Bruce Timm: "I think it’s going to be really, really good... It’s a really big story... New Frontier, even though it’s a big sprawling thing, kind of does dovetail. There’s all these great bits throughout the entire novel that don’t initially seem to go anywhere, but ultimately lead up to the big finish. I hated to do it but some of my favorite parts had to be cut out just to get that whole story down to the 70-minute length. Ultimately, we managed to keep what we think is really important without throwing the baby out with the bath water. I was amazed at that when I watched the animatic a little while ago. All I could think is ‘Wow! That’s New Frontier,’ and not just a Cliff Notes version of it."
