An animated Bob the Builder movie is in the works from Mattel Film, with Anthony Ramos voicing the well-known character, and Jennifer Lopez joining as a producer, according to Variety.

Ramos is expected to contribute more than just his voice to the protagonist. His personal heritage and life experiences, along with his rise to fame in In the Heights, are anticipated to enrich the film’s depiction of Caribbean culture and life. His portrayal of Bob is predicted to combine the character’s classical charm with a new, deep depth.

The movie aims to connect with its audience by incorporating themes of community strength, resilience, and unity. Ramos sees Bob the Builder as more than just an animated film – it’s a narrative that celebrates friendship, shared homes, and overcoming obstacles through love and cooperation. In Ramos’ words:

“For years, Bob the Builder’s characters have inspired young people around the world. A movie about friends working together, a celebration of a beautiful home they share, and how love can help to conquer any obstacle in your way. Can we fix it? Yes, we can!”

The animated film isn’t merely a tribute to the famous TV character. It adds a new dimension to his universe by telling the story of Roberto, or Bob, as he sets out to tackle an ambitious construction project in Puerto Rico. The location serves as both a backdrop and a character, allowing the movie to showcase the rich tapestry of Caribbean Latin nations and their vibrant communities. Felipe Vargas, known for the upcoming movie Rosario, has written the screenplay, which is expected to blend heartwarming storytelling with vivid visuals.

Producers alongside Ramos include Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico of ShadowMachine, as well as Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina from Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions. The collaborative project is overseen by a dedicated team at Mattel, which features Kevin McKeon, Ivan Sanchez, and Arturo Thur De Koós, as well as Natalie Haack Flores from Nuyorican.

In the realm of Mattel’s cinematic efforts, Bob the Builder stands out for its unique cultural immersion and storytelling. Following the global success and critical acclaim of the Barbie movie, expectations are high for this animated feature.

Bob the Builder will celebrate the spirit of cooperation and the richness of Caribbean life through its animated storytelling. With an outstanding team behind it, the movie is set to build not only structures but also bridges among cultures, stories, and hearts worldwide.
