It’s not often I can say this about a documentary, but I really want to see this one about Disney reviving their animation legacy with films like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and The Nightmare Before Christmas.

TV Overmind is reporting that a new Buffy the Vampire Slayer animated series is in the works, based on the “Season 8″ comic books:
What is certain is that because they’re using the comic books as their starting point, all our favorite characters will be returning and this animated series will compliment the original series. Whether any of the original cast will provide voices is uncertain (though I’m doubtful). But Joss Whedon is involved.
This isn’t the first we’ve heard of a Buffy animated series, of course: Fox was developing one in 2002, but it never went furthur than a 4-minute “pilot.” Will this new attempt will ever get beyond the rumor stage? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II won Annie Awards for Best Animated Television Production, Writing, and Voice Acting for Ahmed Best’s Jar-Jar. But perhaps the biggest shock was the total shut-out of WALL-E – it was beat in nearly every category it was nominated for by Kung Fu Panda. Seriously. Kung Fu Panda. The hell?
Other winners include Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs and Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Kevin Kiner was up for Music in an Animated Television Production for the ‘Rising Malevolence’ episode of The Clone Wars, but lost out to Henry Jackman, Hans Zimmer & John Powell for Secrets of the Furious Five, a Kung Fu Panda spinoff.
