LAD Who Voices Rick And Morty Actually Got Drunk During Production For Season Three

While we're still waiting in agony for the latest season of Rick and Morty, Adult Swim has been giving us tiny insights into how the next instalment was created.

Luckily, they threw us a bone on April Fool's Day and debuted the first episode, showing Rick breaking free from the Galactic Federation and becoming the head of the family.

We know Rick is a very high functioning alcoholic on the show, but it's been revealed that the man who voices him and Morty, Justin Roiland, actually got drunk to play the character.

Check out the hilarious clip here:

You can see associate producer Sydney Ryan trying to keep Roiland from getting absolutely floored with booze. He goes against the crew's wishes when he downs his fourth tequila shot.

Sydney says the session was: "by far, the least productive, messiest recording day we have ever had."

It's expected the next episode for season three will be released sometime this summer (real specific) after this tweet:

But if you're wondering why the hell has it taken this long; well it's all because of the writing. Co-creator Dan Harmon told an audience at the Sundance Film Festival: "[Me and Justin Roiland] have fights all the time and then we have fights about why we're having fights. Well, we didn't fight during season two, that's why it's taking longer! All this fighting! So OK, let's stop fighting!"

That led to a lot of worry that disputes between the pair would derail the show altogether. But luckily, Dan posted a long explanation on Twitter to put everyone at ease.

He said: "I understand and we are flattered that in an information vacuum, with the show so late, any morsel of info [sic] is going to have huge weight. But the truth is not dramatic. It's quite boring. We love our show. It's a weird show that we struggle to not overthink OR underthink. As for now, they're drawing it.

"We don't update on exactly where every episode is in pipeline for two reasons (uh oh sub enumeration): One is that we want you harassing the bosses as opposed to hard-at-work artists and editors, or writers that finished months ago. The other is that it is out of our jurisdiction to discuss schedule. That's Adult Swim's biz [sic]. Totally unrelated. Hence the info shortage."

For those who can't wait any longer, they might be able to relax in a newly released virtual reality game based on the Rick and Morty universe.

Adult Swim has teamed up with Owlchemy Labs to create the epic universe which Rick and Morty jump through and you get to play one of the two characters.

On Owlchemy Lab's website it said: "We've been working in secret for months, optimizing plumbus physics and working on the intricacies of Rick's flask. Now we're ready to give you all a hint of what's to come! (Spoiler alert: you can totally jump through portals in VR!)"


So if you want to squanch your way through the endless dimensions of Rick and Morty's world then you can get the game on HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
