In case you haven’t heard, last week Jeff Smith’s wildly successful comic series Bone was optioned by Warner Bros. for release on the big screen! As was Kazu Kibuishi’s new Scholastic series, Amulet. Congratulations to the both of them and I know I’ll be front and center for both films. Seeing Bone animated will be a dream come true and I particularly liked the fact that Jeff Smith is “partial to 2-D” animation for the project, but that either way the adaption will be faithful to the books according to Smith’s description of the deal (one of the major wrench’s in the works up to this point). I suppose I should merely stay cautiously optimistic given the tumultuous history of so many comic franchises after they’ve been green-lit, but I’ve got high hopes for these given the talent involved.
“Wa-hoo” just about covers it!
