So a second Caillou and Dora movie, entitiled Life is Sweet, is coming soon. The non-canon movie focuses on a strange race against time, and life or death situations. It will be mostly likely rated R, and will be released in September.
Coming in late 2016/early 2017 is the animated, no-holds barred blockbuster Strictly Business. The idea came after merging both the cancelled Zara and Erika movie and the sequel to Caillou and Dora: The Grounded Mission. At that times GoAnimate was removing its' themes except Business Friendly (A dumb move), and since I had followed African Vulture's advice to save the characters and scenes as starters, I kept all of my previous material.
The GoAnimate community was and still is in a great divide, and the movie will parody and satirize some of the flaws in the community. In the movie, there's an alternative, more surreal explanation for why the themes were removed, and business friendly was spared. One of the earlier ideas I had was the characters slowly being erased, but I had phased that out. There will be a message, but I will be EXTREMELY careful not to come across as preachy.
Strictly Business is also kind of a shock film, with gory scenes and graphic (for GoAnimate) sex. For this film, I'm basically pushing the limits. I'm not gonna try to shoehorn "edgy" material every minute, but I'm just testing the waters. Also, I'm pushing my abilities to make scenes more realistic. There's a bar fight in the movie that I wanted to shove as many details into as possible. Although I haven't reached this part yet, there's gonna be a drug trip and to make it as psychedelic as possible, I've been experimenting with various video editors. There's also a rap battle scene planned, and I'll be editing the TTS voices to go with the flow.
The film does feature live action cameos from some of my friends and if things turn out the way I planned, they will voice act a few characters. All in all, Strictly Business is gonna have a little bit of everything.
The raunchy 90-minute Zara/Erika, Caillou/Dora crossover will be coming in two flavors. The reason for this act of self-censorship? I don't want the "cleaner" side of the audience to miss out on the adventures and messages presented in the movie. Things that will be censored include:
The PG-13 cut will be released first in late 2016, with the NC-17 version coming out later on.
