The People Making the Candyland Movie Are Still Totally Serious

I'll Allow It

What if there was an operatic, ‘King Lear’-like civil war in a kingdom that just happened to be made completely out of candy?” And you take the action sequences seriously and you take the comedic elements seriously and there’s a real emotional journey the characters go on. Having just done that, twice over, with a giant plush panda, we thought “Maybe we could try it again with candy.” — Glenn Berger, screenwriter for Universal Studios’ Candyland.

We thought this was weird the first time around, but when you put it that way…

Fair enough. Godspeed, people making the Candyland movie.
