The teens of Monster High are getting set to make their big screen debut.


After three successful generations of dolls, multiple animated projects, and two live-action TV movies, Monster High is preparing to head to the movie theaters.

Well-known movie producer Akiva Goldsman – via his Weed Road banner – is behind the development of the project along with Kevin McKeon and Arturo Thur De Koos from Mattel Films, Universal Pictures’senior vp of production Lexi Barta and creative executive of production development Jacqueline Garell, and Greg Lessans from Weed Road.

Mattel Films boss Robbie Brenner told The Hollywood Reporter of the news, “Monster High helps fans discover the great beauty in being true to yourself and celebrates the unique sensibilities at the core of who we are as individuals. We’re proud to partner with Universal Pictures and the brilliant Akiva Goldsman to usher this important message to audiences worldwide.”

“I’ve been fascinated by Monster High since my daughters were obsessed with the dolls as kids. I’m thrilled to once again join forces with Robbie Brenner and our friends at Mattel to help bring this iconic property to life,” said Goldsman.

No director or writer is yet attached to the project.

Mattel Films is very busy shopping its properties around Hollywood following the massive success of Barbie in 2023. Masters of the Universe is currently at Amazon/MGM, Daniel Kaluuya is developing Barney, Vin Diesel is working on Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, J.J. Abrams is working on Hot Wheels, and Goldsman is developing Major Matt Mason for Tom Hanks. Other options are in the works for American Girl, Bob the Builder, Magic 8 Ball, Polly Pocket, Thomas & Friends, UNO, View-Master, and Wishbone.

There is no word as of yet as to a potential target year for the release of Monster High.
