If you haven’t heard the name “Oregon Trail” in a long time, here’s a quick addition: you play as a wagon leader carrying a group of Western settlers across the road. real-life road, spanning more than 2,000 miles. Since it is an educational game, its status as a nostalgic media has been cemented over the years from memories of playing it at school with friends.
Oh, and the ways you can die are pretty funny too. Gordon teases Collider that this aspect of the game would be celebrated in their adaptation. “It always has a strip of dark humor running through it, because the possibility of you dying from everything from dysentery to cutting [were high]”he’s joking.” Basically, your every action ends with death. “
Because of this, don’t expect it to be a family-friendly feature like “Lyle”. While they have yet to decide whether to aim for a PG-13 rating or an R-rating, the duo say it will be a combination of a serious musical and an eccentric comedy.
Gordon continued: “For us, it was about going back a little bit to our roots in comedy, combining it with the joy of doing a big musical, and also just the ambition to do that. take it very seriously and make a great historical expansion westward into the epic story of dying from dysentery. “
While we probably won’t be seeing this version of “Oregon Trail” anytime soon, you can watch “Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile” in theaters on October 7.
