RABBIDS is getting the Robot Chicken treatment. Matthew Senriech, Tom Sheppard and Zeb Wells are going to write a feature film based on the Rayman video game characters. The project, like Robot Chicken will have stop-motion elements. Ubisoft Motion Pictures and Sony are overseeing the project.
The Rabbids were originally quirky enemies in the Ubisoft video game Rayman, but like Despicable Me’s Minions, became popular enough to warrant their own spinoff. The Rabbids video game then earned enough acclaim for Nickelodeon to start an animated series in 2013. Now the ridiculous giant rabbits are going to the big screen.
Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the animation studio founded by the creators of Robot Chicken, will produce the film. They recently collaborated with both Ubisoft and Sony for a video game trailer and a hybrid live/stop-motion film, respectively.
