Bakugan Battle Brawlers being Adapted to Live Action

The Bakugan toys follow a long standing tradition of animated series that revolve around “battlers” who compete for glory and to restore balance to the world, all the while providing 23 minute commercials to sell toys.

And now the unfolding collectable transformer orbs will be adapted into a big screen live action film for Universal.

Collider shares:

The property centers on a group of creatures called Bakugan and the battle brawlers who own them. The Japanese series found its first success in the United States and Canada — three seasons have aired on the Cartoon Network, with a fourth on the way. After spawning a popular strategic card game, the Toy Industry Association named Bakugan Battle Brawlers the “Property of the Year” in 2009.

According to TheWrap, Scott Stuber (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Jon Mone (The Wolfman) will produce along with Ronnen Haray of Spin Master Ltd.

Considering the heart of these properties is to sell toys/games, its hard to get behind a big screen adaptation.

My kids watch the show, and even they can’t tell you the overall plot as the episodes tend to center on the battles more than any real story. I am sure its in there somewhere.

The toys are neat though.
