‘The Amazing World of Gumball’ Set To Return As Both A Movie And Series

HBO Max and Cartoon Network said last Tuesday that they have given greenlights to The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie! and The Amazing World of Gumball: The Series. The projects are Warnermedia’s first original production greenlights out of London-based Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe (formerly Cartoon Network Studios Europe).

Gumball creator Ben Bocquelet is directing and executive producing the film from a script written with Shane Mack (Coffee & Kareem). Sam Register, Vanessa Brookman, and Sarah Fell are also executive producers. The film will serve as an “epic conclusion” for the original series, which wrapped up in 2019 after six seasons, while establishing the world for the new, upcoming series.

Bocquelet will direct and executive produce the movie (it’s a working title), which features a script written by Shane Mack. Sam Register, Vanessa Brookman and Sarah Fell will also be executive producers as the projects are the first original productions to be greenlit out of the Register- and Brookman-run Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe. The original series from the France-born Bocquelet won an International Emmy, nine BAFTA Children’s Awards, six British Animation Awards and three Annie Awards.

“We could not think of a better show to kick off our first batch of project greenlights under the Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe banner,” Sam Register and Vanessa Brookman, co-heads of Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, said in a statement. “With this movie and new series, we have an ‘amazing’opportunity with Ben to provide a satisfying conclusion that Gumball fans have been hoping for while also establishing the next chapter of this charming, colorful and inventive series.”

Amy Friedman, head of Kids & Family Programming at Warner Bros, added: “Gumball is one of those rare characters who effortlessly seems to tell us the truth, make us laugh and unify people, and now Bocquelet returns to bring Gumball back where he belongs – on an interdimensional journey right back to the fans.”
