How the Grinch Stole Christmas is getting an animated reboot

Universal Pictures had a massive hit on their hands with Ron Howard’s live-action Dr. Seuss adaptation, The Grinch.


The studio is now plotting an animated do-over, set to hit cinemas nearly 15 years after Jim Carrey bounded around in the green body-suit.

According to Deadline, Illumination Entertainment – who previously produced The Lorax for Universal – will animate the flick.

Pete Candeland will direct, though no writer is yet attached.

Producer Chris Meledandri also worked on Horton Hears a Who for Fox.

An animated TV special based on How the Grinch Stole Christmas! aired in 1966.
