Code Lyoko's second installment (1977)
Plot
While Jeremie searches for Aelita's human memory in Lyoko, Ulrich is confronted with a relational problem since Yumi often hangs out with William Dunbar. At the same time, Odd and Sam meet Theo Gauthier (Jeff Goldblum) and his little sister Laura (Carrie Fisher). The first seduces Sissi but is in love with Yumi, the second seduces and loves Jeremiah. After a week of imbalance in love, Ulrich and Aelita, with Odd and Sam, bring their friends back to their senses with more or less success. As for XANA, it cooks a very ingenious plan.
...
During driving lessons, Ulrich and William fight to impress Yumi, especially as their respective parents are present. William passes the test while Ulrich fails miserably. Yumi then refuses to be William's girlfriend, pretending she was only hanging out with him out of friendship. But the pot-de-glue is not convinced and allows himself to insult Ulrich (He calls it "underside of moldy foreskin.") The samurai then inflicts a severe correction in front of everyone, despite the physical Herculean of his rival. The class officer (Jason Robards) then arrests Ulrich, but his father (Clint Eastwood), a former colonel of the Canadian Army, intervenes and releases him, having heard the insult swung by William. The latter then gets up, manages to tear the door of the vehicle and sends it on Ulrich. The latter dodges it and it is Milly who receives it on her stomach, causing her navel to bleed and sending her to hospital. The families of the rivals then point to the office of Jean-Pierre Delmas. In the face of Walter's strong arguments (Ulrich's father) and the whimsical attitude of the Dunbar, Ulrich is only stuck for 4 hours and William is suspended for 3 weeks for breaking equipment and hurting a student. However, shouts are heard, followed by an explosion. Ulrich looks out the window and then rushes out of the principal's office. XANA has materialized a Krabe in the real world and uses it to try to kill the Lyoko Warriors. Jeremy and Aelita go to the lab alone while Ulrich and Yumi try to neutralize the creature. William insists on helping the Lyoko warriors, only Odd lets him lend a hand. Jeremiah and Aelita arrive at the lab, but one of the scanners is destroyed because of the Krabe. Aelita must dive alone. Jeremy hurries as another Krabe comes out of the second scanner. The young elf lands when a third Krabe destroys the last scanner. She must turn off the tower without help and make a return to the past. She also wears a more modern combat outfit like the season 4's one, except it exposes her waist, including the navel and the abs.
...
Ulrich and Yumi head to Yumi's home as the second Krabe shows up. Odd and William take care of the first Krabe and destroy it by sending the car of the course to explode on him. Jim sees the third Krabe heading towards Place des Arts.
...
Aelita, hidden behind an iceberg, organizes her plan. Indeed, several Kankrelats block access to the tower. Jeremy sends him a motorcycle to a wheel he has just designed (The Overbike). The girl then rushes on the flock and avoids them painfully (Her belly get shot) before entering the tower and disables it, while Ulrich tries to protect Yumi and his family from the Krabe. The return to the past is started and brings the heroes back to Ulrich's turn. The latter then succeeds. William congratulates him surprisingly and offers him to join his bodybuilding club. The samurai accepts to Yumi's surprise.
...
Weeks later, Jeremy despairs to find the memory of Aelita in Lyoko, but discovers that his girlfriend has the keys to Lyoko, which allows to be free of the supercomputer and to walk in the global NCP, but the young girl ignores how to use it. He also discovers the existence of a fifth territory named "Carthage", which is located in the heart of Lyoko. As going back to her room, she feels a short pain in her belly. During her sleep, her navel became red and is poorly increasing temperature.
...
As Jeremy try to find her memory, Aelita kills the time at the pool. While she's swimming, she feels a diarrhea-like pain in her tummy and run to the bathroom. When she's there, the pain disappears and is replaced by a huge peristaltism. Her abs become red and her navel starts to bleed. She then faints because of pain. Something alive goes out of her navel and roars.
...
In the night, Aelita wakes up at the hospital, lied with her sister Milly. They are watching their bellies : they're all blue. Aelita turns suddenly sad and then rubs Milly's abs. She reveals what happens to her during the last summer and Lyoko's secret. Milly answers that she already know about Lyoko. They are hugging in love.
...
Meanwhile, Ulrich and Yumi walks to the hospital for visiting Aelita and Milly, but the japanese girl heards something strange. A creature then attacks her : it's a Rampant, which is the thing who's comes out of Aelita's navel at the pool. Ulrich try to take the Rampant off Yumi's waist/ribs, but the creature strangles him. William then arrives as he was going to visit Milly for apologizes, he helps Ulrich and Yumi to fight the rampant. William finally kill it as skewer its skull with a crowbar, after few and long minutes. Ulrich and Yumi thanks him, he apologizes the young geisha for annoying her and the samouraï for trying to stole his girlfriend. They become friends.
...
Shortly after, Ulrich and Yumi tell to Aelita what happens. The young elf is very worried and takes Milly's hand.
...
1 month later, Aelita gets back to McGill after being enough recovered. She and Milly are in the latter's room, both in bras and shorts, talking about their crush as rubbing each other's abs with lotion for a total recorver. William suddenly enters the room with a T800-like face. He knocks out the both sisters and grabs Aelita on his shoulder. Another William appears in frnt of him and gets scared, revealing that the first one is a polymorphic clone. The real William gets pushed to the wall while the fake William starts running to the factory.
...
The real William wakes out and fellow the lyoko-warriors to the factory. When they arrive, the clone has dissipated in metal parts it turns into a Terminator. While William and Odd are fighting the Terminator, Ulrich and Yumi are send by Jeremy into Lyoko, where they discovers their own season 4's outfits. Yumi, like Aelita, see her waist being exposed, but oddly, she loves and enjoy to show her belly button to Ulrich, who's laughing because Yumi's passion is too much weird. Then, John Lennon appears as himself severly correcting Joan Lin that, in the screenplay, Yumi is not suppose to enjoy showing her tummySimulation Regroupement de prêt. He then puts out a paper board to marks his future movies' « 4th wall's breaks », who will became a recurring gag.
...The filming and the story continues... And bla bla bla ! I'm too bored for this plot ! I'm gonna edit it ! The movie finish as Aelita became human even if XANA gets free as stoling her keys. The lyoko-warriors are starting to watch Franz Hopper's records just as the ending credits, showing We Will Rock You and We are the champions' promos, starts.

