A baby’s gotta do what a baby’s gotta do, even if that baby is, in reality, 28 years old.
Nickelodeon announced Monday that the 1990 classic series “Rugrats” will return to the channel for a 26-episode season. The release date for this has not yet been announced, but the show creators Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó and Paul Germain are all on board as executive producers again.
The babies will also have a feature film — the Rugrats’ fourth theatrical release but first in CGI — slated for November 13, 2020.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the original characters — even Reptar — will be back for the show and the film. We’re hopeful that many of the original cast will be back as well.
The original film remains the most successful stop-motion film of all time, in part because of its U.S. distribution by DreamWorks Animation ($106 million of the film’s $225 million gross came from the states).
“Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” premiered late last year in front of Disney•Pixar’s Coco.
Reportedly, the third full installment of the Frozen brand will combine aspects of Frozen 2 and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. Menzel gave Deadline a sneak peek into the future marketing campaign:
Unlike any film before its time, Frozen 3 will truly capture audiences worldwide. Participating theaters will be instructed to guide any customer into the designated Frozen theaters no matter what ticket the customer had purchased.
Guests will then be lined up and placed into priority seating, which involves the customer being securely fastened into the chair for safety. Restraints will not be released until the theater employees have been instructed to.
A fifteen-minute intermission will be given to all audiences, during which a horse carcass will be displayed and each guest will be required to give at least one beating with an approved stick. (It is unclear if theaters will provide the sticks or if guests will have to purchase them beforehand.)
After Idina Menzel finished her morning coffee she had acquired while speaking with our reporters, she remarked, “You f***ers will never make it out alive.”
Disney Channel has greenlighted a pair of kid-targeted animated series: Amphibia (created by Matt Braly), a comedy about a girl who gets transported to the titular world, and The Owl House (created by Dana Terrace), a horror comedy about a teenage human girl who stumbles upon a portal to the Demon Realm. Both are set to premiere in 2019.
