You read that right, ToeJam and Earl are back baby. It seems that Amazon Studios has already set its eyes on the iconic SEGA franchise from the 90s as a feature film. Stephen Curry’s Unanimous Media and Story Kitchen are currently attached to bring the film to life about alien rappers that are looking for a cure. No, not a cure for the usual disease but one that destroys their home planet’s rhythm, funk, and groove. The following description has been shared for the film:
Earth, their legends tell them, is the Paradise where the music that created their culture originated. Unfortunately for our heroes, not only do they wreck their ship, but they find that Earth is . . . well, not the haven they expected. But the music – that part was true. So begins their quest to find as much of that music as they can in the hope of saving their planet, and maybe ours as well.
Amos Vernon and Nunzio Randazoo, who recently penned Hotel Transylvania 4 and Disney+’s Superfudge, are set to write the film’s script with Story Kitchen’s Dmitri M. Johnsona nd Dan Jevons set to produe the project. They are joined by Curry, Erick Peyton, and Mike Goldberg. It’s unclear if this film will be an animated film or a live-action/animation hybrid given ToeJam and Earl’s very alien design from the original gaming trilogy. Whatever tehy have planned, it’s definitely crazy to think we live in a time where ToeJam and Earl will be a film to begin with.
