Dan Harmon Confirms Community Movie Is Coming
For fans of Community, it looks like #SixSeasonsAndAMovie is finally coming true.
Dan Harmon is best known for creating the Community sitcom series and Rick And Morty animated series. In an interview with The Wrap, he has confirmed that the Community movie is finally happening and that it’s a matter of when; not if anymore.
“I’ll confirm what Alison [Brie] said which is that legitimacy is here, conversations and agreements are happening. There’s a story — who knows if we’ll end up sticking to it, but it was something we had to compile in order to take it out and court various venues. And now negotiations happen.”
However, he also clarifies in the same interview that while the Community movie is indeed in the works, it might take a while:
“Now, I say that with such caution, because sometimes the audience is like, ‘So that means what a year, two years?’ I could have said what I just said three years ago and it would have been almost as accurate, and can you imagine if I had said that three years ago? That’s me setting people up for three years of abusive neglect and making them feel forgotten, and it’s hard enough to just say nothing.”
“When you put the percentage chances together it’s like you have to account for maybe the world blowing up or another virus happening. But as far as the industry is concerned, this is a matter of when and not if, for sure.”
Community originally aired for six seasons from 2009 to 2015. The series followed a study group at a fictional community college in Greendale, Colorado, which consisted of Joel McHale’s Jeff Winger, Chevy Chase as Pierce Hawthorne, Gillian Jacobs as Britta Perry, Danny Pudi as Abed Nadir, Yvette Nicole Brown as Shirley Bennett, Brie as Annie Edison and Donald Glover as Troy Barnes. Ken Jeong portrayed Ben Chang, who appeared in a variety of roles from Spanish professor to fellow student. The series also featured Jim Rash as Greendale’s dean, Craig Pelton.
Why made Community so great? It’s about a diverse ensemble cast of characters in a community college setting, but that’s not what makes it unique. The single best thing about Community was the concept episodes, where the series would divert from its basic sitcom trope setting for special episodes that focused on brilliant gimmicks and premises.
These include iconic paintball episodes, meta episodes, special Halloween and Christmas episodes, the darkest timeline concept, a satirical take on documentaries and a whole lot more.
All six seasons of Community are currently streaming on Netflix.
