Bone creator Jeff Smith gives first update on Netflix’s animated series

Netflix’s Bone animated series is still in the composing procedure, according to Jeff Smith, however he can state something for particular: The imaginative group behind it is precisely who he desired.

Polygon took a seat with Smith for a long interview on the 30th anniversary of the very first self-published concern of Bone (remain tuned for whatever we spoke about next week), however the subject of the Bone animated series naturally emerged. The Netflix program was revealed in October of 2019, however there hasn’t been much news considering that.

Smith states that preproduction was postponed along with much of the show business’s productions in 2020, however that, paradoxically, that hold-up yielded unforeseen advantages.

“There were a couple of people that worked on some shows that I [asked about],” Smith remembered, “due to the fact that I saw a lot of Animation Network reveals and some Netflix programs. Is this individual around? Can we get this individual? What’s this man doing now? Or what’s she doing? And thanks to the pandemic, I had the ability to get everyone I desired.

“I say thanks because there were people that were in contract, but we were delayed by like, eight or nine months because of the pandemic; [by that time] the contracts were up, and I got everybody I wanted. I don’t want to really say who they are, because I don’t want to steal Netflix’s thunder but, yes. I got my dream team of animation people, and I’m pretty excited about it so far.”

Bone initially struck racks in July 1991, and concluded its category mixing comedy/horror/high fantasy/all-ages experience impressive in 2004. The series blew up into brand-new appeal after it was gotten for reprinting in graphic unique format by Scholastic Books, and a brand-new generation of kids found the story of Phone Bone and the lost princess Thorn conserving the Valley from the return of the Lord of the Locusts. Stay tuned for Polygon’s complete interview with Smith, coming quickly.
