We told you in March that Phil Lollar, one of the co-creators of Adventures in Odyssey, would be returning to the writing team and today we got our first pictures of Phil in studio from the AIO Facebook page. Not only is Phil writing episodes again, but he has also returned as a director.
The episode "Walter's Flying Bus" will be an Odyssey Adventure Club episode to be released in 2015 and will be based on the children's book of the same name. The Facebook page posted a photo of the script. If you look closely at the second page of the script on the table you might be able to spot that quite a few scenes in this episode apparently take place in the Inspiration Station, an invention of Whit's that hasn't been heard from since the opening of Album 51. The AIO team has now confirmed that this underused invention does indeed return.
Actors Zach Callison, the first voice of Matthew Parker, and Brandon Gilberstadt, the voice of Jared DeWhite, also returned to the studio, although they aren't voicing their original characters. Instead, they came back to play the young disciples Joshua and John in the upcoming OAC episode "Follow Me." According to the AIO team, this episode will be "a 'what if' tale set in Jesus' day." It is written by both Phil Lollar and Marshal Younger. You can see more photos from Season Two of the Odyssey Adventure Club here.
