Doug Sweetland, who directed the wonderful Looney Tunes-style Pixar short Presto, has been tapped to helm Sony Pictures Animation’s The Familiars. Per Heat Vision, “The story centers on three young wizard apprentices who, after being whisked away by an evil queen, must rely on their animal companions, or familiars — an alley cat, a blue jay and a tree frog — to escape.” Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson will write the screenplay based on their recently-released children’s book. Sam Raimi and Josh Donen are executive producing.
Sweetland worked at Pixar for 16 years and earned Annie awards for his work on Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, and Toy Story 2. He earned an Annie nomination and an Oscar nomination for Presto.
