Hasbro Working on Animated ‘Play-Doh’ Movie Following the Success of ‘The Lego Movie’

Play-Doh has been a pretty huge part of the lives of most people. Most, if not all, grew up playing with a piece of clay and working it into a masterpiece using their own hands. The possibilities are endless with this toy, from simple Play-Doh ice cream to recreating the London bridge. Now, this pretty nifty piece of clay is set to star in its own film. Read on to learn more about this scoop.

Have you ever imagined that the Play-Doh that you once could not get through your day without as a kid will now star on the big screen? Yes, you’ve read that right! Hasbro, the company behind some of the best toys in the world, is planning on putting your favorite Play-Doh in front of the cameras.


According to Cinema Blend, Hasbro and 20th Century Fox will be creating a “Play-Doh” movie following the successful release of “The Lego Movie.” Paul Feig will be directing the film, which he wittily called a “Claymation.”

Feig slammed rumors that the upcoming Hasbro and 20th Century Fox animated movie will be live-action. The director also revealed that Jason Micallef will be writing the script for the movie and said that the initial draft was “hilarious.”

This news received mixed comments from moviegoers with some thinking that the movie will be a waste of time while others were ecstatic to see how Feig will pull off such a movie. Comic Book, on the other hand, thinks that there is one person who would be looking forward to the film – James Gunn. According to the outlet, the director used Play-Doh as a form of reward for crew members while filming “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

The “Play-Doh movie,” however, still has no release date as of the moment, as Feig is currently wrapping up several films including “Spy,” and the female-centric “Ghostbusters” reboot.
