Production[]

Development[]

On September 28, 2023, DreamWorks Animation announced an animated film adaptation of the book series The Wild Robot by Peter Brown, with Chris Sanders writing and directing, Jeff Hermann producing, and Sanders' longtime creative collaborator Dean DeBlois executive producing. Other crew members have also been revealed, including production designer Raymond Zibach, editor Mary Blee, and head of story Heidi Jo Gilbert.[1]

It will be the last film to be animated entirely by DreamWorks Animation in-house studios in Glendale.[2] Cartoon Brew reported in October 2023 that DreamWorks was moving away from producing films in-house to rely more on outsourcing to other studios after 2024, as part of a layoff by chief operating officer Randy Lake in a series of meetings the previous month. According to the report, Sony Pictures Imageworks in Canada was named as the animation producer for one of DreamWorks' two unannounced films scheduled for release in 2025.[2]

In March 2024, the cast list for the film was revealed as Lupita Nyong'o, Pedro Pascal, Catherine O'Hara, Bill Nighy, Kit Connor, Stephanie Hsu, Mark Hamill, Matt Berry, and Ving Rhames.[3]

It was also revealed that Kris Bowers is set to compose the film's original score for The Wild Robot, marking his first score for an animated film.[4] He is also the first person of color to score a DreamWorks film.

On April 23, 2024, it was announced that the released date for The Wild Robot moved one week later from its original release date, September 20, 2024.[5]
