Warner Animation Group, the animated film production arm of Warner Bros. Pictures, has formed a creative partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, L.P. to produce multiple feature films based on the iconic characters and stories created by Theodor Seuss Geisel—who you'd know better as Dr. Seuss. The announcement came yesterday from Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, and Susan Brandt, President of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
Even better news: A fully animated version of the children’s classic The Cat in the Hat will be the first project developed under the partnership.
"Our Pictures Group is home to some of the world’s most popular film franchises, and we’re honored to add Dr. Seuss titles to that roster," said Emmerich in the announcement. "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."
The collaboration furthers the relationship between Warner Bros. and Dr. Seuss Enterprises, which also includes the upcoming Netflix series Green Eggs and Ham, produced by A Very Good Production, A Stern Talking To and Gulfstream Television in association with Warner Bros Animation, and distributed by Warner Bros. Television.
Stay tuned for more from the partnership of these two great companies.
