Hello Kitty

If further proof were needed they 1 are all out to get your money 2 (as well as further drive one to distraction), comes now the Hello Kitty movie.

I shit thee not:

[T]here’s going to be a Hello Kitty movie. Repeat: Hello Kitty is getting her own movie. Need to hear this information one more time? Hello Kitty + movie = our wildest dreams have FINALLY come true.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Sanrio is ready to take this kitty to the big screen (OK, but she’s not really a cat, we get it). It was only a matter of time before she made this big leap. Our Kitty White already has a well established empire, including, but not limited to: television shows, conventions, cafes, food trucks, a clothing line, a jewelry line, an organic farm, appearances at theme parks, and the list goes on and on. A big budget blockbuster just makes sense.

Deadline reports that it’ll be anywhere from $160 million–$240 million. Just for comparison, both Inside Out and Jurassic World had budgets between $150 and $200 million. So I assume Hello Kitty: The Movie will be made out of gold and then painted pink.

A $160 million–$240 million budget for a cat?

Can you cay Garfield redux?

Show 2 footnotes

  1. The ubiquitous they, of course.
  2. No further confirmation is needed at the Charles manse; they have convinced the Astas that certain Pokémon cards will be worth gazillions of yen…in the future!…so that we must stop and run in to every Target we pass. Gaaah!

Something to say...?
