Babar heading to the silver screen

Proving that Hollywood will make just about anything into a movie we have news that the “Babar” is being adapted for a feature film. According to Animated News, The Twilight Saga producers have acquired the rights to the character with the intent of making a live action/CG version.

And hey, since it’s being produced by the same people who produced the Twilight movies, expect sparkling elephants too.
