Why wasn't Monster House mentioned? I fixed it, but still...
- Monster House, as I recall, didn't have the Sony Pictures Animation logo at the beginning. --(trogga) 01:56, 21 May 2007 (UTC)
The Familiars has been cancelled
According to Sony Pictures Animation's artist, Armand Serrano, Sony has cancelled The Familiars: http://armandserrano.blogspot.com/2012/08/bridgetower.html, http://armandserrano.blogspot.com/2012/09/bridgetower-2.html.
- Both posts are labelled with The Familiars. Titles of both posts are "The Bridgetower", which is a city from the Familiars novels: http://www.thefamiliars.com/meet-the-familiars.php.
- Some other images from his gallery that are titled with "familiars" have the same content as pictures in his posts linked above: http://www.armandserrano.com/Gallery1/images/familiars1.jpg, http://www.armandserrano.com/Gallery1/images/familiars2.jpg, http://www.armandserrano.com/Gallery1/images/familiars3.jpg
- Two months ago SPA listed The Familiars as a project in development: http://sonypicturesanimation.com/newsroom.php?p=article&s=071212. In the press release from 2 weeks ago, The Familiars hasn't been included in the development slate: http://sonypicturesanimation.com/newsroom.php?p=article&s=082712.
- Armand Serrano's blog is reliable - his blog was linked from the official Sony Picures Animation's twitter account: http://twitter.com/SonyAnimation/status/205043760537665536. And SPA's twitter account is reliable as it is linked from the official SPA's home page: http://www.sonypicturesanimation.com/.
- As far as adding citations in the article. Where to? Sony has cancelled many projects in its history. More than there have been produced. Some of the cancelled projects can be seen in the Serrano's gallery and none of them has any info on this article: http://www.armandserrano.com/home/home.html. Except for Neanderthals, which has as a source for its cancellation Serrano's blog post. Recently I've removed Futuropolis based on Serrano's comment in his gallery. If we add every project that has been halted in the development process, there would be too many secondary information that has not had any substantial impact on the studio or has been particularly noted.
- First, blogs are not reliable sources regardless of how many Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc links there are. A citation does not acquire reliability by association. Secondly, please provide a citation to a reliable source that clearly states that the film is cancelled, not citations to sources that do not mention the film. Not mentioning something is not evidence that it does not exist. And certainly a title to an image is not evidence of anything. There are sources provided in the articles that confirm the film. It is your responsibility to provide a reliable source that unequivocally confirms that it has been cancelled. This is an encyclopedia, not a tabloid or a personal website.
