A second adaptation of the novel Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH is in the works. The first adaptation was the 80s Don Bluth cult classic The Secret of NIMH, my favorite animated film of all time.This thing has just been announced and I’m already shaking my head in disapproval. Sure Neil Burger (The Illusionist) may be directing it but it’s not even going to be fully animated but a live action with CG rodents. I swear if this turns out like Stuart Little or Alvin and the Chipmunks I will be very very very mad.
Also… If you haven’t seen The Secret of NIMH click the link below and watch it right on Hulu. It’s a classic in every sense of the word.
