Encouraged by Paramount’s success with its second SpongeBob feature, Warner Bros. is pressing forward on the development of a feature-length version of the Cartoon Network series Adventure Time.

The animated film will be produced by Chris McKay, the animation supervisor of The LEGO Movie and director of the forthcoming The LEGO Batman Movie, and Roy Lee (Vertigo Entertainment), one of 18 producers on The LEGO Movie.

Adventure Time creator Pen Ward will have some involvement with the film, according to Deadline, specifically “in writing and producing the feature version.” When Ward stepped away from day-to-day production on the TV series last fall, he expressed interest in writing a feature film version of the show someday. Cartoon Network Studios and Frederator Studios will also be involved in the theatrical version.
