I think it is an April Fool's Day joke. The announcement came out the day of, the movie comes out the same next year, the way the credits are listed looks suspicious, the editing seems overconstructed, and since when has IGN ever made a movie?!
What was that?! "We could make a four hour miniseries, but too bad it's only going to be three minutes." I'd be psyched about this if it was real, but like I said, there's something VERY fishy about all of this.
