"Tortoise vs. Hare" Coming This Fall

Following this week's release of "Unstable Fables: 3 Pigs and a Baby", the Jim Henson Company and Genius Products have announced plans to release the second title in the "Unstable Fables" series this fall. The computer-animated direct-to-DVD fill will feature a unique continuation of Aesop's classic fable "The Tortise and the Hare".

"Unstable Fables: Tortoise vs. Hare" features the rematch of the century as the Hare and his son challenge the Tortoise and his daughter to go head to head in the Mount Impossible Nature Adventure Race. The two teams face off in an elaborate battle of speed versus strategy full of adventure, comedy and fun for the whole family. The film, written by Tom Martin and directed by Howard Baker, will showcase the vocal talents of Danny Glover, Jay Leno, Vivica A. Fox, Keke Palmer, and Drake Bell.

And looking to the future of the brand, it's been said that the third "Unstable Fable" film, entitled "The Goldilocks & the 3 Bears Show", is planned for release in "early 2009". The film, written by Chris Parrish, will feature a reimagining of "Goldilocks and the 3 Bears" and is said to feature an all-star cast, including Tom Arnold, Brooke Shields, and Jamie Lynn Spears, among others.

So be sure to check out the recently released "3 Pigs and a Baby", the first installment in the "Unsable Fables" series; and I will be sure to keep you updated as more information on these films become available.
