The classic board game Candyland has been a kid favorite since its debut in the 1940s. If your lil one can't get enough of Candy Cane Forest or Gum Drop Mountain, a Candyland-inspired birthday party is easy to put together and fun to attend! Get ready for a sugar high with these ideas on turning your house into a candy kingdom!
Maybe I'm still awestruck over the fantastical world brought to life in Coraline, but for whatever reason I'm actually kinda excited by the idea of a movie based on the Candyland game. Speaking strictly visuals (not, of course, how they'll make a story out of a board game), it seems like the time is right to try something like this, and it might turn out to be amazing.
The Candyland movie being developed by Universal will be live-action, but there's still much they could do with it. It makes me think of the live-action Grinch movie which, say what you will about how it never should have been made, etc. — I still think it's visually cool. The Candyland project now has Enchanted director Kevin Lima attached, and a writer, too: Etan Cohen (not to be confused with Ethan Cohen, ha) who has written a few things, including two movies I never thought to put in the same sentence — Tropic Thunder and Madagascar 2. He also wrote this movie. Discuss.
