Animated Poe Movie

My new blog buddy Hiyoko just shared some fun movie news with me! There is an animated movie coming up in 2011 about none other than Edgar Allen Poe! So now there are two Poe movies to look forward to.

I couldn't find much information about the movie aside from the link Hiyoko sent me:

The movie will be made up of some of Poe's famous tales: MS. In A Bottle, Murder In The Rue Morgue, Premature Burial, The Black Cat. Additionally, there are several of his poems included.

It looks like Dianne Wiest (Lucy in The Lost Boys) will be doing one of the voices in this movie!


  1. How exciting! We will have to go see these!!

  2. Yeah! I'm guessing that the animated Poe movie would be at the Oriental anyway...I'm glad to see all the Poe interest!

  3. I'm not sure which I'd like better, stop motion or classical animation.

  4. Hmm...I'm not sure either. It looks like this one is going to be done with classic animation. Tim Burton has done a lot with stop motion, so I think I'm ready to see some gothic animation done the classic way!
