Well Folks, Between February 2009 and November 2024 or whatever you or I would chose, if I might be a movie writer/director, I think I’m gonna do the biggest, greatest, coolest, most awesome, most spectacular, most ambitious, most groundbreaking, most totally epic, most amazing, most elaborate, most innovative, most monumental and most ultimate achievement in movie/visual effects/animation history….my epic 9-part film saga, Dexter’s Odyssey.
In it, Dexter Odysseus Zarus, being taken care for since childbirth by the snake from Kung Fu Panda, Master Viper, branded with the childhood prophecy that he would one day destroy the cartoon, nerdy, dark sorcerer, Mandark (who is actually the exact Mandark in his black and red caped supervillain outfit with tights, a black and red cape, and pointy claw gloves from Dexter’s Laboratory: Ego Trip), the Dark Lord of Astronoma and personification of ABSOLUTE EVIL, and given a enchanted mighty sword with great and powerful magic called the Sword of the Phoenix by his father (who bought it in an eBay internet auction), is a very popular high school student, going through a well done senior year.
But…after a disastrous field trip to Zant’azar, the main colony of the Anteanites (those exact insect characters from the 2006 film, The Ant Bully) which abruptly ended in an assault from a massive enemy onslaught of Strong Borgs, Vargs (those raptors from Jurassic Park III, but feathered in Dexter’s Odyssey), Trolls, and even the giant 60 feet long (the size of Spinosaurus) war dinosaur, the Terakils (the exact male Tyrannosaurus Rex from the Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III, but with three fingers on each hand, instead of two on T-Rex) led by Mandark, He decided to fufill his potential to end his evil rule and his war to conquer and enslave the free peoples of Timboxia (which is the fantasy realm populated with humans, dinosaurs, cartoon characters, anthropomorphic ants and anthropomorphic penguins and other different races and beings), once and for all.
Based on his reasonable request from his school and the peoples of Timboxia to destroy Mandark, he dropped out of high school unless Mandark would be destroyed with Dexter’s magic sword, joins Master Viper, his 3 other pets, Tearak the Troodon, Max, a Saber toothed cat, and his trusty steed, A Ferrucutus named Styrack (a Ferrucutus is a horned dinosaur from the World Of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island), Zoc, the Wizard Anteanite, his assistant, Hova, Zoc’s friend, Spindle, Fugax, Beetle, Caterpillar, Fly, Jimmy, and Dexter’s brothers, Alex and Billy, and together they set out for a perilous and totally epic journey to the dark, shadow-filled land of Astronoma.
Well, The Caravan of Timboxia, grew to 20 people (by adding, Becky and Glenn, those exact girls who gave Mandark a bath in Ego Trip, Andrew Quintus, the Penguites (or Peng’uai) from the 2007 movie, Surf’s Up, Cody Maverick, Lani, Big Z, and Chicken Joe), and together, they encountered dinosaurs, machines, and others, as in…
In Dexter’s Odyssey: Episode I: The Magic Sword, Dexter’s Odyssey Episode II: The Wrath of Mandark, and Dexter’s Odyssey Episode III: The Caravan of Timboxia, They encountered Mojo Jojo, the Vargs led by Durok and his mate, Kala, survived an Iguanodon Stampede, watched Mandark and his big game party bringing down a herd of Brontosaurs (those exact brontosaurs from the 2005 remake of King Kong), etc.
In Dexter’s Odyssey: Episode IV: Prince Telchan, they help the heir to the throne of Cotolamia, Prince Telchan to free the Cototlamians, Telchan’s people from the Melchanezon, a Spanish-influenced race.
In Dexter’s Odyssey: Episode V: The Mask of the Holophantom, They fought Demongo the Holophantom (the exact Demongo from Samurai Jack) who is searching for his stolen mask.
In Dexter’s Odyssey: Episode VI: The Legend of King Kong, to get away from the violence of a Massive Astronomean Assault on Lord Linwood Darrow’s dig site (Lord Darrow, before he was killed by Mandark, have dug up a statue of the Beast God, Kong, the 8th wonder of the World.), The Caravan of Timboxia and a film producer discovers an island populated by dinosaurs and a gigantic 25 foot silverback gorilla, Kong, who captures Lani the Penguin.
