It’s a rare moment when you get to sit in the same room with a star like Pac-Man.
But when the superstar gets to come and see your work, it’s usually the most memorable moment of your life.
“I get to meet the cast, which is always so important for me because I want to know what they’re like,” Pac-Maniacs longtime co-writer Mike Flanagan tells Billboard.
“And when you sit in that room, it makes you feel like you’re really part of the world.”
And for $49,999, you can actually sit in on a Pac-man meeting with director David Lynch and producer John Landis.
And because the show is set in the fictional city of Pacman, the two must have a good time hanging out, too.
Flanagan, a former producer on “Downton Abbey,” says Lynch and Landis have been friends for more than 20 years.
“They know each other from their own films and television shows,” Flanagan says.
“The two of them have become very good friends.
And they just really want to do this together, so I’m super excited.”
Pac-Men fans can get a first look at the film’s upcoming animated short “Pac-Man in the City” this spring.
And Flanagan is excited to be working with Lynch on the animated shorts.
“We’ve been working together for a long time, so it’s pretty cool that we get to collaborate,” he says.
The film will focus on the adventures of Pac-Mart employees who travel to Pac-City to compete in the Pac-Worlds.
The animated shorts will be released on April 30.
“It’s kind of like a family,” Flangan says of the Pac Man collaboration.
“David Lynch, John Landin, and I are all really excited to do it.”
And while the movie will only feature some of the actors featured in the original Pac-mania cartoon series, Flanagan hopes it will still be a fun trip to Pac City.
“If it’s a family reunion, it’ll be good,” he adds.
“But I don’t know if it’s going to be a family trip.”
