Illumination and Universal are officially prepping an animated reboot of the holiday classic Dr. Seuss' HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS!, Variety has confirmed.

Seuss' source material has undergone many interpretations, from stage to screen, the Grinch and his tale of holiday redemption has proven timeless to audiences, including Chuck Jones' 1966 original animated version and the 2000 live-action film starring Jim Carrey. The studios are planning on sticking to the book's source material and undertones to differentiate it from the Carrey rendition.

THE GRINCH will be the third Dr. Seuss re-animation, following HORTON HEARS A WHO and THE LORAX. Variety also reports that Illumination is prepping a CAT IN THE HAT adaptation.
