Sausage Party Director to take on The Jetsons

May 25, 2017

The Jetsons originally aired on ABC in 1962 and has been in syndication for years after its initial run. The series featured the day-to-day struggles of life in the distant future. It centers on family patriarch George Jetson and his family including his wife Jane, daughter Judy, son Elroy and family pet Astro. George’s adventures and mishaps in the future contributed to many aspects of pop culture and many thought that a big screen version fo the series was imminent.

With the success of the live action Flinstones movie in 1994, there was speculation that the advances in digital effects would mean that The Jetsons would be the next logical project. Unfortunately, Warner Brothers has been trying for years to get a live action version of the Hannah Barbera cartoon series The Jetsons off the ground.
