April 2005 - Before you click on any of the links below, you should read this first. We hope it will answer all those who've asked, "When will you update the EQ movie page?" Everything else is history; the future is yet to be.
It used to be that the most asked question in all of Elfquest was,
"When's the next issue coming out?" That, of course, was born of the
fact that in the beginning all Wendy and I could manage was one
solitary issue every four months. So the old question has been replaced with, "What
about the Elfquest animated movie?" A lot of people have been waiting
a long time for this event.
History...We have available, for your viewing pleasure, a complete history of the Elfquest movie project.
Updates and sneak peaks...We also have updates on the status of the movie, a few storyboards from the pre-production team, and some paintings done by Wendy to show off what some of the scenes from the movie might look like.
