Michael Jackson’s Pet Chimp, ‘Bubbles’ to get a Biopic
Michael Jackson’s pet chimpanzee Bubbles is heading to the big screen. Deadline reports that the chimp will be the center of a stop-motion animated film aptly titled “Bubbles”, which will be produced by “Community” creator Dan Harmon.
The film is said to tell the story of “Michael Jackson’s life and history from the perspective of the pet chimp.”
Deadline notes that Bubbles “got a close-up view after being adopted by Jackson from an Austin, Texas research facility and given residence at the Neverland Ranch in 1983.” The chimp was the late King of Pop’s frequent companion until he became overaggressive and was moved to a monkey sanctuary in Florida.
So far, the film has no director or actors attached to.
