The Animaniacs Movie is an upcoming American live-action/animated musical adventure comedy film directed by Adam McKay, written by Tom Ruegger, and produced by Steven Spielberg. It serves as a direct continuation to the original 1993-99 series of the same name, ignoring the events of the 2020-23 revival. Spielberg also serves as an executive producer.

The Animaniacs Movie is scheduled to be in the United States on December 10, 2023, by Warner Bros. Pictures via HBO Max, and internationally on December 26, 2023.


In the early 1930s, siblings Yakko, Wakko, and Dot Warner are created by African-American cartoonist Willie Whacker. Despite being praised for their character development, the trio's cartoonish behavior causes them to be locked in the water tower of the Warner Bros. Studio Lot in Burbank, California.

In 1993, the siblings are discovered by filmmaker Steven Spielberg who offers them a deal to create "Animaniacs", a five-season animated TV series based on their misadventures along with a supporting cast of cartoon characters in search of stardom; and if the Warners agree, Spielberg will grant them their freedom. The trio delightfully accepts, much to the ire of Thaddeus Plotz, the newly-appointed CEO of Warner Bros., who still belives that the Warners shoukd stay isolated in the tower. After the show’s success, and by the series finale in 1998, the Warners are given their freedom to which they pull off "one last tower escape" on New Year’s Eve 1999, thus vanishing into the night after a long time of zaniness and troublemaking.

Twenty years later, Destiny Drake, the teenage daughter of D.J. Drake, and her brother Damien III, pitch to Warner Bros. executives the idea of a reunion special featuring the Animaniacs cast, who have since gone their separate ways after the Warners disappearance. Destiny and Damien recruit Kelly after being given 48 hours to reunite the Animaniacs cast. Though reluctant, Kelvin eventually decides to go with them; using Chicken Boo as a cover to maintain their job. Unbeknownst to them, the lot is taken hostage by hired mercenaries and old enemies of the Animaniacs television series.

During a flight to Australia, the Warners inadvertently cause the plane to crash into Ireland, forcing them to hitchhike to Belfast where they get a boat to London and more! how will they have freedom
