“We are incredibly proud to re-introduce the ‘Pink Panther’ to a brand new generation in such a fresh way. Even more exciting is the chance to work again with our dear friends Walter Mirisch and Julie Andrews, as well as the talented David Silverman, whose enthusiasm convinced us to ‘Think Pink!’,” said Glickman.
“I am proud that the ‘Pink Panther’– both the feature films and the great library of cartoons created by David De Patie and Friz Freleng that sprang from it– continues to be one of the brightest jewels in the crown of Mirisch films. Now, for the first time, the live action franchise will be united with the world- famous cartoon character in a new hybrid feature film. I am excited by our concept and I look forward to an outstanding movie entertainment,” said Mirisch.
“I am delighted that the legacy of Blake’s iconic ‘Pink Panther’ franchise will continue to grow in its new hybrid form. It is exciting that the quintessential ‘next step’ for our beloved Panther will be enjoyed by a 4th generation of audiences. I feel that Blake is encouraging us on,” said Andrews. Source
