‘90s kids may be familiar with the iconic sci-fi book series called Animorphs, which will soon get a movie adaptation.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the children’s publishing and media company Scholastic will team up with production company Picturestart to develop the live-action movie. Lole Lucchese and Caitlin Friedman from Scholastic Entertainment will be producing the film alongside Picturestart’s Erik Feig and Lucy Kitada.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with Scholastic to adapt Animorphs, an iconic book series with a wildly unique combination of exciting, witty, outlandish, and grounded elements that feel all too relevant for our times,” Feig told The Hollywood Reporter.
Written by K.A. Applegate, the books follow five teenagers who have the ability to morph into any animal they touch. They will then use these powers that have gained to fight alien invasions of Earth to save humanity.
