EXCLUSIVE:: Kirk Wise, known for his work on some of Disney’s iconic animated films such as Beauty and the Beast and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, has signed on as a director Sunny, the first animated feature of Enderby Entertainment.
Rick Dugdale, CEO of Enderby, will produce the image with Darrell Brown of Creative Anarchy. Todd Ireland (ReBoot: The Guardian Code, Continuum) will write the script based on a story by Dugdale and Brown. It’s about a boy named Sunny who has to learn to control his emotions because his emotions control the sun.
Dan Petrie Jr., Cam Cannon and Zac Reeder will serve as executive producers.
“It’s exciting to step into the animation room with one of the biggest names in animation and a story that is fresh, engaging and family-friendly,” said Dugdale. “We want to create a story that has a positive impact on our culture and society. These are the stories we want to tell. “
“Sometimes a single sentence is enough to win me over to ideas that I think are uniquely suited to the animation medium, and SUNNY passed this test with flying colors!” said the wise man. “I couldn’t be more excited to help the Enderby team bring this story to audiences around the world.”
