CINAR Corp. is teaming with Sony Wonder Canada and Warner Home Video to produce the first feature-length Caillou adventure. An expansion of the award-winning, animated preschool TV series, the movie available on DVD and VHS across the U.S. and Canada in the fall of 2003.
Caillou airs daily on PBS KIDS’ “Ready-to-Learn” preschool programming service in the U.S. and on TELETOON network in Canada. The series tells a story from the child’s viewpoint with experiences and questions relevant to a curious preschooler.
The feature was written by Peter Svatek, who adapted the script for the upcoming 3D film Pinocchio 3001. He also wrote the songs with Jeff Zahn. Nick Rijgersberg takes on directing duties for Emmy-winning producer Lesley Taylor and co-producer Natalie Dumoulin. Leon Aronson provides the musical score.
