NeoPets getting animated

Warner Bros. Pictures has bolstered its star stable with Ruki, Yurble, Uni and Kacheek. The studio has closed a deal with NeoPets to make CGI-animated features using 50 different pet species from the kids Web site. Warner Bros. and NeoPets have already determined a concept for the first film and have begun talks with an animation director they would not name.
