Well, kids, we live in a world where someone is considering making a film and/or television show about Peeps. Like, the overly sugary marshmallow Peeps you eat or, if you’re me, blow up in the microwave. Filmmaker Adam Rifkin just optioned rights and is thinking about turning Peeps into a full-length animated film. According to Deadline, the plot is “set the night before a Peeps diorama contest, when a wayward Peep gets misplaced and must adventure through the fantasy lands of different-themed dioramas before the contest’s judging begins.”
Actually, that doesn’t sound so bad. And, they do have the popularity of Peeps to help draw audiences to theaters. Plus, the success of The Lego Movie proves that movies like this can work. Just think about all the product tie-ins! We’ll see if it actually makes it to the next stage of development.
