Let’s face information. The 1999 South Park film, Greater, Longer, and Uncut, is among the finest film musicals ever. And within the 22 years since its launch, whereas its creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have made loads of South Park, they haven’t made one other film. However that adjustments later this 12 months, in a bizarre form of manner.
Final August, Parker and Stone signed a $900 million deal to proceed South Park via 2027. A part of the deal concerned 14 mysterious new films that may arrive on the Paramount+ streaming service, and now, talking to the Hollywood Reporter, we all know what which means and after they’ll start to reach.
The primary of those new “made for TV” South Park films can be launched November 25 and it’s referred to as South Park: Submit Covid. “It’s the boys coping with a post-covid world. They’re simply making an attempt to get again to regular,” Parker instructed the commerce. “So, it’s like our present. We’re simply making an attempt to get again to regular.” The second movie will then arrive in December, with two extra arriving throughout every of the subsequent six years.
However, in contrast to the 1999 musical, these will not be fairly full-length function movies, nor are they common South Park episodes and even South Park specials. These are model new movies that run about an hour every. “We’re making an attempt to make what’s on Paramount+ completely different from wherever else,” Stone mentioned. “So hourlong made-for-TV films is the place our head is at. We’ll do two made-for-TV films yearly. They are going to be huge, however they aren’t fairly film scale.”
“With Viacom, we realized we may make them as lengthy or as brief as we would have liked,” Parker added. “They usually then went and referred to as them ‘films.’ They’re those who mentioned we’re giving them 14 films in seven years. All I can say is for me, personally, I’m 52 years outdated, I’ve made three films in my life. So that you do the maths.”
