South Park Creators Are Making a Movie

South Park got renewed by Comedy Central through 2022. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone shared their delight: ” People have been talking about canceling us for 22 f***ng years.” Now, with the series going strong since 1997, they have something else in mind.

The Hollywood Reporter talked to the creators and producers of the animated series and they discussed the possibility of making a non-South Park movie for the first time in 15 years. The topic they want to explore is “cancel culture”.

“It’s new,” Stone says of cancel culture, the term used to refer to boycotts of people, places, events, some might find offensive. Cancel culture is sometimes justified, but in most cases, it is exaggerated. Stone added: I don’t want to say it’s the same as it’s always been. The kids are fucking different than us. There’s a generational thing going on.”

Trey Parker and Matt Stone met at the University of Colorado Boulder. Foul-mouthed kids built their empire via accident and their shared sense of humor. Seems like nothing has changed and the duo thinks South Park will last for another decade. The upcoming season also brings episode no 300, but no special plans are in motion. “We’ve learned the past few years to let the momentum of the season take us.”

Despite the pressure and the pure joy that South Park brings them, they are thinking of doing more. The duo wants to make another film, their last being 2004’s Team America: World Police. Stone says: “We think of ourselves as filmmakers, and it’s like, everyone is doing TV now. It’s like, movies, even though the movie business is all fucked up. And everyone will tell you don’t go into movies. We just want to do a movie.”

It’s clear that Trey Parker and Matt Stone have some great ideas, but they aren’t talking about them. Apart from the cancel culture project, they remain tight-lipped. The thing about them is that don’t make plans or rules.  “If we came up with something tomorrow, we’d do it. We don’t have any rules.” This way, the audience wants more, but if they only get more South Park that’s cool.
