Lengthy earlier than the times of Instagram and Netflix, I bear in mind flipping by way of pics on my View-Grasp — the peak of expertise on the time — and considering to myself that nothing may probably be cooler than having a 3D image of a giraffe in entrance of my eyeballs any time I wished. Know-how has come fairly far since then. As we speak, essentially the most related toy you may discover to a View-Grasp might be a VR headset, however there’s nostalgia within the simplicity of such a novel toy that allowed youngsters to see desert landscapes and snapshots from world wide with a single click on. A lot nostalgia, the truth is, that MGM studios and Mattel are partnering to develop a live-action movie based mostly totally on the View-Grasp, The Hollywood Reporter completely realized.
Mattel is continually upping its sport on the subject of releasing enjoyable motion pictures for a youthful viewers, together with Barbie: Fairytopia (2005) and Barbie within the Nutcracker (2001). Possibly the View-Grasp film will take a few of Mattel’s surprisingly insightful dialogue and The Wizard of Oz‘s classic appeal to place an entire new type of film onto the display.
This is not the primary time a View-Grasp film has been steered. Again in 2009, DreamWorks and Ok/O Paper Merchandise deliberate to make the film a actuality, however the challenge later grew to become inactive. Whereas no particular author or filmmaker has been introduced for the challenge simply but, we’re excited to see what a film a few basic youngsters’ toy can be like. In spite of everything, if Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear could make it by way of 4 motion pictures, then the View-Grasp can have one, proper?
