There’s a new animation on the way inspired by Juice WRLD’s music.
The project is currently in the development stage over at a new media company called Modern Magic, built by former MGM Co-President of Production Adam Rosenberg and the co-director of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Rodney Rothman.
The company has 20 features and series in various stages of development. Among them are an animated feature inspired by the music of Juice WRLD, written by “Daily Show” correspondent Jaboukie Young-White. https://t.co/qV57R4fXIt

Reportedly, Jaboukie Young-White of The Daily Show is set to help pen the film, and Juice WRLD’s mother Carmella Wallace, she will play as executive producer along with manager Peter Jideonwo, Lil Bibby, and a few other individuals.
“When it comes to animation, we don’t see ourselves as fortune-tellers. We see ourselves as recognizing where we already are,” said Rosenberg in a statement. “Animation is a major source of creative and commercial growth, it easily travels around the world, and it is a driving force behind artistic breakthroughs in every medium. Our projects are designed to sit at the intersection of entertainment, culture, and technology, and what we do in animation feeds into our distinct take on live-action.”
“Helping lead the team that made Into the Spider-Verse was a life-altering experience that forever changed what I thought was possible,” Rothman included. “We’ve started Modern Magic to keep going and see what else a motivated, ragtag group of artists can accomplish when they take the leap.”
