In October 2019, Dreamworks announced a film based on the book series by Aaron Blabey. It was said to have a similar twist on the heist genre that Shrek did on fairy tales, and what Kung Fu Panda did for the kung fu genre. The film would mark the feature directorial debut of Pierre Pierfel, a DWA vet who came up through the ranks as the director of the award-winning short Bilby, and as an animator on the Kung Fu Panda franchise.
