Joe Dante Discusses The Termite Terrace Movie That Never Was

As part of Le Monde and Forum des Images’ series on films that never came to be, Gremlins director Joe Dante discusses his never-filmed Termite Terrace. The project came about after Dante befriended legendary animator Chuck Jones and would’ve followed Jones’ time as part of the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies unit at Warner Bros.

In the following video (spotted by Cartoon Brew), Dante talks about some of the material the film would have covered and the characters based on some of the other people involved in the creation of the Looney Tunes.
