Where's Waldo? On His Way to a Theater Near You, That's Where

Where's Waldo? On His Way to a Theater Near You, That's Where

Remember Where's Waldo? I used to pore over those books for hours — even once I'd find Waldo, I'd examine every minuscule detail of those colorful pages. Now it seems a little silly to have spent that much time on what were basically picture books, but it's really just a testament to how much the Waldo books can delight kids. There was even a waiting list to take them out of my library.

Now Universal Pictures is swooping in on the rights to the beloved character with plans to make Where's Waldo? into a live-action family film. Previously, Paramount and Nickelodeon were putting together a movie version and even had the beginnings of a script which "revolved around Waldo, now 30, ending up traveling through time after accidentally activating a malfunctioning travel machine." Now Universal has the rights, but no details are available yet about the story, writers, actors, or director.

I think it would be fun if he ran into Carmen Sandiego and they had a whirlwind, globe-trotting romance, but that's just me. Did you enjoy these books as a kid?

Buzz, I think you meant you used to "pour" not "pore" over the books. But yeah, I'd spend a lot of time trying to find that sneaky bastard, lol.

I had all of these books and loved them so much! Even now, I get excited when I see them pop up at Target or wherever. I'll be interested to see how the movie develops!

aaw! I loved these books! They were the cutest! I remember they were pretty expensive and there also was a waiting list to take them out in my school's library!Don't really imagine how they can do a movie about it but I'll probably give it a shot when it comes out...

Ok, I loved the books as much as the next person but a movie based on it? I frequently I wonder how pitches for this type of movie go.

I was a little old for the Where's Waldo craze, but I always enjoyed books like that when I was a kid. I think your idea is best--please, Hollywood, pair up Waldo and Carmen Sandiego.
