We finally got to see some of Warner Bros. Animation’s brand spanking new Looney Tunes shorts here on the big screen in Annecy, showcased for a screaming, standing-room-only crowd, and they did not disappoint! WBA has now followed up its highly anticipated Annecy reveal with the release (watch below!) of Dynamite Dance, directed by David Gemmill, one of the first batch of finished shorts unveiled from the upcoming Looney Tunes Cartoons series. In WBA’s Annecy presentation, in addition to sharing multiple shorts with the crowd, executive producer Pete Browngardt and supervising producer Alex Kirwan gave Annecy attendees a behind-the-scenes look inside the program’s production process. Mummy Dummy, another of the new shorts, where Bugs mistakes an Egyptian tomb for a vacation resort, screened to an enthusiastic crowd on opening night in front of Lino DiSalvo’s new animated feature, Playmobil.
Looney Tunes Cartoons is a series of new animated cartoons starring revered, classic Looney Tunes characters like Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd. In a bold WBA commitment, each “season” of shorts will include 1,000 minutes of new Looney Tunes animation, produced by a premier crew of artists, that will be distributed across multiple platforms — including digital, mobile and broadcast.
