DreamWorks Animation Commits To Another Film On Its Ever Growing List: My Unwilling Witch

Josh Hylton writes for Bleeding Cool

DreamWorks Animation should consider itself lucky. It is perhaps the only American based animation studio that isn’t simply referenced as “not Pixar.” Its projects are hit and miss – for every How to Train Your Dragon there is a Shark Tale – but they have carved out a little niche for themselves in the animation community. Good for them.

I say this because word coming from Variety is that they have another project lined up (because a couple dozen apparently aren’t enough). It’s an adaptation of the children’s book “My Unwilling Witch (The Rumblewick Letters)” by Hiawyn Oram and Sarah Warburton and it will be directed by Tim Johnson, the director of the oft forgotten Antz.

The story will evidently follow a magician’s rabbit as he tries to escape the fate set up for him by two rival witches. I say “evidently” because there isn’t even a Wikipedia page on this thing and I’m not particularly savvy when it comes to children’s literature. You’ll have to forgive me.
