DigitalSpy: Hannibal panel at Comic-Con: Everything you need to know in our live blog

01:18There will be a three-year time jump between episodes seven and eight, Dancy confirms. Will is somewhat more settled and well-adjusted, “but that doesn’t last very long, that domestic retreat that he’s found”.


01:16Will has just got the crap kicked out of him again and again this season – “It’s only just getting started!” Dancy interjects.


01:16Armitage didn’t revisit past portrayals of Dolarhyde, because he didn’t want to be influenced, but “I probably will go and watch those movies now”.


01:15“Why am I wearing flowers on my head?” Armitage asks. “I don’t know!” Dancy admits. Fuller says that the flowers represent the floral beauty and elegance of the fandom, which is adorable.


01:13“It’s exciting to get into the Red Dragon story, given the dynamic we have between Hannibal and Will,” says Fuller. “Will Graham is looking at Francis Dolarhyde as a version of Hannibal that he might be able to save, and Hannibal is looking at Dolarhyde as a version of Will that he might be able to corrupt.”


01:12“It’s an emotional thing for all of us,” Dancy says, “and it’s not over in the sense that we were fully committed and living this thing for several years, and that is still true right now in this moment.”


01:10Fuller confirms that Netflix passed on season four because Amazon already had the streaming rights. Meanwhile, Amazon actually were keen, but they wanted to do it immediately, and Fuller wasn’t comfortable with the timeframe they offered.


01:10“The way this season ends” paves the way for a potential movie, Fuller says, and both Dancy and Mikkelsen are very keen on the idea.

EW: Bryan Fuller hopes to launch ‘a new version’ of Hannibal after the series finale

NBC canceled Hannibal in June, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the story as told by showrunner Bryan Fuller is over: He thinks there could be a future for the drama, which features Mads Mikkelsen as the title character.

“I think this finale wraps up the television series in a really good way and also is a platform for a launch in a new version of telling the story,” Fuller shared when he dropped by the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday.

Fuller tweeted July 6 that Amazon and Netflix have passed on streaming the show’s fourth season, but clarified that they’re “still investigating possibilities.”

Whatever happens, however, fans still have at least a few episodes left: Season 3 concludes Aug. 27.

Yahoo: Bryan Fuller’s Hoping For ‘Hannibal’ Feature Film

Fannibals, take heart! (Not literally, of course.) In a Comic-Con interview with Yahoo TV, Hannibal mastermind, Bryan Fuller, revealed that he’s weighing several potential avenues for continuing the show now that NBC has officially canceled it.

One of those avenues would potentially be a standalone theatrical film. “The idea for Season 4 that we were intending to do could go into a film very easily,” Fuller teases, adding that he “can’t say too much about it, because it will spoil the end of this season.” That, and there are also additional rights issues to sort out, as he currently only has the ability to tell stories about Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham in the television realm. Still, Fuller’s optimism should feed the souls and stomachs of Hannibal devotees worried that the Season 3 finale will also be a permanent end.

Fuller also makes it clear that he’d welcome Fannibal support in showing the appetite for more Hannibal, up to and including mailing body parts to the studio. “A very clear message would be sent about the dangers of not doing a fourth season,” he says laughing. He’s also quick to reassure viewers that Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen would continue to be part of the show no matter where or in what format it returns. Waiter, we’d like to order a fourth helping of Hannibal now, if you please.

Hannibal airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.

EW: Hannibal could live on as a feature film

Hannibal descended onto Comic-Con and the Fannibals came out in huge numbers to show their support for the cancelled (but not yet gone) drama.

The panel featured Hugh Dancy, Bryan Fuller, producer Martha De Laurentiis, and new cast member Richard Armitage (who brought out a stuffed red dragon to represent his character). All were bestowed with flower crowns by the fans, which Fuller said represent the “floral beauty of the fandom and our appreciation for their support.”

Moderated by EW’s Jeff Jensen, here’s what the panel revealed:

— The big question mark is whether the show will live on after NBC announced its cancelation a few weeks ago. Fuller says that Netflix passed and Amazon wanted to go back into production too early, so they’re still exploring options, including a potential movie: “We are still looking. We don’t have a lot of answers and we’re looking at the possibility of a feature. Hugh and Mads are very committed to the show and would love to continue with the show, so the way this season ends, there may be an opportunity for a little break and hopefully we’ll find a way to bring Mads and Hugh back to you.”

