Futurama Direct-to-Video Greenlit?

Update by [-mArc-]:
Due to some communication hiccup within CGEF, the following had been posted without all information attached. Most importantly, our latest information from David X. Cohen is that the movie(s) have NOT been greenlit yet. So, take what Billy says as a good sign, but not neccessarily as the final word on it.

It seems that FOX has finally given the Futurama Direct-to-Video the green light. In the first of IGN's exclusive Video Blogs direct from San Diego's Comic-Con International, voice actor Billy West (Fry, Zoidberg, the Professor, and many more voices for many more shows) revealed to us that a brand-new direct-to-video Futurama movie has been greenlit. There is also an option on a second dvd.

Thanks to IGN for this exclusive information. The information has not yet been confirmed by Matt Groening or FOX itself, so let's just keep hoping

Futurama Comics #21

This will be out September 28th, 2005. If anyone has a preview scan of this issue, send it my way please.
by Rogers and Delaney
Fry takes his first trip to the dentist in over one thousand years and discovers that his dental fillings are receiving a sub space from an unknown alien race. But their friendly entreaties for peace soon turn to a declaration of war after Fry begins grinding his teeth in his sleep.
Futurama X-Mas DVD rumor
According to an Essex Futurama fan that goes by the name Jamie, there will be a Futurama X-Mas themed DVD out near the end of the year. He works at blockbuster, and it lists "Futurama at Christmas" as an upcoming release.

No official word on this. There's really no info at all about it. But it sounds like a decent enough idea, no? Fox had announced something like this to happen many years ago, before the seasonal DVDs were released. So maybe they're finally going to follow through with the idea.