Re: What if John Lennon was the creator of Code Lyoko ?

Godzilla vs. Lennon's Toons (2009)
The next ToonVerse's installment is another Godzilla crossover. This time, Godzilla serves as antagonist.
Plot
1955. Godzilla and Anguirus are fighting before getting frozen in an iceberg created by avalanche. 54 years later, in summer 2009, the iceberg approaches US waters and collides with an nuclear submarine. Godzilla and Anguirus are released from the iceberg and both absorbs nuclear energy from the submarine, changing their appareance (2004 look). However, global warming alters on them, shrunking them to 2 meters. They destroy the submarine and swim to Western coast.
...
Meanwhile, in Montréal, John Lennon and his toons from Code Lyoko, All Grown Up and Total Drama Island are living good. Lyoko-warriors are however frustated to be considered as sex-symbols with cute belly buttons and not as real cartoon heroes. Phil and Lil both try to relax them, as they are considered as the prettiest characters of their series because of their navels too, with Kimi. Duncan takes a sadisctic pleasure to mocking Lyoko-warriors.
...
Godzilla and Anguirus send a calling roar to their kaijus friends from Japan as they arrive in Vancouver. They are walking to nuclear plants, but they scaring people in streets. Police and army arrive and attack them in defense, but it provocating thekaijus who are killing them with fire breath and/or physically. King Ghidorah, Mothra, Rodan and Zilla, all measuring 2 meters because of global warming, arrive and finish the job. They get uranium from nuclear plants, but the metal is poor in radioactivity. The kaijus are angry and burn all of West End disctrict, killing teenagers and gay people (I'm not homophobic, West End is Vancouver's gay village.).
...
John watchs the news and contacts Canadian and US armies to negociate a battle plan. John agrees to send his toons to fight the kaijus after some discussion. The latters agree despite initial sceptism.
...
The toons are in helicopter who goes to 30,000 feet. They make a halo fall on Banff, Alberta. Duncan deals his, but his friends get hurt. After walking in forest, they arrive on a lake where the kaijus arrive soon. Duncan puts some napalm bombs on the top of cliff. Toons fight against Kaijus on a soundtrack with Motley Crue' Kickstart My Heart. After long minutes of action, the toons espace on helicopter after Duncan detonates bombs that create rocks sprotching kaijus, but they survive. They grown 100 meters in Ontario.
...
The kaijus arrive in Montréal and create death and horror in downtown. Godzilla take a third of the Tour de la Bourse and throw it on Square Victoria, killing military soldiers. They leaving the town in river after sploding battleships. Next morning, pacing is horrible in Montréal. There is a lot of death people. In Olympic Stadium, John and Aelita found Milly's corspe. Duncan flees to Québec City to kill Godzilla by his own.
...
John and the other toons came in Québec City with a blowing up ray. John grows the lyoko-warriors in a plasma cage after the kaijus arrive to Québec City Summer Festival. They are fighting like in Kingsman, but there is more violence and brutality. At the end, Godzilla is the only Kaiju alive. He destroys the ray, shrunking toons in normal size. Before Godzilla stomps the toons, they are revealing secrets. Lil is lesbian, Duncan have put estrogen in Ulrich and Odd's ultrasound gel (fatting their belly skin) and steroids in Yumi and Aelita's same gel, creating hair on their navel and abs. Lyoko-warriors are Deadly angry at Duncan for fucking up their tummies. Suddenly, Godzilla's sons, Minilla and Godzilla Junior, both appear and communicate with their father. They supplicate* him to leave John and the toons alive. They attacked kaijus because they were scared. Godzilla see tanks and soldiers with guns. He leaves Québec City to stop this war.
...
6 months later, Québec people hardly forgive Godzilla for killing families. In Nunavut, John, Paul and Ringo saw Godzilla and his sons contouring North America by Artic* Ocean to return in Japan. In Alaska, Godzilla turns around to Americans and roars before the end credits.