—No, Will’s not dead. The show will take a three-year time jump between the July 16 and July 23 episodes, and they’ll find Will enjoying a new reality after escaping the world of Hannibal Lecter. “Will has fully retreated from the world of Hannibal, and he has found a life for himself and indeed a wife for himself,” says Dancy—but, he adds, Will’s “domestic retreat” doesn’t last very long.

—Armitage’s Red Dragon will be a unique take on the familiar story of Francis Dolarhyde. He took cues from the books, actively avoiding Manhunter and the other films, and says he’ll show more of the Dragon’s skin than we might expect. “There’s something about Dolarhyde which has a kind of innocence to him, which sounds odd considering how complicated and how dark his world is. But it was always fluctuating between an innocent, childlike mind and a every complicated man, and so I spent half of this series naked…wearing the tattoo, which I guess how Dolarhyde felt, is a kind of clothing to him.” (“You’re welcome,” joked Fuller about the nudity.)

—Fuller even made light of the show’s dialogue, which can occasionally be too intelligent for its own good. “There are some scenes that we’re watching that we’re like, what did we mean!?” he remarked as Dancy laughed and nodded. “I think I knew what I was doing when I wrote this scene…but we look at the scene and go, wow that’s pretentious.”

—An audience member asked what the group would miss most, should the show not find a second home after NBC. “The connection that we’ve had with this community has been overwhelming and supportive. I feel like we’re all going to take Fannibals with us wherever we go,” said Fuller. “Literally,” added Dancy.

–Fuller says he wanted to keep the promise of not telling rape stories in Dolarhyde’s tale: “It became more about the assault on the family unit than the woman in the family unit … It just felt like we listened very carefully to our audience and we know who our audience is. And I think you should only do a rape story when you can dedicate a lot of real estate to exploring exactly what sort of violation that means for everybody involved in the situation. So often on television, they don’t, and it makes it thin and shallow and lazy,” he said to huge cheers from the crowd. “We minimized a bit and we didn’t really pronounce that too much. It’s there if you want to see if, but I didn’t want to see it myself.”

Variety: Bryan Fuller Teases ‘Hannibal’ Movie at Comic-Con

Bryan Fuller and the cast of “Hannibal” stopped by Comic-Con to answer one question on fans’ minds: will “Hannibal” find a new home?

“We are still looking,” Fuller said, accompanied by Hugh Dancy, Richard Armitage and exec producer Martha de Laurentiis on the Saturday evening panel in San Diego, Calif. “We don’t have a lot of answers and we’re looking at the possibility of a feature.”

Though Netflix and Amazon passed on more episodes of “Hannibal,” following NBC’s cancelation of the daring series after three seasons, the panelists are hopeful for the show finding more life, whether its picked up elsewhere or wrapped up as a film.

“We’d like to continue with the show so the way this season ends, there may be an opportunity for a little break and then hopefully we’ll find a way to bring Mads [Mikkelsen] and Hugh [Dancy] back to you,” Fuller announced to the audience, which was full of fans donning flower crowns (a sign of the passion and devotion to the series) and holding up signs that read, “”Fannibals Forever.”

“NBC allowed us to do some crazy sh-t for three years,” Fuller said, applauding NBC, despite axing the series. As for Netflix and Amazon passing on a pickup, Fuller clued in the crowd.

“Netflix couldn’t do it because of the Amazon streaming,” the creator explained, referring to Amazon holding the rights to the first three seasons. “Amazon would liked to have done it but they wanted to do it very quickly and I wanted to be able to get all the scripts in advance before we starting shooting…the schedule with their desire to put it on immediately was just impossible for us.”

Fuller said that if his series doesn’t land elsewhere, what he’d miss most are the fans. “For me, it would be the fannibals and the connection that we’ve had with this very special fan community that has been so overwhelmingly supportive and passionate. First and foremost is the fannibals, a close second is the cast.”

“To be part of something that feels like it was so embraced and engaged with,” Dancy chimed in, “has been an amazing experience.”

Confirming that he’d want to continue with “Hannibal,” if it does indeed find a new venue, Dancy added, “It’s an emotional thing for all of us. It’s not over in the sense that we were fully committed and were living this thing for several years and that’s still true in this moment.”
