Weird Al to Do “Thing” for Cartoon Network
Disney and Final Fantasy. The Muppets and YouTube. Peanut butter and chocolate. All pairings of distinct concepts that, when they come together, add up to unexpectedly more than the sum of their parts. It is in this spirit that we present this information: Cartoon Network and Weird Al have signed a production deal.
Virtually nothing is known (or, at least, can be told to the public) about the project yet, except:
- It will be a live action feature film.
- Mr. Yankovic will direct and appear in it, but not star.
- The main character will be a teenager.
- Sadly, Yankovic says it will not be a sequel to UHF or a documentary about Winston Churchill.
“Weird Al” Yankovic’s secretive, intriguing blog post on the subject can be found here.
