If you live in Southern California and ever wanted to meet Ralph Bakshi, this week you have your chance – twice!
First, on Thursday night, Ralph will be appearing in person at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) to introduce his 1977 fantasy Wizards, a restoration of which will be screened at 7:30pm. For tickets click here.
Second, on Saturday at 6:30pm, Bakshi will do a Q&A session in Room 207 at WonderCon in Anaheim.
For those who cannot get to the west coast, you can enjoy a new interview with Ralph on CraveOnline, in which he talks about why he doesn’t trust the company in charge of the potential DVD release of Coonskin, and gets into the history of Hey Good Lookin‘.
You can also purchase Bakshi’s 35th Anniversary edition of Wizards on blu-ray (which coincidentally goes on sale today). 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment has given Cartoon Brew nine (9) copies of the blu-ray and – surprise! – the first nine of you to correctly answer (in the comments section) a simple trivia question won one. Congrats to Blu-Ray winners: Thad, Brian Mitchell, Hammed, Robert Reynolds, Jim M, B Baker, Kevin H, Ryan and Gobo! And our thanks to 20th Century-Fox Home Entertainment!
