In addition to all of his upcoming Peter Jackson collaborations, Steven Spielberg has found the time to return to his beloved animated series, Animaniacs. According to Indiewire, the mega-director and producer, who developed the show on the heels of Tiny Toons Adventures, is reteaming with Warner Bros. to bring back the Warner brothers and Warner sister.
Just last year, Animaniacs joined Netflix’s streaming options, and the core voice cast—Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell, and MacNeille—announced a tour. Spielberg’s Amblin Television is behind the reboot, which has yet to land a network, but should generate tons of interest once that search begins in earnest. The popular cartoon featured the voices of such golden-voiced individuals as Tress MacNeille and Maurice LaMarche, and scored multiple Daytime Emmys in its original run. So better start working on your state capitals again.
