‘Candyland’ Gets ‘Kung Fu Panda’ Writers

1 min read

One of the games to movies properties that has languished alongside a number of others, some of which have started to move forward more in the last year, is Candyland. While initial reactions may be to laugh at such a premise, there is the opportunity to make a pretty good kids movie here with the use of CG animation these days that would definitely appeal, both in name brand and the simple colorfulness of it. Naturally, it will also get a whole lot of grief as crass and obvious commercialization, but welcome to Hollywood.

The Candyland feature has nabbed one of the key ingredients, according to the Heat Vision blog, with Kung Fu Panda writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, jumping on board the project to be directed by Kevin Lima.

Project concept: The board game has a story centered around finding the lost king of Candy Land. The players wind their way through enchanted lands such as Candy Cane Forest and Gum Drop Mountain, see characters such as Princess Frostine and Gramma Nutt as well as the evil Lord Licorice who can make players lose a turn.
