Ron Howard is reported to be directing his first animated film.
The 68-year-old filmmaker is said to be working on Netflix’s Netflix film “The Shrinking of Treehorn,” which is an adaptation of Florence Perry Hyde’s 1971 children’s book of the same name with illustrations by Edward Gore.
According to Deadline, the script for the film was adapted by the author of “Peter the Rabbit” Rob Lieber, as well as the studio “Imagine Entertainment” Howard together with Animal Logic.
The film was described as a music scene in New York during the holidays.
The story is about a young boy named Drevorog, who one day begins to shrink, but his parents do not seem to notice.
Howard became highly respected in Hollywood, and he was impressed as a director of films such as “Frost / Nixon” and “Beautiful Mind”.
He also entered a far, far galaxy when he replaced original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller at the helm of Solo: A Star Wars Story 2018.
Explaining the situation earlier this year, he told The Hollywood Reporter: “I realized that this difference created a split to such an extent that they would not be able to continue working together and it was very unfortunate because I like Phil and Chris and I also very fond of them.
“When I looked at the footage and read the script I liked, I felt I understood what the studio and Lucasfilm were looking for when I finished the film and re-shot part of the film, and in several places I thought to change my mind about a few scenes they were open to.
“I had some really comforting conversations with Phil and Chris that let me know they’re not leaving because I’m coming in.”
