One Thing Ends and Another Thing Starts.

(Lego Studios; November 3, 2011)
Today, something very important happened. After a few false starts, the filming for Johnny Thunder and the Wisdom of the Ancients has officially started! The short sequence that takes place in Ancient Egypt is the only thing done so far, but the 3-year shoot is sure to be successful. The film will be released Summer 2014.
Yet, when one thing starts, other things must end. Ironically, the same day Johnny Thunder and the Wisdom of the Ancients started filming, the studio announced that, later this month, the Johnny Thunder Franchise Fan Page on Facebook will be disbanded. "It's just that nobody visits it anymore," said Lego Studios CEO Mark Matthew. "It's also too narrow in scope. While our Johnny Thunder films get all of this extra attention, our other films get left out of the equation, so to speak." Therefore, also later this month, the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Facebook page will debut. It will constantly fill in the fans on new information, whether it be about the website, new films, or new press releases.
In other news, the swiff files for two classic Lego.com games, The Great Mountain Chase and Quest for the Golden Dragon, have been found floating around the Internet by a member of adventurers.dk. Thanks to this contribution, both games are now linked in the Johnny Thunder Franchise Fun Zone on the website.
Also, don't forget about December 9th, 2011, when A Battle to Remember and Gone Ice Fishin' will be released!
