Warner Bros. Shuts Down ElfQuest Movie So As Not To Compete with ‘The Hobbit’

This weekend, Wendy Pini posted this to the official ElfQuest Facebook:

After close to four years of suspense - and longer than four years of your much-appreciated interest and support - the word has come down from Warner Bros. And the word is “no.” Their simple explanation is that they don’t want to compete with “The Hobbit.” This was a possibility, among several, that we were prepared for. It is a relief, at last, to know.

So…where that leaves us is that Wendy has done all she can, for three decades, with regard to an Elfquest movie. There is nothing more she can do or wants to do. As for Richard, he will continue to manage Warp Graphics’ properties and pursue publishing and licensing opportunities.

Thank you so much for all your love and encouragement. Believe us, it has not fallen on bare rock. We will spend the next few years producing Elfquest “The Final Quest.” Then, who knows? Our capacity for dreaming big has not diminished.

I can’t say that makes much sense. ¬†Apart from the vast differences in story, it would make sense to me that Warner Brothers would want a new fantasy movie/franchise to follow up the two Hobbit movies. ¬†Hopefully they’ll look back into it in a few years.
