Hasbro's Micronauts toyline will receive a feature film reboot from How To Train Your Dragon filmmaker Dean DeBlois, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
DeBlois will write and direct Micronauts, based on the 1970s toyline, which in turn was based on a Japanese toyline called Microman. The toys later spawned a Marvel comic book.
The original story centered on a group of freedom fighters in a subatomic kingdom, however THR describes the new story as focusing on "intergalactic explorers."
A previous script from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick was previously commissioned through J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions. DeBlois' film will be produced through Hasbro's Allspark Productions.
Hasbro has set Micronauts for a June 4, 2021 theatrical release.
