Outfit 7 has teamed up with Mythology Entertainment to develop a Talking Tom and Friends movie.

The Talking Tom and Friends range of apps recently passed the two billion downloads mark, and now the characters are heading to the big screen in an animated film franchise.

“Two billion is an incredible triumph," said Outfit7 founder and CEO, Samo Login.

"We’re beyond proud that our Talking Tom and Friends cast of characters has brought so much joy, laughter and smiles to people across the globe.

"The new film we are producing with Mythology Entertainment adds a whole new level of excitement and momentum for our brands that will enable fans of all ages to connect with our characters in a whole new way. We’re delighted Brad Fisher and his team recognise the fun, loveable and powerful force of Talking Tom and Friends.”

The brand also has a CGI animated series on the way alongside a busy licensing and merchandising programme.

“We at Mythology are among the two billion fans of Talking Tom and Friends, so we’re very excited to join Samo and Outfit7 in taking these characters from cell phone and tablet screens to big movie screens worldwide,” said Mythology co-founder Brad Fischer.

“Tom, Angela, Ginger, Ben, Pierre and Gina have been entertaining kids and their parents for years, and we look forward to giving these beloved friends their own story for families everywhere to enjoy.”
