I first wrote about Monster High a few months ago and the response I got from that one post was shocking! You gals absolutely love Monster High! It has gotten so popular the Mattel isn’t stopping at dolls, books, and YouTube clips – they’re going bigger – a Monster High movie and TV show!
On Halloween, Nickelodeon premiered the first 30 minute episode of Monster High entitled ‘New Ghoul @ School’ and it was a huge success! It was just a Halloween Special, but since it was such a big hit there are now rumors of a full show. Unfortunately, that’s all we are going on – rumors. Sources are saying that more episodes on are on way, but Mattel has yet to either confirm or deny this. But judging by the popularity of the special they would be crazy not to make more full episodes.
Mattel, in conjunction with Universal Pictures, announced that it was developing a live-action Monster High musical! According to reports:
Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are developing MONSTER HIGH the movie for Universal Pictures. They will write the script for the live action musical movie described as Beetlejuice meets The Addams Family and it will feature “famous monsters including Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolfman undergoing the trials and tribulations of high school.”
Here’s a little info on those two – Afred Gough and Miles Millar were both producers on Hannah Montana: The Movie and Smallville and they have written for Spider-Man 2, Shanghai Noon and a few other BIG titles. So if these two are behind the Monster High flick then you know it’s going to be huge.
Currently there isn’t more info on this upcoming flick; it appears that Mattel is being pretty secretive when it comes to Monster High’s future. All we know is that there is a possibility that there will be more episodes and that a live-action movie is planned.
So what do you fans think? Are you more excited about a Monster High cartoon show or a Monster High movie with real people? Let us know in a comment below.
