Little Nightmares TV series coming from Henry Selick and the Russos

The makers of Coraline and Civil War are teaming up for Little Nightmares

Horror-themed puzzle game Little Nightmares, which is a very special blend of adorable and creepy, is getting a TV series and there’s some seriously impressive talent behind it.

THR reports that stop-motion animation king Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline) will direct the pilot episode and potentially more, and that Anthony and Joe Russo (the duo behind Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War) will develop and produce the show.

The game “follows a 9-year-old girl named Six who finds herself trapped on the bottom of a terror-filled ship named the Maw. With hunger and the depths one goes to satiate that hunger as the themes, the storyline follows Six as she tries to escape from the ship while evading capture and death at the hands of characters named the Janitor, the Twin Chefs and the Lady.”

There’s nothing in the report about what form exactly the show will take, but this is very exciting news. It’s been far too long since we’ve seen anything from the great Henry Selick, and we can’t wait to see what his take on this material (which really is a perfect fit for him) will look like.
