Rick And Morty producer Scott Marder has been speaking with confidence lately that a spin-off film “will happen” in the near future.
Discussing the possibility of seeing Rick And Morty on the big screen, speaking in a recent interview with Metro, Marder said:
“It’d be daunting, I wouldn’t be shocked if there was one that comes down the pipe one day.”
“I feel like every episode is a movie. I’d like to see what a movie would be, I feel like we pack so much in. It’d have to be pretty epic.”
“I think it will happen. I do think it will happen.”
One of the show’s stars, Spencer Grammer, who voices Summer on the show, added:
“It’d have to be something so big – like a 3D interactive movie that also has a theme park. I don’t know if you could just do a straight movie.
“There are those 4D movie theatres in New York City.”
Meanwhile, Adult Swim is developing a short-form spin-off of Rick And Morty called The Vindicators.
The Vindicators will follow Supernova, Vance Maxiumus, Alan Rails, Crocubot, and Noob Noob as the titular superhero team, who first made their appearance in season three, episode four of Rick And Morty, ‘Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender’.
The Vindicators executive producers Sarah Carbiener and Erica Rosbe said:
“We are thrilled to work in the Rick and Morty universe again, and these shorts are an incredible opportunity to explore what happens in the aftermath of the Vindicators saving (or destroying) worlds.”
Rick And Morty seems to be ramping up the hype for its fifth season on Adult Swim, and it looks like the whole family will be getting in on even more off-the-wall sci-fi adventures from Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon.
The new series will be returning for ten episodes, and rather than break up the season into two parts like for the fourth season, it looks like we’re getting a full slate of new episodes this Summer.
Rick And Morty return to Adult Swim for its fifth season starting this summer on June 20th.
