Little Wombat heads to TV, from SEVEN24 Films and marblemedia

The partnership of SEVEN24 and marblemedia is diligently working to bring Little Wombat to the little screen. The animated adventure will be based on Charles Fuge’s book series of the same name, starring Wombat and his world in the Hollow with friends like Koala, Frog, Mole, and many others. There is not yet a launch date or launch channel known for the series, but it’s likely to be picked up by a network looking to welcome a world of child-like curiosity! Maybe Disney Junior or Nick Jr. could make a nice home…?

Ricky Gervais digs Mole from The Wind in the Willows

Ricky Gervais digs Mole from The Wind in the Willows

Over 100 years ago, back in 1908, Kenneth Grahame published what would become a children’s classic, The Wind in the Willows. Perhaps best known through Disney’s adaptation and subsequent amusement park adventure, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, the story follows Mole, Ratty, Toad, and Badger, as the group spends their time getting into trouble, getting lost, and “simply messing about in boats.” Now, RG Entertainment is hoping to take the latest spin on the adventures through a live-action, CG, and animatronic film, set to hit theaters in 2012. Ricky Gervais has recently signed on to the project, lending his voice to Mole, who will likely be animated by Weta, the company Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings epic.
