The Gotham Group and puppeteer Kevin Clash are teaming for a musical comedy film based on the almost century-old classic Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls and book series reports Variety.
Specifically the book "Raggedy Ann and Andy and the Camel With Wrinkled Knees" is being used as the basis for the feature. That story centers on the dolls being lost in a modern-day city and possibly having to save a stolen friend from the clutches of a scheming enemy.
The project blends puppetry and CG to bring the characters to life in a contemporary, live-action setting with celebrity cameos galore. Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson are producing.