-Dude' Where's My Horse (Both parts)

Re: What if John Lennon was the creator of Code Lyoko ?

2D/3D animated reboot (1999 theatrical film and 2000-03 sequel TV series)

Code Lyoko (1999)
Production
After Code Lyoko Godzilla's release, John Lennon wants to restart the project that makes him more famous then before. With animation experience from Rugrats and after watching some Pixar's shorts, he decides to product and direct an animated remake. Pre-production starts in 1992, with Lightstorm Entertainment and Hanna-Barbera as producers and Universal Pictures and Paramount Pictures as distributors. Paul Verhoeven serves as writer and producer. However, there is no CGI studio who is interested in the movie, especially since Pixar joins up Disney for Toy Story. Production is putted on hiatus in 1993. But in 1994 (the next year), DreamWorks SKG is founded. Its founders Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen are hiring Lennon as their first president. John then restarts the production. Spielberg and Katzenberg both join him and DreamWorks, Amblin Entertainment and Nickelodeon Movies are added to production companies. The film's release is scheduled for Christmas 1998. DreamWorks bought 40% of Pacific Data Images.
...
John moves the production in France, because of his knowledge of future. He meets Thomas Romain and Tania Palumbo, 20-year old animator students who both created Les enfants font leur cinéma short movies, which characters' design have been inspired on Code Lyoko's stars. He also hires French animation studios Antefilms and France Animation to create animation for the movie, but the results are disappointing John, because they are not more design then Season 1-like graphics. Pacific Data Images then completes the CGI graphics, who looks like Season 2 after it, while Antefilms and France Animation take 1 year to polish characters' 2D look, to get Season 3 and 4-like designs.
...
John Lennon and Sarah Halley Finn start the voice casting in 1997. Leonardo DiCaprio is hired to voice Ulrich Stern, but after recording 20% of Ulrich's dialogue, John isn't convinced by DiCaprio's voice, which sounds a bit too young for the character's stature. John dismisses DiCaprio and then hires Casper Van Dien, who portrays Johnny Rico in Starship Troopers. After recording 5% of Ulrich's dialogue for testing, John is convinced. For Yumi Ishiyama, John doesn't consider necessary to hire a Japanese or even Asian actress to voice her. John auditionned Denise Richards, wanting Patrick Muldoon to voice William Dunbar in the series, to recreate Johnny-Carmen-Zander love triangle in Starship Troopers, but he finally leaves off this idea. Finally, Yumi Ishiyama's voice is Neve Campbell, who would appear alongside Denise Richards in Wild Things the next year. Odd Della Robbia's voice was supposed to be Paul Walker, but John prefers Macaulay Culkin. Jeremy and Aelita are both voiced by Hayden Christensen and Kate Winslet. Anna Faris is the only choice for Sissi Delmas' voice. Jim Moralès and J-P Delmas were supposed to be voiced by J.K. Simmons and Bryan Cranston respectively, but their voice are finally Mike Myers and Armand Assante. For the series, William Dunbar would be voiced by Keanu Reeves after the latter's performance in Matrix.
...
Animation is completed very fast because of a huge crew. Vocal recording takes place from August to December 1998, after actors get coached by Jean Reno and Gérard Depardieu to speak all with a French accent. Release date is delayed to June 1999, but John decides to avoid competition with The Phantom Menace and delayes again the date to October 9th 1999, his own birthday and also the day when the plot starts.
...
The MPAA rated the film PG-13 because of intense violence, language and some mature elements. After being re-edited, it gets a PG rating.

