Adventure Time Feature Film In The Works

9:21 PM

With all the success with the Lego Movie and the Spongebob Squarepants movie, Cartoon Network is tapping to give Adventure Time a big screen treatment.

Most of us know that Pendleton Ward, the creator of the show, stopped working on the show sometime during season 5. “I quit because it was driving me nuts,” Ward told Rolling Stone in an interview.

“Dealing with people every day wears on you. To spend that extra energy and time you don’t have, to make something that’s worth making, to make it awesome, wears you out. It’s a beast of a show. And the more popular it gets, the more the ancillary things – like the merchandise and games and everything – keep getting bigger. For me, having quality of life outweighed the need to control this project and make it great all the time.”

When Ward stepped away from the helm, he expressed interest in making a theatrical version of the hit show someday. He will be back to help write and produce the feature.

The animated film will be produced by Chris McKay, the animation supervisor of The LEGO Movie and director of the upcoming The LEGO Batman Movie. Also, Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment, one of 18 producers on The LEGO Movie. Cartoon Network Studios and Frederator Studios will also be involved in the theatrical version.
