The Gargoyles creator is trying to give Disney a reason to revive the show.
Gargoyles was among the most popular shows back in the 90s and Disney+ did the world a favor by adding it to the streaming service. But, what about an entire revival of the series, adapting it to the audience of today? What about even a live-action remake? The possibilities are endless and the show's original creator, Greg Weisman, has stated that he is definitely down for that.
Weisman is right now trying to get the show to be popular with this generation so that Disney will revive the show. He tweeted urging everyone to continue watching the show saying:
We [can] Live Again! #KeepBingingGargoyles on #DisneyPlus!! This is exactly how the #YoungJustice fandom brought YJ back. It can happen to #Gargoyles too!
Not only Weisman is down but also Keith David who voiced the main character, Goliath. In an interview with Comicbook.com Keith David spoke about the Gargoyles series saying:
You know, those of us who were involved from the beginning... I've always wondered why they stopped it in the first place.
He went on to say:
[We've wondered] why we haven't come back to a reboot. I mean, I would love nothing more than to revisit Goliath.
You know, he was absolutely one of my very, very, very, very favorite characters. I've always maintained that when I grow up, I want to be like Goliath.
So now it's just a matter of Disney making the final decision to fund the revival. If the demand for the show is high and the original series proves to be very popular on Disney+ then a revival seems near.
The Gargoyles TV series debuted on October 24, 1994, and went on for a total of 78 episodes. It was about Gargoyles who awoke from a thousand-year slumber by a New York City billionaire. They enlist the help of a cop named Eliza Maza to protect themselves and the world from otherworldly threats.
It was famously reported that comedian and director Jordan Peele pitched an idea for a live-action version of the series to Disney but not much has yet come of it. But can you imagine a live-action version directed by Jordan Peele. That will be mental. But let's not get our hopes up too much.
For now, we can enjoy the original Gargoyles series, streaming on Disney+.
