Cynopsis: Kids!

04/08/09

Good morning. It’s Wednesday, April 8, 2009, and this is your first early morning Kids briefing.

Production has begun on Skyrunners, the first original TV movie for Disney XD.  A science fiction adventure starring Kelly Blatz (Aaron Stone) and newcomer Joey Pollari, Skyrunners will feature alien creature effects designed and created by Weta Workshop (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, King Kong and The Chronicles of Narnia).  The story revolves around two teen brothers that commandeer a UFO that crashes near their town and uncover an evil alien plot to take over Earth.  A production of Ranger Productions and Shaftesbury Services II, Inc., Skyrunners is directed by Ralph Hemecker (Numb3rs) and written by Richard C. Okie (Quantum Leap, Earth: Final Conflict) along with Adam Wilson & Melanie Wilson. Okie also serves as executive-producer of the movie.

Nickelodeon gives the go ahead on a third season of the preschool series Yo Gabba Gabba!  Produced by The Magic Store and Wildbrain, production on the new season of 13×30 episodes Yo Gabba Gabba! will begin in LA this August 2009.  Yo Gabba Gabba! currently airs daily on Noggin.

There is one busy Easter Bunny out there. Sony Animation acquires the rights to Hip Hop, according to The Hollywood Reporter.  A mixed CG and live-action movie, the story revolves around the Easter Bunny, who deciding he wants to retire and takes up residence as a pet living in the home of a suburban family where he is making life a little crazy.  You may recall that earlier this week Illumination Entertainment revealed it is producing its first live-action movie I Hop, which also features a storyline about the Easter Bunny.
