Ethan just sent me this link to an article claiming that DreamWorks has just purchased the rights to make a movie about the View-Master. While I can think of many movies about particular games (Clue, Jumanji, etc.), and there are certainly plenty of movies about particular toys, I’m not sure I can think of another example of a movie being based on such a specific icon of childhood. Early rumors predict a sort of 80s nostalgia aesthetic, though I also wouldn’t be surprised to see relatively contemporary special effects. I wonder if it will be in 3D (that would make sense). Regardless, I’m pretty curious and excited.
