Dan Harmon And Company Discuss The Rick And Morty Season 5 Premiere
Season 5 Episode 1 office and MortyThis season were just released. With a show that has been in the air for 5 years, it is natural to compare previous seasons or episodes. Many fans are beginning to wonder what the show’s creators did to create this season. Dan Harmon is, without doubt, the man who has the answers, as he is the co-creator, writer, and voice actor for this series.
Harmon revealed how he keeps the illusion of age and time within the animation. According to Harmon, Rick, and Morty, season 5 episodes are much less distinct and more difficult to watch when viewed as a single episode. It becomes difficult to follow a certain chronological timeline once you have a solid foundation and loyal fans. Harmon was faced with the difficult task of implementing change and growth in characters that are somewhat stuck in the past.
Harmon spoke with Digital Spy recently and mentioned the idea that visible aging does not necessarily convey a character’s maturation or transformation. Harmon elaborated, saying, “It is extraordinary in animation because obviously, Morty must be 14 forever.” Summer is 17 for all eternity. Rick is what he is forever. […] I strongly oppose the reset button being pushed where there is no awareness of the current. It’s like cooking meat instead of smoking it. Let the flavor come naturally, and then let it change.
The change in Rick and Morty is slower than it seems, more gradual, less forceful, and natural. Harmon suggested that Morty would be more vocal against his grandfather’s cryptic tales. After all, Morty is just 14 years old. It was only natural that his rebellious nature would emerge. Harmon said, “Morty’s sick of Rick’s crap. He should. We don’t want him to wake up each morning and think, ‘I wonder how my loving grandpa plans for me. Rick doesn’t like to give up, so Morty might become less willing to follow any plan he has for the day. This could create tension in their relationship.
It seems that Adult Swim and Ricky & Morty fans have a great relationship. The network’s fifth season premiered on the “Rick and Morty Day” event. This was an event where fans could create their own version of themselves to fit into the series using a simulator called “Rick Yourself.”
This was done to create anticipation for Rick and Morty season 5, with a host of guest stars. However, fans should not be concerned about any changes to the series this season.
