Funko Pop! film coming from Warner Bros

It was only a matter of time – those loveable Funko Pop! figurines you have way too many of are being made into an animated film courtesy of Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. and Funko have been partners on licensed collectables for over 20 years now, and this will be the first time their partnership is brought to the big screen. Allison Abbate, Executive VP of Warner Animation Group, said of the project: “Their fresh take on pop culture make these figurines incredibly appealing to fans of all ages”

Oscar-nominated director and designer Teddy Newton is on board to script the motion picture.

Said Funko CEO Brian Mariotti: “We’re thrilled for this opportunity and are committed to make an amazing Funko movie that stands on its own merit. This isn’t about selling toys or building a brand. The team at Warner Animation Group have a unique vision of what the first film should be and we are extremely excited to take this journey alongside them.”
