I don’t know about you, but The Brave Little Toaster was one of my absolute favorite movies as a child. It was so influential to me that when my mom and I moved while I was in the first grade, I obsessively made sure that we had remembered all of our appliances. I recently read that Waterman Entertainment has acquired the rights to the film, and announced that they plan on developing it as a computer-animated feature.
If you haven’t seen it, The Brave Little Toaster follows the journey of a toaster, lamp, radio, vacuum and blanket on a journey through the woods in order to reunite with their masters that accidentally left them at a vacation cabin. Kind of sounds a bit like Toy Story, hm? Turns out that this was originally pitched by John Lasseter in his pre-Pixar years at Disney. When Lasseter left, the idea was brought up by Hyperion Pictures and Kushner-Locke, who made the film in standard 2D.
Waterman Entertainment has plans to update the 1987 feature to include more modern technology, like the iPhone, and possibly even some commercial plugs. Ugh. Luckily the film is nowhere in production and could end up being shelved for years.
Don’t get me wrong, I love this movie. But don’t go messing with my Toaster! [via the Mary Sue]
Do you remember this movie from your childhood, Lovelies? What do you think about the potential remake?
