When I first saw this today I thought it was a Halloween prank…or a WAY too early April Fools joke…but it’s neither of those. It was confirmed today that there really is a live action “Barney and friends” movie in the works!
According to People Magazine, Mattel films has teamed up with Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya to bring the big purple dinosaur back to the big screen “Barney was a ubiquitous figure in many of our childhoods, then he disappeared into the shadows, left misunderstood. We’re excited to explore this compelling modern-day hero and see if his message of ‘I love you, you love me’ can stand the test of time”
If you don’t remember the “I love you, you love me” song…it was my generations nightmare for parents…kinda like Baby Shark!
Just imagine your kid listening to that over…and over…and over…every damn day! But, is it worse than Baby Shark?
If you don’t remember anything about Barney, you’re lucky. It was a daily kids show that ran from 1992 – 2009 and actually featured some very young stars that we know today! Both Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez appeared on the show back in the day.
We don’t have any more big details yet about the movie, but it’s producer, Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya is best known for his work in “Get Out” which….I’m hoping was a lot darker than this Barney movie will be
