Subject: Hello Kitty movie planned

Written By: Philip Eno on 07/06/15 at 6:36 am

If Angry Birds can have a movie, why not Hello Kitty?

The famous feline, originally drawn by designer Yuko Shimizu to appeal to kindergarten children, is being propelled towards the cinema by its owners Sanrio.

The project is expected to cost $162m to $242m (£104 to £155m) - including marketing costs - and is due in cinemas in 2019.

Sanrio already makes $759m (£488m) from the character each year. But did you know she's not a cat? She's supposed to be a school girl named Kitty White, who was born in the London suburbs.
