinoff involving D.W. and her friends/classmates. The series already feels kind of divided between Arthur and his friends and D.W. and her friends. Splitting into two separate series would be the most sensible way to go, I'd think. The D.W. series could be geared towards the preschool-age viewers while the Arthur series will still be for the tween-and-older crowd.

...I'm getting way off subject here, so I'll stop.
