We have to admit that Jim Crocett’s answer to our AMA questions is always fun, even if he’s not always the most interesting man in the room.
We’re just glad he answered our questions with an actual question and not some lame-ass imitation of a game question.
That said, we’ve got a few highlights to share with you below, as well as an interview with the creator of the iconic video game franchise, Jim Crocker.
First, Crocker gave some quick thoughts on his current project, the new Jim Crocodile, which is due out in March.
It’s a “really funny” title, Crock said, but not in the “funny” way you might expect from a guy who created a cartoon-inspired animated series.
“I’m trying to figure out what kind of game it’s going to be,” he said.
“That’s a big one, I guess.
It sounds silly, but that’s the kind of thing I’ve always wanted to do.”
Crocker was also asked about the possibility of making a sequel to the original Jim Crocopelon, the first animated series he created, and whether he would consider returning to the series in the future.
“It’s a very big deal to me,” Crocker said.
We asked whether the sequel would be like the original game or be more “serious” and, if so, how.
“It’s really serious,” he responded.
“If there’s an opportunity to do something like that, I would absolutely do it.”
He also touched on the upcoming reboot of Jim’s original series, and hinted that he would return to some of the characters from the original show.
“One of the things I’m really excited about is I’m working on a new Jim show with some of these old characters, and we’re doing it in the Jim Croco show,” he teased.
“They’re all pretty funny.”
While the first show didn’t necessarily have a “fun” vibe, it did have an “awesome” one, Croceter said.
He described his character as a “frenzy bunny,” and described it as being similar to The Office, which he worked on.
“There’s a lot of humor in that,” he joked.
“You know, I have to say, I really enjoy working on this show, and that’s a good thing.
The humor is good.”
Crocett also talked about the upcoming movie, and teased that the movie would be “a big part of the legacy of Jim.”
“It really is,” he admitted.
“So, yeah, I’m excited.”
Crockett also gave some insight into his next project, a new animated film based on the classic Jim Crocode, The Crocodilian.
“What I’m thinking about doing is trying to bring back that Jim-esque voice in some sort of new form of entertainment,” he told IGN.
“A lot of times, in movies, people just talk about what they’re thinking about, they don’t talk about the actual content that they’re talking about.
I think I’m just trying to get back to that [voice].”
He also teased that there would be some new characters in the film, but didn’t give any details.
Crocket also said he wasn’t sure if the film would be animated or live action.
“Maybe live action,” he quipped.
“I have no idea.
I have no clue,” Crocketer replied.
“All I know is, I can’t talk, and I can only say that it’s happening.”
Cropper then said he’s planning to have a film about Crocodilians’ life story, but wouldn’t share any details on when it would come out.
“The way I see it, I’ll tell you when it comes out,” he promised.
“As soon as I can get it done, it’s done.”
Crochett also said that he’d like to see the series continue, but he’d be interested in a new video game series based on his show.
“Maybe one day I’ll do that,” Crocetta said.
You know, we’re not doing it anymore.
“Just got my hands on that [game] and I’m ready to get into it.””
Oh yeah, that’s great, man,” he laughed.
“Just got my hands on that [game] and I’m ready to get into it.”
We’ll have more on the Jim Cercett interview and the Jim Crow reboot soon.
