20th Century Fox Animation is bringing Jennifer Weiner’s recently-published children’s book The Littlest Bigfoot to the screen, with Variety revealing that an animated feature is in the works under producers Chris Bender and Jake Weiner.

The Littlest Bigfoot follows “a pair of 12-year-old girls — one human, one Bigfoot — both desperately out of place in their own worlds, but who find each other and fight to keep the hidden Bigfoot world safe.”

“I loved writing this book, and spending time with these three misfit kids who discover their own worth,” said author Weiner, who is currently working on the sequel, Little Bigfoot, Big City, which is set for release in November 2017. “I couldn’t ask for a better partner than Fox in bringing their story to the big screen.”
