‘Clockwork Girl’ To Get Animated

Arcana Studios has announced a partnership with Montréal-based Telefilm Canada to bring their popular all-ages mini-series “Clockwork Girl” to life in an animated film.

In the press release, “Clockwork Girl” co-creator Kevin Hanna is quoted as saying, “I’m not sure how much I can say, other then I am thrilled that things are going as well as I ever hoped they could be. Working in Hollywood, I know that adaptations are a gamble that often taint the source material. So far everything is going right with ’Clockwork Girl,’ the people involved really understand the spirit of the book and the characters. I think fans of the book will be very happy with where this ends up.”

In a twist on the story of “Pinocchio,” “Clockwork Girl” — which hit shelves last year — follows the tale of a nameless girl robot that is given the gift of life by her scientist creator. Setting out in a fascinating new world, the robot girl meets and befriends a mutant boy, and the two must fight to remain friends in the face of their two warring families.
