3D animated/live action Clifford The Big Red Dog movie coming in 2016
Get excited, fanboys! The character you have been dying to see adapted into a 3D animated/live action movie is finally coming to a theater near you in 2016! That's right, it is Clifford The Big Red Dog!
The movie, appropriately titled CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG, will be based on the series of children's books of the same name. The books have been published since 1963 and follow the exploits of an oversized red dog and his owners as they get involved in learning opportunities and other shenanigans. Similar to Curious George, Clifford is an educational and moral series that has guided children for five decades.
The Universal film will be similar to the Russell Brand film HOP which featured animated animals while all other actors were live action. The genre has had mixed results, but it could also end up being a fun family movie. CLIFFORD will be produced by Deborah Forte who has been involved in the animated PBS series for years. No actors have been named yet but I would expect there to be a mix of unknowns and possibly a few recognizable faces.
CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG will hit theaters on April 8, 2016.
