Universal has hired “Kung Fu Panda” / “Kung Fu Panda 2″ writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger to pen the screen play for Candyland. Kevin Lima is currently attached to direct the project, with Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir producing.
The board game, which was set up at Universal when it made its six-year deal with Hasbro in 2008, has a story centered around finding the lost king of Candy Land. The players wind their way through enchanted lands such as Candy Cane Forest and Gum Drop Mountain, see characters such as Princess Frostine and Gramma Nutt as well as the evil Lord Licorice who can make players lose a turn.
