Who among us couldn’t play with the Hot Wheels as a kid and pretend they were real cars when they were across the kitchen floor? With a few pieces of diecast metal, you can play all those nut car chases and stunts that can enchant a child’s brain. Soon, those reactions could happen on the big screen, as parent companies Mattel and Warner Bros. Pictures have just announced a Hot Wheels movie.
Not much is known yet, but a press release issued by the two companies said, “The high-throttle action film will bring this beloved, multi-generational franchise to life and showcase the world’s hottest and smoothest cars, monster trucks and motorcycles.” I also know that JJ Abrams’ bad robot production company, recent Star Wars, responsible for the Star Trek and Mission: Impossible franchise, will have a hand in creating it.
It’s hard to imagine what might be in a Hot Wheels movie, but since the property has no underlying story attached, the possibilities are endless. One thing we know will be live-action. This means that it is impossible to see cars like Pixar come to life The car A meta story about a franchise, or a kid immersing himself in a hot wheels world, e.g. Lego Movie.
In the past, Hot Wheels has created a cast of drivers to go with a car like the 2003 series Highway 35 World Race And its 2005 spinoff, Hot Wheels Axial Racer. Another series called Hot Wheels Battle Force 5 was produced from 2009-11. These were animated, however, allowing for stories of aliens and trans-dimensional races. Probably The best driver in the world The movie, based on a hot wheels-branded video game and featuring a cameo by Mario Andretti, hints at what to expect.
Mattel has in fact developed a number of films based on his other toy brands. In 2023, a Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie is set to hit theaters. Mattel Films also says it is making films based on toys such as American Girl, Masters of the Universe, Polly Pocket, Rock ’em Sock’ M Robots, and Thomas & Friends, as well as Magic 8 Ball, UNO and Viewmaster. .
Some of these words are rather suspicious, but if Hot Wheels can bring some exciting car action to the big screen, we’ll be here for it.
