Fox Animation Gets Rights to Zita the Spacegirl


Fox Animation has recently secured the rights to Ben Hatke’s Zita the Spacegirl graphic novel trilogy, which is to be produced by Chernin Entertainment (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.) The first in the series of books was published in 2011 and brought to the US by MacMillan’s First Second Imprint.

The planned feature film will be penned by Morgan Jurgenson and Alex Ankeles and will be overseen by Darlene Caamano Loquet for Fox Animation. Zita the Spacegirl follows the titular young girl as she finds her life become complicated on a cosmic level when her best friend is abducted by an alien cult. Stuck in a planet of humanoid chickens and neurotic robots, Zita had no choice but to become an intergalactic hero and kick some butts as she tries to find her way back to Earth.
