The Dam Keeper universe keeps growing. Just ten days after announcing a short-form Dam Keeper series for Hulu Japan, Tonko House has announced a deal to develop a feature film with 20th Century Fox Animation.
Kondo and Tsutsumi will direct The Dam Keeper feature film, which is being produced by Kane Lee, an independent producer formerly of Jane Startz Productions and Blue Sky Studios. The project has been shepherded by Fox Animation exec Darlene Caamaño Loquet, who will continue to oversee for the studio. Screenwriter John Henry Hinkel, originally brought aboard by Tonko House to develop a feature-length pitch, will work on the project as well.
“We are thrilled to be in business with Tonko House and honored to help develop their groundbreaking short into a feature,” said Fox Animation president Vanessa Morrison.
