I have beatsheets completed on 211-216. Have to write up the beatsheets for 217-220, but I’ve got all the beats on index cards, so it’s just a matter of finding the time to transcribe them into a document.

That’s it for now. See you all on the 16th of September!

…When I asked her if she record her lines for the movie by herself or with her fellow cast members she said in person, especially with Nolan North. “He and I almost always record together,” McKellar said. “And it’s good too because we’ve (our characters) got this romance going on and I can tell you that there’s going to be a kiss. In fact, the kiss is real. They had us kiss in the booth, which is very rare. In voiceover, they always have usually asked to kiss (the top of) our hand [demonstrates].

Episodes 110-115 are in the can, i.e. they are completed and ready to air.

Episode 116 awaits only the final on-line, i.e. the final review of the episode. This has been delayed ONLY because I’ve been out sick this week.

We do NOT yet have a pick-up beyond episode 210, but our bosses have told us to start blocking out episodes 211-220 in anticipation of one.

Episode 211 - We’ve broken this story. I still need to find time to write up the Beat Outline, though I have it all on index cards.

Young Justice Update from the WORD OF GOD himself.

Greg Weisman:

Young Justice Update Good news and bad news today…

Here’s the good news.

Coming out of Cartoon Network’s upfronts last week (and Geoff John’s comments on it since) there’s been some confusion about what’s happening on the Young Justice front.

What amuses me a bit is how CONFIDENT some posters on various message boards are about their interpretation of the reports. CONFIDENT and generally wrong.

So here’s what’s going on:

Young Justice has aired nine episodes of our 26-episode first season. The rest will begin airing after some weeks of reruns. The schedule is Cartoon Network’s, and I’m not yet 100% clear on when we’re back up and running. Though to be fair to CN, we don’t have ANY other episodes in the can as of this moment. We’re posting episodes 10 and 11 now.

(I saw some folks protesting why we didn’t wait until ALL episodes were in the can before we began airing. All I can do is shrug. It’s not up to me, but I do wonder how the fans who were furious that they had to wait until January 2011 for Season One would feel about THAT strategy.)

So the good news: We HAVE INDEED been picked up for a second season. As of now, all CN & WB have ordered is a ten episode mini-series, “YOUNG JUSTICE: INVASION”. We’re HOPING for more than just ten eps, and I honestly think the odds are fairly good that the order will expand, but as of NOW, all we have is this ten episode order.

We immediately began work on this new season last week, and are breaking approximately (but not quite) one episode per day. The creative team is fundamentally the same as for Season One.

And though, of course, we will be introducing many new characters episodically in Season Two (just as we do episodically in Season One), I don’t want to give the impression that this is some spin-off featuring, I dunno, the League or something, in the same Earth-16 setting. Invasion IS the second season of Young Justice and absolutely features our “Team”. Episode 26 of Season One is time-stamped “December 31”. Episode 1 of Season Two will be time-stamped “January 1”, in essence picking up right where we left off.

We anticipate YJ:Invasion premiering in 2012… late first quarter, if I had to guess. Reports suggesting late 2011 are… beyond wishful thinking.

Hmmm… anything else? I feel like I’m forgetting something. But I can’t think of any other misconceptions that need correcting right now. Oh, well…

Still - Season Two. Not too shabby, huh?
