Warner Animation Group To Produce Tom And Jerry Live-Action Animation Hybrid Movie

Warner Animation Group To Produce Tom And Jerry Live-Action Animation Hybrid Movie

Warner Animation Group To Produce Tom And Jerry Live-Action Animation Hybrid Movie

According to an exclusive from movie industry magazine – Variety, Warner Bros’ animated movie division – WAG (Warner Animation Group), the same studio behind The Lego Movie are in negotiations with Tim Story (director of Shaft and Fantastic Four) to direct a new Tom and Jerry live-action/animated hybrid movie. WAG has also hired Chris Columbus as creative director on the new Scooby-Doo! animated movie which is planned to be released in 2020.

Since The Lego Movie, WAG has been working hard developing movie ideas from classic Hanna-Barbera properties, Warner Bros. as a whole wants to give these classic cartoon characters as much attention as their other popular properties such as DC (Batman, Superman etc.) or Harry Potter.

Warner Bros. wants to produce a mixture of animated features and live-action hybrids, with coordinating live-action and animation teams working together and there still be emphasis on animation for live-action/animation hybrid projects. The new Tom and Jerry movie is expected to start filming in 2019.

The movie will have real world footage with animated versions of the famous cat and mouse duo, according to sources obtained by Variety, the film will be very similar to the original Tom and Jerry shorts and its various reboots and offshoots, as it will depend on physical slapstick comedy and the two characters will not speak, this will help the movie appeal more to international audiences.

The other major live-action hybrid movie expected to go into production next year is the sequel to Space Jam – Space Jam 2 with NBA superstar LeBron James who just like Michael Jordan in the original movie, will team up with the Looney Tunes to play basketball. The studio is also making a “Wile E. Coyote vs. ACME” live-action/animated hybrid movie, with The Lego Movie’s Chris McKay leading development. WAG is also working on a movie based on “The Jetsons” with Matt Lieberman and the director of Sausage Party – Conrad Vernon, WAG is also developing movies based on The Flintstones and Wacky Races. WAG’s next major movie – The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part will be released in cinemas across the U.S. on 8th February 2019.

Warner Bros. Animation’s Get Animated: Invasion Exhibit At The Grammy Museum

The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles has opened a special exhibit yesterday (18th August) about the music in Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera cartoons, the special pop-up exhibit is called “Get Animated: Warner Bros. Presents The Invasion”. The exhibit offers an immersive experience complete with props and sets which makes visitors feel that they’re in a cartoon. Warner Bros. animated shows have been influential in pop-culture not only for its animation but also for the use of music, it has popularised classical music and even created mainstream hits. This is the second pop-up “Get Animated Invasion” exhibit that has been taken place, the first one was held as a side event to New York Comic Con last October.

Visitors will journey though the classical pieces heard in Looney Tunes, the 1960’s psychedelic rock of Scooby-Doo, the 1990’s R&B hits from the movie – Space Jam, the musical numbers in Animaniacs and much more. For the exhibit, The Grammy Museum and Warner Bros. have invited a bunch of artists and designers to interpret and reimagine the music from the cartoons through their own unique lens. Also there will be a section for Warner Animation Group’s upcoming feature film – Smallfoot, which features a new song by Niall Horan.

Visitors will be able to share their experiences on social media using the hashtag #GetAnimatedInvasion. The exhibit will be open until Sunday 9th September, and tickets can now be purchased on the Grammy Museum’s website.
