Hasbro has announced plans to join forces with The Jim Henson Company to produce 3-D animated adventure based on their popular character T.J. Bearytales. T.J and his friends will star in two direct-to-DVD musical, comedy adventures that will teach viewers about the importance of friendship and the fun of using their imagination.
The first feature, "My Beary Outer Space Adventure" will be available on DVD this fall, and the second title, "My Beary Colorful Adventure" is set to be released in the spring of 2008. The Jim Henson Company is producing these titles using the Henson Digital Performance Studio, the Company’s proprietary animation system that allows digital characters to be performed by puppeteers in real-time.
I’ll keep you posted with details on this, and other Henson projects, as information surfaces.
