People Are Going Absolutely Wild Over Cartman As An Adult In New South Park Movie
The first of 14 South Park movies has dropped and some people are raving about it.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
The feature-length episode sees the usual gang 40 years in the future as the world is finally hoping to be rid of the coronavirus.
We get to see what Kyle, Kenny, Stan and Cartman look like as adults and it's fair to say that Eric has had the most dramatic change after all these years.
Stan, who moved out of South Park and is now a whiskey taster, gets a call from his school mate Kyle, who tells him that Kenny, who had become a rich and famous physicist, has died.
Kyle wants to know what happened to Kenny and tries to get everyone back together for one of their quirky adventures.
However, Mr Broflovski, who has taken over from Mr Mackey as South Park Elementary School's guidance counsellor, is shocked to see that Cartman has a wife, three children and has converted to Judaism.
Kyle thinks that Cartman has done all this just to mess with him and it's not immediately clear what has prompted the big shift.
Viewers were absolutely floored to see such a radical change in Eric's way of life, especially considering how much he railed against Kyle all through school for being Jewish.
Cartman even dressed up as Adolf Hitler in one episode. So, to see him pull a big 180 is shocking to say the least.
Loads of people reckon this is all a ruse and he must be hiding a big prank for later on.
The movie is based off the events that happened during the show's hour-long coronavirus special episode that aired last year.
It takes aim at anti-vaxxers, pandemic fatigue, new variants of the coronavirus and how the world could move on from the terrifying events of 2020.
It has received some pretty mixed reviews so far, based off regular people's comments on Rotten Tomatoes.
One person said: "The last few seasons of South Park were pretty bad in my opinion. But this special was surprising decent. It was fun to see the kids grown up in a post-covid world. I thought it was entertaining but I wish they made it into a longer movie and finished the story."
Another viewer added: "This one didn't quite feel like your classic South Park, but I respect the new territory. I'm hoping that by the time [this South Park Covid series] fully wraps up, altogether in one piece -- maybe it really works that way."
Some suspect there could be a second part to this movie and Paramount has confirmed a new film will drop next month.
