Nickelodeon has made a deal with Wildbrain to turn Kidrobot properties into a series of feature films that will be a mix of animation and live action.

Budnitz will of course be Co-Exec Producer of the films. Scott Aversano, producer for Nick films, saw a complete collection of the characters and got the film idea while he was running Nickelodeon, and will spearhead the project as producer. The plan is to draft a writer for pen a story about ordinary kids who are transported into the edgy world populated by the Kidrobot creatures..... hmmm.

Wildbrain, which acquired the company from Budnitz, is the producer of the Nick Jr. series "Yo Gabba Gabba!"

I'm sure the announcement of this will get a mixed response from the Kidrobot faithful but the fact is they're a company on the move with no end of directions they can head in, and what their association with Wildbrain, an animation company, it's no suprise that this is the result.

I just hope the artists who create the characters they use get more credit than Tristan Eaton does for creating the Dunny/Munny. Meowwww
