The Jetsons cartoon

Warners Bros. will be making an animated Jetsons movie and has hired Matt Lieberman to write the script, according to Deadline, who added that the writer got the gig after his work on the animated Scooby-Doo movie for the studio.

The animated feature film will be based on the 1960s Hanna-Barbera series The Jetsons, for which WB now owns the archives (they acquired this in 1996 when they merged with Turner, which had held the rights since 1991). The cartoon TV series, which was the Space Age answer to the prehistoric Flintstones, centered on Orbit City residents, The Jetsons: George Jetson, his wife Jane, daughter Judy, and son Elroy, along with their dog Astro and robot maid Rosie.

Emblem for Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

The Disney theme parks have a large catalog of rides and attractions to see, and with the success of four Pirates of the Caribbean movies, it only seems right to go down that catalog and find the next theme-parked based movie. If you want to know what ride is being adapted into a movie, then buckle up, because you are going to be in for one wild ride.

Currently the Haunted Mansion reboot, Jungle Cruise, Matterhorn, and Magic Kingdom park feature films are in the works and now you can add another iconic Disneyland ride to the list. According to Deadline, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride will now be adapted for the big screen and is set to be directed by commercial and music video director Pete Candeland.

Coming Soon reports that Matt Lieberman will pen a new draft of the film’s screenplay, which will be helmed by Tim Hill.  Dimension Films has the project, and have been touting their success with Spy Kids and that franchise, so we know just what to expect here.
