Warner Bros. to Tell Tom and Jerry's "Origin Story" on Big Screen

Warner Bros. to Tell Tom and Jerry's "Origin Story" on Big Screen

The latest news about old cartoons getting a big screen makeover includes the Hanna-Barbera show Tom and Jerry, which Warner Bros. hopes to make "its own Alvin and the Chipmunks-like family franchise." Like the chipmunks, the cat and mouse will be CG characters who exist in a live-action world.

The plan is to "adapt the classic Hanna-Barbera property as an origin story that reveals how Tom and Jerry first meet and form their rivalry before getting lost in Chicago and reluctantly working together during an arduous journey home." Tom and Jerry join a couple other Warner Bros. cartoon-turned-movie projects currently in the works: Yogi Bear and Robert Rodriguez's The Jetsons.

You know, the Alvin and the Chipmunks movies make me a little sad, though I suppose it was only a matter of time before Tom and Jerry were yanked into the modern-day CG family film craze. Thoughts?

Tom and Jerry annoyed me as a child, I can't imagine a) kids today even liking the concept and b) it improving in any way by making it CG animated. Ew!

I'm not really loving this idea. Some things should just remain as they are.
