Ubisoft’s Rabbids, who first appeared in 2006’s Rayman: Raving Rabbids, will be getting their own feature-length film. Ubisoft announced that it has partnered with Sony Pictures Entertainment to develop the movie, which will be overseen by Ubisoft Motion Pictures.
“Sony Pictures has tremendous experience developing hybrid live-action-and-animated blockbusters for audiences around the world, which makes them a natural fit for what we want to achieve with a Rabbids film,” Ubisoft Motion Pictures executive director Jean-Julien Baronnet said, in part. “This deal deepens our partnership with Sony Pictures and highlights our holistic approach to bringing Ubisoft’s brands to new audiences while still maintaining the brands’ creative integrity.”
Since their first appearance in 2006, the Rabbids have appeared in several titles of their own as well as a television show called Rabbids Invasion on Nickelodeon.
