Sometime soon there’s a new movie coming out based on the adventures of Yogi Bear and Boo-Boo. And the Ranger no doubt. I have no idea when this is happening (Christmas apparently), and have stayed up at night wondering why.
IMDB says this:
A documentary filmmaker travels to Jellystone Park to shoot a project and soon crosses paths with Yogi Bear, his sidekick Boo-Boo, and Ranger Smith.
Yogi is one of the last remaining favored characters to get the movie treatment and apparently it’ll be getting the full 3D treatment. A combination of live action and CGI characters. The movie has an interesting set of actors providing the voices. Dan Aykroyd is voicing Yogi and Justin Timberlake is providing the voice for Boo-Boo. There’s obviously a host of others rounding out the cast, but none of that matters.
If you choose to interpret it thusly, Yogi and Boo-Boo represent a gay couple (Think Bert and Ernie with more fur) with Yogi as the dominant (bigger) bear and Boo-Boo obviously the other half. Those who do choose to interpret it that way also take a look at the teaser poster (to the right) and think “Wow – that’s dirty.” You know – Yogi is behind Boo-Boo and they’re both looking pretty happy.
I’d rather not think of my childhood TV shows in such a way, but having been told about it, I find it difficult to think otherwise now. Some days I hate the internet. You can watch the trailer below.
