Taika Waititi, director of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok is creating a movie about Michael Jackson’s one-time pet Bubbles. I know what you’re thinking… Where do they come up with this stuff and the answer to that is nobody knows. According to RadioTimes.com, “The movie will be a stop motion animation and, pegged as a “coming-of-age” story, Bubbles will be told in the vein of Anomalisa, which came from the same production company Starburns Industries and dealt with loneliness and the human condition.
“It’s an idea that fascinates me and one I want to develop further,” said Waititi of Bubbles. “Most people know I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan, so the main thing for me is to make sure it’s respectful of him and his legacy.
“I’m not interested in making a biopic; I want to focus on telling a story that blends fact and fantasy, about an animal trying to make sense of the world.
“This film is not about Michael Jackson because that’s not a story for me to tell — or a story I’d be comfortable telling — it’s about a chimpanzee’s fascinating journey through the complex jungle of human life.” This sounds as absurd as a movie can get, but you can no longer complain about getting movies like this anymore. With movies like Transformers, a movie about cars that turn into alien robots that were based on toys, The Angry Birds Movie, a movie thats based on an app and now there’s a movie about EMOJI’S! So this movie about Michael Jackson’s pet Bubbles is feasible.
