It has been announced that Warner Animation Group, the animated film production arm of Warner Bros. Pictures, and Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. are teaming up to produce multiple feature films based on the iconic characters and stories created by Dr. Seuss, aka Theodor Seuss Geisel.
A fully animated version of the children’s classic ‘The Cat in the Hat’ will be the first project developed under this partnership. The beloved character was previously adapted to the big screen with the 2003 live-action movie starring Mike Myers; although it was considered a disappointment.
“Our Pictures Group is home to some of the world’s most popular film franchises, and we’re honoured to add Dr. Seuss titles to that roster,” said Warner Bros Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich. “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.”

I was just discussing this earlier today on Twitter with a follower. I think the “buzz-phrase” in the description is “Photo-Realistic Animation”. I’ve heard it explained as being similar to, but better than, the “Jungle Book” was. Either way I’m kind of interested in seeing how it comes out although… to be honest, I’m a HUGE fan of 2D animation and nothing will ever replace the original for me.
