Netflix is going to produce the kids and family animated feature “Escape From Hat” from two time Academy Award nominated director Mark Osborne (“Kung Fu Panda”, “The Little Prince”) together with writer Adam Kline (“Artemis Fowl”, “The Clockwork War”). The screenplay is by Adam Kline and Osborne, based on the book of the same name by Kline, a new middle-grade novel that will be published by HarperCollins in Winter 2020.
Escape From Hat brings light to the ancient mysteries of magic. In a fairy tale where black cats are bad and magic rabbits are good, balance is threatened when one such rabbit is cast into a mysterious realm of danger and shadow. There, our desperate hero rallies an unexpected band of allies and undertakes an impossible quest to escape from inside a magician’s hat – and return to the human boy he dearly loves.
