Bedrock’s getting ready to rumble.
Warner Bros. and WWE Studios announced today that they’re co-producing a new animated Flintstones movie. The feature will find classic Flintstones characters mingling with prehistoric wrestling personalities including Vince McMagma, John Cenastone, and CM Punkrock — voiced by real-life WWE staples Vince McMahon, John Cena, and CM Punk — at humanity’s very first WWE event. (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is somehow not involved, likely because this film is below his current pay grade.) The yet-untitled movie will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download sometime in early 2015.
This deal follows a similar collaboration between Warner Bros. and WWE for a new animated Scooby Doo film that finds the whole Scooby gang solving a mystery at Wrestlemania. That project was announced last summer; the movie will be released sometime in 2014.
“WWE is family-friendly entertainment, so partnering with Warner Bros. on a Flintstones/WWE project was a natural extension of our Scooby Doo deal,” WWE Studios president Michael Luisi said in a statement. “This new, animated feature allows us to showcase our brand with young fans and loyal Flintstones enthusiasts alike.”
