Elfquest is one of those nerdy franchises that always seems to be just on the cusp of going into development on a big screen film. And so it goes…

Variety is reporting that film producers Stephanie Thorpe and Paula Rhodes have acquired the rights to Elfquest, a property that was formally set-up at Warner Bros. But Thrope and Rhodes seem dead serious about moving forward with this, they even made a little sample of the project:

But if you’re an Elfquest fan, and you’re still not sure, then Elfquest co-creator Wendy Pini wants you to know that Thrope and Rhodes have her complete support:

“With their deep love and understanding of the property, they represent a new direction for ElfQuest…new creative energy and new connections in the larger media.”

The series, which blends sci-fi and fantasy, follows “Cutter, his tribe the Wolfriders, and their quest to find and unite other groups of elves against the threat of humans, trolls, and other assorted nasties.” If you’re interested at all, you can read every issue of Elfquest on the series’ official website.

What do you Bastards think? Shall we all Elfquest together at the local multiplex?

Aaaaah Elfquest. I never read it, but I know a lot of people who do. It’s rather surprising that Hollywood hasn’t bastardized it with a movie. Will leave that to the fan-boys. Er….fan-girls.

A few geeky fangirls took it upon themselves to create a short, but rather impressive teaser trailer for an “ElfQuest” film. There isn’t much to the trailer, but according to the official ElfQuest Fan Fiction website, the project is a labor of love and their goal is to “create new fans and give existing ones a taste of the world we’ve loved for so long.”

Here’s what the actresses and producers had to say:

“Both of us have been fans of EQ since we were little girls, and this project is a complete labor of love. We are working actresses and producers in the New Media circle and when we discovered our shared lifelong love for this series we were spurred to action. ElfQuest showed us the heroines that we could aspire to become and its magic shaped us, ultimately leading us into the creative entertainment sphere. So we owe it a lot!”

Blah…blah…blah. Elf ears on scantily clad lovely ladies? I’m fapping with glee. MOAR PLZ!
