Producer-distrib Constantin Film said Wednesday that a sequel, tentatively titled “Wickie auf grosser fahrt” (Vicky’s Big Journey), will begin production this summer, and it’s set to become Germany’s first live-action 3D film.

Munich-based Rat Pack, a Constantin subsid, and Constantin will co-produce, with Rat Pack’s Christian Becker again overseeing production.

Christian Ditter is taking over directing duties from Michael Herbig.

“Vicky” is based on the popular children’s book by Swedish author Runer Jonsson.It has benefited from massive recognition and a strong nostalgia factor thanks to a 1970s TV toon series.
