Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster, Angelica Pickles, and the rest of the Rugrats squad are coming to life in a live-action/CGI-enhanced movie from Paramount, The Hollywood Reporter reveals. The movie is based on Nickelodeon’s animated TV series from the ’90s about a bunch of
dumb babies running wild and doing baby things. The show ran for nine seasons and spawned three animated movies in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s.
David Bowers (director of the second, third, and fourth Diary of a Wimpy Kid films) will direct the new movie, Rugrats series creator Gábor Csupó will serve as the producer, alongside Karen Rosenfelt and Brian Robbins. David Goodman wrote the script.
The Rugrats film is expected to hit theaters on January 29, 2021, so only time will tell how everyone’s favorite ‘90s babies will translate to their live-action dopplegangers.
