No, really – we’re not kidding.
Because in a world where Transformers, Tonka Trucks and even Battleship all find a home on the screen, Sony Pictures has decided that Candy Land: The Movie should be next in line.
Now, we love candy about as much as anyone can. And there is something kind of amazing about a movie that’ll feature sweet and succulent looking Gumdrop Mountains, and the gooey and gluey Molasses Swamp.
But we think the redeeming feature of this particular film will be from a screenwriting change that Sony made this year. What did they do? They teamed up with Columbia pictures and Adam Sandler, that’s what.
That’s right. Adam Sandler – who’s already done more for gumballs than any candy store ever could.
Our love of Happy Madison Productions aside, we’re oddly kinda of excited about this movie. And by “kinda,” we really mean “THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST MOVIE EVER!” It’s a movie about candy, for Pete’s sake! CANDY!
Can you imagine the colors? Can you imagine the costumes? And if we may be a bit honest, can you imagine the sales? Because let’s face it: once this movie comes out, there will be Candy Land themed-parties galore. That means plates, napkins, banners, table cloths, balloons, goodie bags: you name it, and someone is going to manufacture it. And parties like that can create great buzz for online candy stores like ours.
Also? It’s a movie about candy. Really.
We can’t wait.
