BWAAAAAAAAA! Rabbids are getting a movie!

We really should have seen this coming. Ubisoft has confirmed that it is working on a film based on the Rabbids franchise. Making the news even more exciting is the tasty detail that this will be a hybird live-action / animated project.

Hannah Minghella, president of production for Columbia Pictures (a subsidiary of Sony Pictures) explains:

There is an infectious quality to the Rabbids. Their simple joy and absurd, anarchic behavior inadvertently causes you to look at the world afresh. There’s no end to the comedy and chaos they will cause when they invade our theatres.

Ubisoft Motion Pictures will oversee the production alongside Sony, with the French games department “actively participating” in the project.

Jean-Julien Baronnet, executive director at Ubisoft Motion Pictures explains:

This deal deepens our partnership with Sony Pictures and highlights our holistic approach to bringing Ubisoft’s brands to new audiences while still maintaining the brands’ creative integrity.

In case you missed it, this isn’t the first non-gaming adventure for the Rabbids. They recently starred in an animated Nickelodeon series, Rabbids Invasion – watched more than 165 million times in the past five months.
