Warner Bros. Animation is Developing CAT IN THE HAT and More Dr. Seuss Feature Films
Warner Bros. Animation has partnered up with Dr. Seuss Enterprises to produce several animated feature films based on the stories and characters of Dr. Seuss! According to Variety, the first film they will be adapting for the big screen in The Cat in the Hat.
I love the books that Dr. Seuss wrote! I wish they would kick off this venture with another movie other than The Cat in the Hat, though. But, I guess that is the most popular character. I personally can't wait to see a Green Eggs and Ham movie!
Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, said this is a statement:
"Our Pictures Group is home to some of the world’s most popular film franchises, and we’re honored to add Dr. Seuss titles to that roster. With Warner Animation Group, we’ve really revitalized our feature animation activities, and this partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises will continue our move into world-class, wide-appeal animated fare."
Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises added:
"For generations, Dr. Seuss has entertained and delighted children and adults alike with his whimsical tales.Our partnership with Warner Animation Group continues those efforts by reimagining the beloved characters and stories for theater-going audiences, while keeping the integrity of Dr. Seuss’s vision intact."
Allison Abbate, executive VP of Warner Animation Group, went on to say:
"I could not be more excited about the opportunity to work on films based on Dr. Seuss’ wildly creative and iconic works. Everybody knows and loves these characters, and the fun part of making these films will be staying true to the Seuss sensibilities while finding a dynamic cinematic expression of their beloved stories. We can’t wait to get started."
