The Internet's gone BANANAS...
...over the news that broke yesterday about the Bananaman movie!
Here's the official website: http://www.bananamanmovie.com/
Elstree Studios are involved. Speculation on the Internet is rife. Will it be live action or CGI? Who's in it? How far will it divert from the comics?
And will it guest star Bananaman's niece Bananagirl, who was in the Super School strip I used to do for The Beano? (Probably not, but as everyone else is reporting the news with an image of Bananaman I thought I'd feature Bananagirl on my post instead.)
All I know about the project is what's on the official website, which is practically nothing. Looks like we'll have to wait and see.
Bananaman originated in Nutty comic, moved over to The Dandy, and now resides in The Beano every week. Let's hope this news brings the comic new readers. (Next Beano is out tomorrow, priced £2.)