Kong was captured and taken to the city land of Townsville in chains where he breaks loose and creates havoc, only to be killed in the end by Dexter.
In Dexter’s Odyssey: Episode VII: The Son of Kong, The Caravan of Timboxia and the film producer, along with a Strong Borg named Helstrom, returns to Skull Island and find Kong’s 12 foot tall albino son, Kiko before all of them (except for Helstrom, who was killed by Viper) escaping the island as it sank.
In Dexter’s Odyssey: Episode VIII: The Night of the Living Droid, They traveled to the city of the Gangstalings, a community of urban street gangs of all races and color, and must free them from the evil General Greivous-look-a-like alien droid cyborg, Lord Wilhelm Astronomenov and his army of NERDS (or, if translated, Nebula Enhanced Robot Destroyers).
And…In Dexter’s Odyssey: Episode IX: The Final Battle, the fate of Timboxia should be decided while the armies of the Dark Lord Mandark are massing to strike the final death blow to the Timboxians, a battle where the future of Timboxia should be decided. Are Mandark and his armies going to prevail? Or are Dexter and the free peoples of Timboxia going to prevail? It’s in the balance.
Eventually, Mandark was destroyed by Viper (who using her fanged mouth grabs Mandark by the torso, as he strikes Dexter with Force Lightning, and she threw him into his palace’s reactor shaft; Mandark’s death is marked by an explosion of force lightning.). Dexter and Glenn the Brunette declared their love for each other. Dexter graduated from High School, and all members of the Caravan of Timboxia survived and lived happily ever after.
On the face of it, Dexter’s Odyssey might seem to have much going for it: All nine films will be shot on 24P High Definition Digital Video Cameras in an aspect ratio of 2.40:1, and for a total budgetary production cost of one billion dollars over a 36-month production period from January 2013 to December 2015 in Maryland, the US, New Zealand, Scotland and other shooting locations.
My own mini-major studio, the Tim Box Company (which I will open in February 2009) will produce, make and release Dexter’s Odyssey.
It will have a hi-tech, Who Framed Roger Rabbit-esque, seamless, flawless, groundbreaking, innovative, ambitious and convincing blend of live action, CGI, visual effects, 2D Traditional Hand Drawn Cartoon Animation (which will be done by Genndy Tartakovsky, Craig McCracken and Chris Savino in the same animation/art style as those in Dexter’s Laboratory: Ego Trip, The Powerpuff Girls Movie and Samurai Jack), great artistry and other VFX and animation techniques both old and new.
The cast will range from newcomers to familiar faces (you know like, Eddie Deezen, Lucy Liu, Robert Smigel, Nicholas Cage, Julia Roberts, Tom Kenny, Jeff Glen Bennett and others).
The music will be an original score for all nine films by composers like Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, Mark Mancina, James Horner, Michael Giacchino, Danny Elfman and/or James L. Venable and, like Samurai Jack, will blend the traditional orchestra, with world-beat-flavored music.
The film series will be co-financed and made by Tim Box, the Film Industry, the Animation Industry and the Visual Effects Industry.
Dexter's Odyssey will have a gigantically massive promotional, publicity, and marketing campaign.

Dexter’s Odyssey will be shot digitally, edited digitally, its sound effects produced digitally and projected entirely digitally but the effects and animation (which will be blend with the live action) will be done both traditionally and digitally.
Dexter’s Odyssey’s development and making will be fully detailed and accounted in two versions…one, both a book and a documentary series called Visions of Timboxia: Art, Wizardry, and Magic in the making of Dexter’s Odyssey, and another, in the tradition of Cloverfield, the Blair Witch Project, a DVD documentary on the making of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace called the Beginning, and the made for TV movie, RKO 281 (on the making and battle over Citizen Kane) titled, Timbox129: Portrait of a Young Filmmaker and his Fantasy World.
