The Hollywood Reporter brings word that an animated version of Toto is being developed by Warner Bros.’ Warner Animation Group and writer Mark Burton (Madagascar, Gnomeo & Juliet).

The new film will be based on the children’s book Toto: The Dog-Gone Amazing Story of The Wizard of Oz, written by Michael Morpurgo (War Horse) and illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark. The story reimagines the classic Wizard of Oz story through the perspective of Dorothy’s dog.

From the book’s description on Amazon: “‘I was there,’ Papa Toto said, and those magic words sent shivers down my spine. It was going to be the Wizard story. ‘Dorothy and me were both there.’ We were all silent, snuggled up together, waiting, waiting. Then he began…” 

Jared Stern (The Lego BatmanThe Lego Ninjago Movie) and Winsor Yuan will serve as executive producers for the Toto animated adaptation via their A Stern Talking To banner.

Other projects in the works from Warner Animation Group includes an animated Cat in the Hat feature, Lego spinoff The Billion Brick Race, and Jorge Gutierrez’s Book of Life.
