Links to our threads on recent Illumination productions Despicable Me (2010) and Hop (2011).

A friend of mine gave my kids a few Uglydolls (or, for the search engine, Ugly Dolls) for Christmas (or was it their birthdays?) a few years ago. My daughter has since drawn pictures of one or two of them. So suffice it to say we're fans.

Chris Meledandri's Illumination To Turn Uglydoll Into Animated Film
EXCLUSIVE: Illumination Entertainment chief Chris Meledandri has acquired rights to turn the Uglydoll franchise into an animated feature film. Universal Pictures and Illumination will develop the film based on the global line of Uglydoll characters launched by husband-wife artist team David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim. Meet the Fockers scribe Larry Stuckey will write the script, inspired by the dolls and stories created by Horvath and Kim. Meledandri will produce, and Horvath and Kim will be executive producers through their Pretty Ugly LLC banner. The plan is to start with the feature and then branch into a wider range of media opportunities. . . .
