Frog and Toad, the stars of a series of children’s books in the 70’s written by Arnold Lobel, are going to get their own movie, the Sacramento Bee is reporting. The Jim Henson Company is set to begin production on a fully animated feature, with Cory Edwards (Hoodwinked!) directing. “Frog and Toad has tremendous value with parents who read these charming stories when they were children and are now sharing them with their own kids,” said Lisa Henson, who will produce the film. “With such high caliber talent on board, the delightful and funny adventures of these two great friends–with a nod to the classic ‘buddy movie’–will bring a whole new audience to their big screen debut.” Frog and Toad have been animated in the past, starring in a 1985 claymation TV special called Frog and Toad are Friends.
