A Rick and Morty film could be on the way and that’s just fantastic news.

The time between Rick and Morty seasons is far too long, and when we’ve heard just about every bit of content possible about it, it’s nice to get some fresh good news.

Now we know that the cartoon series has been commissioned for plenty more seasons, with loads of episodes a piece, but beyond that, we could be getting something a little more shwifty.

As he promoted his company’s first video game, called Trover Saves The Universe, Justin Roiland hosted a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) and declared he’d ‘love’ to make a film out of his beloved series.

A fan asked him:

Will we get a feature length Rick and Morty film ever? A rated R film that’s totally bananas?

To which he candidly replied:

I would love to do that, yeah. Hmm. Hmmmmmm.”

It goes without saying that this revelation went down pretty well with fans, as they took to their keyboards to tell him exactly how much they’d like this to happen.

Basically a lot.

Meanwhile, back to the episodes, it was recently revealed that both Roiland and Dan Harmon were intensely interested in making an episode with Kanye West.

At the WarnerMedia Upfront presentation on the 15th May, Roiland and Harmon showed the teaser trailer which gave essentially nothing away, before talking for a short while.

As they spoke, the subject was brought to Kanye West, when the two began to wax lyrical about the rapper and producer.

Speaking of Yeezy at the WarnerMedia event, Roiland revealed:

We f*cking love Kanye, man. Ye is a fucking kindred spirit, genius, visionary. If that guy had the support to do all the ideas he has in his head, he’d be f*cking Elon Musk 2.0.

Taking advantage of the 70 episode green light that they got for Rick and Morty, Harmon then chipped in, saying:

I’m giving him an episode, I’m making it official. We have 70, he can have one. Kanye, you can have an episode.”

Kanye is yet to respond, but he has previously stated that he’s a big fan of the show, tweeting:

This could get interesting…
