Superfudge is a classic and it makes sense that Disney+ is going to create an original movie around the best-selling book by Judy Blume. This is going to be a great family movie that is centered around family and change. We wonder what sort of tweaks will be made to the classic to bring it up to speed for kids and family, but the concept of “Fudge” spans time. This looks like we are going to get a lot of NYC as the movie will have Fudge running away while Peter is watching him in NYC, a little different from the original.
“SUPERFUDGE” (Disney+ Original Movie)
Produced by: The Russo Brother’s AGBO
Written by: Amos Vernon and Nunio Randazzo
Based on the global, best-selling book by Judy Blume and from Joe and Anthony Russo of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Superfudge” centers on The Hatcher family. Twelve-year-old Peter Hatcher almost has it all — two boomer parents, a perfect though slightly odorous turtle, his very own bedroom in a cramped Manhattan apartment, a ride-or-die best friend Jimmy and eight whole weeks of summer vacation ahead of him — with just one massive problem. Farley Drexel Hatcher, his 3-year-old brother, aka Fudge. Fudge isn’t just a problem; he is a tornado, a tsunami, a superstorm, an arctic bomb of chaos and destruction. And when Fudge runs away under Peter’s watch, an epic family adventure across NYC ensues. One that ultimately brings these two together just as their world is turned upside down by the arrival of a brand-new problem — an infant baby sister — reminding us all that nothing is ever constant … except change.
