Stray is being turned into an animated movie - or meowvie, if you prefer

Annapurna Animation has announced that they're developing a Stray animated film.

Well, this is delightful news. BlueTwelve Studio’s Stray is officially being turned into a movie, or meowvie if you’re a cat. I speak fluent cat, don’t question it.

In fact, GAMINGbible’s Eevee the cat even gave her own thoughts on the game. If you want something a little more legible though, we said, “Stray is stunning, creative, funny, and filled with moments that genuinely made my jaw drop. Whether you adore cats, or have some fundamental piece of your soul missing and don’t really care about them either way, this game is the real deal. It might be a little on the short side, but I was never anything less than utterly captivated and thoroughly entertained during the entire adventure.”

Take a look at Stray in action below.

If you haven’t yet played it, you really should - particularly as Stray is now also available on Xbox too. BlueTwelve Studio is yet to announce any kind of sequel, but it has been revealed that a Stray animated film is in the works. It’s being developed by Annapurna’s own animation studio, Annapurna Animation. It was Annapurna Interactive who published last year’s release.

Annapurna Animation released their debut project, Nimona, on Netflix to great acclaim earlier this year. According to Entertainment Weekly, a new project from Nimona’s co-creator Nick Bruno is in the works, with Ice Age director Chris Wedge also on board.

That project will be developed simultaneously to the Stray animated film which, at the moment, we know very little about in terms of who’s involved. Annapurna Animation lead Robert Baird teased, “It's a buddy comedy about a cat and a robot, and there's such a hilarious dynamic. So, there's comedy inherent in this, but there's not one human being in this movie.”

“I think it's one of the reasons why the game was incredibly popular, that you are seeing the world through the point of view of an adorable cat. How did they pull that off, and how are we going to pull that off in the movie? We will, even though sometimes it feels impossible, but we know that's the essence of the game and the key to telling the story." Well, I can’t wait for this one.
