Hello Kitty Is Hitting the Big Screen Soon
She's got a movie in the works!
(SPOT.ph) Those who grew up in the '90s have been treated to seeing their childhood favorites on the big screen again lately—what with the likes of Lion King, Dumbo, Pikachu, and more with movies in the works. Well, you can add another one to the list: Hello Kitty. According to a report by Variety, the world-famous Japanese character is getting a film that's set to be developed by Sanrio, New Line Cinema, and FlynnPictureCo.
There's no word yet on whether the movie's going to be live-action, animated, or both, but it's reportedly going to be done in English. It's worth noting, though, that Hello Kitty has never talked, so it's interesting to see how this'll turn out.
New Line Cinema, one of the studios behind the project, is also the same company behind the Lego movies and the upcoming Space Jam 2. FlynnPictureCo.'s Beau Flynn will serve as producer while Wendy Jacobson will be executive producer. Flynn and Jacobson have worked on movies like Rampage, Skyscraper, and San Andreas together.
Let's hope we'll be hearing more updates about the movie soon, because '90s kids are sure to be lining up at the cinemas for this one.
