Most studios now tend to focus on franchising, as well as the fact that the WB invests in cartoons more thanks to the success of the Lego movie. They said that Hanna-Barbera will be interested and attention not inferior to Harry Potter and the other franchises of DC Comics.

The film will be a combination of scenes in the real world and everyday activities as well as the characters Tom and Jerry created with CGI. The film will follow the style of the animated version but based on the physical comedy to draw laughs, which is expected to international audience.

The Tom and Jerry movie will be made next year as soon as the production of the film Shaft is ready for release in 2020. This is not a new thing when Tom and Jerry were once featured on the big screen in 1993. But it was poorly rated and not very well received at the time.
