If you’re a fan of the Star Fox franchise, you may be wondering which movie features your favorite characters. Unfortunately, there isn’t a Star Fox movie in existence.. yet. However, there have been rumors and discussions about the possibility of a movie adaptation in the future.
What is Star Fox?
Star Fox is a video game series developed and published by Nintendo. The series follows the adventures of Fox McCloud and his team of anthropomorphic animals as they protect their home planet from various threats. The series is known for its fast-paced gameplay, unique vehicles, and memorable characters.
Why hasn’t there been a Star Fox movie?
While many fans would love to see a Star Fox movie adaptation, there hasn’t been much movement on that front. One possible reason for this is that video game movies have historically not performed well at the box office or with critics. Another reason could be that Nintendo is very protective of its intellectual property and may be hesitant to allow an outside studio to take creative control of a movie adaptation.
Rumors and Possibilities
Despite the lack of official news on a Star Fox movie, there have been some rumors and discussions surrounding the possibility. In 2015, it was reported that an animated Star Fox series was in development by Shigeru Miyamoto, one of the creators of the franchise. However, nothing came of this announcement.
In 2017, it was reported that Wes Ball, director of The Maze Runner trilogy, was interested in directing a live-action Star Fox movie. He even tweeted out concept art for what he imagined some of the characters would look like in live-action form. However, again nothing has come from these reports.
It’s worth noting that Nintendo has recently shown more interest in expanding its properties into other forms of media. They’ve announced partnerships with companies like Illumination Entertainment (the studio behind Despicable Me and Minions) to produce a Super Mario Bros. movie, and with Universal Studios to create Nintendo-themed areas in their theme parks. This could mean that a Star Fox movie is more likely in the future.
While there isn’t currently a Star Fox movie, there have been rumors and discussions about the possibility of one in the future. While it’s unclear when or if this will happen, fans of the franchise can still enjoy the games and other media featuring their favorite characters.