Plot

...
Season 4 receives positive reviews for effects, animation, plot, tone, score and vocal performances of Van Dien, Reynolds, Campbell, Portman, Christensen, Manson, Myers, Faris and Reeves, but criticism was aimed to Jeremy's behavior, short action scenes and lack of lyoko-warriors appearing togheter on Lyoko.

The First Master of Spinjitzu created the 4 Golden Weapons : the Scythe of Quakes, the Shurikens of Ice, the Nunchucks of Lightning, and the Sword of Fire. Two unknown armies engaged a fight against him, forcing him to split Ninjago in 2 parts. A few years later, he gots two sons from a Japanese wife : Garmadon and Wu. One day, Wu loses a training weapon and was too lame to get it back by himself. Garmadon gets it, but a non-natural snake bites him. Garmadon takes years to turn evil because of the snake's venom, becoming Lord Garmadon. Wu must fights him, but Garmadon got stroked by a lightning, disfiguring him severly. Garmadon falls shortly after in the Underworld. 10 years later, Wu recruits 4 students.
...
Going back to live-action
Wu approaches a blacksmith shop. Its owners, Kai and Nya, both get their lifes changed : Nya is captured by Skeletons Under Garmadon's autority and Kai is therefore recruited by Wu for training. Nights later, Kai fights 3 ninjas, but Wu stops the fight. The ninjas are his others students : Jay, Zane and Cole. Wu makes them the Masters of Elements : Fire for Kai, Lightning for Jay, Ice for Zane and Quakes for Cole. They start their journey to save Nya.
...
The Ninjas recover the Golden Weapons and found the Underworld. They fight the Skeletons, but Lord Garmadon gets their weapons from Samukai, the second-in-command. But Samukai, with four arms, wants to use the weapons against Garmadon, but their powers are too expensive. He dies in an explosion thats creates a portal for the Dark Dimension that Garmadon takes to escape the Ninjas. Nya is saved and the Ninjas get back in the Real World.
...
Weeks later, Garmadon have been seen in a village. The Ninjas find out that it's Lloyd Garmadon, Garmadon's son and Wu's nephew. They punish him for his bad behavior, but Lloyd later walks in mountains and finds a snake tomb, He opens it, realizing the Hypnobrai tribe who follows him to thank him for freeing them. They took the village, but the Ninjas fight them and win.
...
Two days later, Zane follows a falcon in the forest and finds Lloyd's new treehouse. Tomorrow, Zane and the ninjas destroy it, but the Snakes have burned down their mojo. The Ninjas are angry against Zane, but Wu orders them to apologize him, but Zane flees. Meanwhile, Lloyd is vanished by the new Hypnobraid leader, after a fight for leadership, because of his behavior. Zane came back and the Ninjas are sorry, but Zane said that the Falcon shows him a new home for them : The Destiny's Bounty. Later in night, Lloyd heards them and flees.
...
Lloyd then releases the Fangpyre snake tribe. Jay's parents, Ed and Edna, visit him and his friends. Later in night, the Fangpyres attack Ed and Edna. Tomorrow, the Ninjas' dragons abandons them for their moult. The Ninjas visit Jay's parents, but they are turning into snakes because of Fangpyre's venom. The Ninjas fight them and create vehicles with their weapons. They took Fangpyre's scepter to save Ed and Edna from their transformation. After this, Nya looses it to the Fangpyres.
