Jon M Chu is set to direct the film adaptation of Dr Seuss’ iconic 1990 book ‘Oh, The Places You’ll Go!’ for Warner Animation Group and Dr. Seuss Enterprises, deadline reports.

In an Instagram post, J M Chu confirmed his involvement, stating: ‘My first animated film! … Couldn’t be more excited to go on this adventure. My journey from falling in love with animation as a kid to being able to direct a feature length musical of such an iconic title is truly emblematic of ‘Oh the Places You’ll Go’. Don’t stop dreaming folks!!!’

The production company Bad Robot will adapt the iconic book for film, with acclaimed director J J Abrams serving as producer on the film along with Hannah Minghella, the company’s Head of Motion Pictures.

The animated feature is scheduled to debut in 2027.
