Universal Plans A “Spirit Animals” Franchise

Universal Pictures is aiming to build a film franchise from the Scholastic book series “Spirit Animals”.

The books revolve around four kids who come age in the land of Erdas with the power to form a rare bond with animals that include a wolf, leopard, panda and falcon. They become the world’s last hope as a dark force rises against civilization.

John Fusco will write the script, and Deborah Forte is producing the project which has been described as an “edgy, epic family film”.
