Warner Bros. Animation to create a kids’ show with Ellen DeGeneres as a young girl

Talk-show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres is currently developing a new show called Little Ellen, which follows a seven-year-old version of herself. The project is in development at Ellen Digital Ventures and Warner Bros. Animation.

Here’s the breakdown of the project:

In the 2D animated series, Little Ellen will go on adventures, exploring imaginative lands and meeting new friends. The show is likely to include songs, as well. But it’s not all fun and games: Little Ellen takes big risks, makes huge mistakes but she’s always able to laugh at herself and bounce back when things don’t go as planned.

Warner Bros. Animation and DeGeneres have previously teamed on the adaption of Dr Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham, slated to hit Netflix in the fourth quarter of 2019.

DeGeneres’ digital business also includes gaming app Heads Up!, with over 42 million downloads till date. In addition, EDN produces Ellen on the Go podcast, an audio catch-up of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
