I don’t know if I have ever mentioned this, but I want to be a director when I grow up. Well, for me (and all those budding filmmakers out there), this news is a dream come true. Introducing…
Here’s the description for the island:
The greatest filmmaker of all time has come out of hiding, and he needs your help to make his masterpiece. But will you be producing the next big blockbuster, or is there trouble in tinseltown? From the first frame to the final cut, it’s lights, camera, action!
Members get an additional gear pack that includes the Film Director costume, Silent Treatment power, and Clapperboard item.
This poster gives us a few hints at what we will be seeing on Back Lot Island. You can see a Hollywood starlet holding an Oscar (or is it a Popscar?), Groucho Marx or some other silent film comedian, Elvis Presley, the guy who must be the director, King Kong, a suave-looking film star (Maybe Tom Cruise?), Clint Eastwood, and Gollum and Bilbo from The Hobbit.
If you look closely at this sneak peek from the Daily Pop, you will see movie posters advertising for The Hobo, which is probably a parody of The Hobbit.
Last but not least, here’s the trailer for Back Lot Island. Like the other recent island trailers, it shows a cartoon in place of actual gameplay.
Say! That gives me an idea! What if there was a Poptropica cartoon series?
