“The comedic misadventures of Gumball, Darwin, and the other quirky residents of Elmore will continue on HBO Max and Cartoon Network with The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie! (wt) and The Amazing World of Gumball: The Series (wt),” Warner Media wrote in a press release. “The projects mark the long-awaited return for the beloved series and are the first original productions to be greenlit out of Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, WarnerMedia Kids and Family’s flagship television animation studio within EMEA.”

“Staying true to its self-referential and meta comedic roots that endeared The Amazing World of Gumball to fans around the world, the movie begins when Gumball’s biggest fan finds the show’s missing episode and accidentally opens a portal connecting his world to Gumball’s cartoon world,” they continued. “Upon meeting his heroes, our super fan decides to team up with Gumball, Darwin, Anais, Richard, and Nicole to save them from a nefarious force overtaking Elmore, while inadvertently unleashing a threat of their very own. Utilizing the latest animation techniques and CG technology, the movie promises to be both a comedic, emotional, and epic conclusion for fans of the original series and a new beginning in establishing the world for the accompanying series. The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie! (wt) will be executive produced and directed by Ben Bocquelet (The Amazing World of Gumball) from a script written with Shane Mack (Coffee and Kareem). Sam Register, Vanessa Brookman and Sarah Fell are also on board as executive producers.”
