All I can say is it's about time. There's been talk of this for the longest time. Richard and Wendy Pini's characters are prime material for a movie franchise. It hasn't been announced what the format will be like. I would think CG would be the logical choice. A mix of CG and live-action might work. The trick would be to make it not look cheesey. But with the success of Lord of the Rings and such, this could be the next great epic.
It's going to be directed by Rawson Thurber who also did the Ben Stiller movie Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.
