In the 80s a former Disney animator struck out on his own and outdid the Mouse by adapting Robert C. Oâ€™Brienâ€™s story of mice, â€œMrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMHâ€. The resulting 1982 movie, The Secret of NIMH, put Don Bluth on the map and has become a classic over the last three decades.
Now MGM is again adapting the original book according to Deadline. It’ll be a live-action/CG hybrid and you know what that means. You don’t have to look any further than the Chipmunk movies, the Smurf movies, or anything else that’s a CG/live action hybrid aimed at kids to know where this is headed.
Fart jokes and pop music!
Just buy the Don Bluth original on Blu-Ray and avoid this…
