Yabba-Dabba Don’t! 

Warner Bros. is teaming with WWE Studios to co-produce a Flintstones animated feature film, scheduled for direct-to-Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download release in early 2015. 

Just announced this morning via Deadline HollywoodFred and Barney will soon share the screen with WWE superstars “Vince McMagma” (voiced by Vince McMahon), “John Cenastone” (John Cena) and “CM Punkrock” (CM Punk). 

The WWE already has a Scooby Doo Wrestlemania animated match-up already in production. Michael Luisi, President, WWE Studios said in the press release:

“WWE is family-friendly entertainment, so partnering with Warner Bros. on a Flintstones/WWE project was a natural extension of our Scooby Doo deal. This new, animated feature allows us to showcase our brand with young fans and loyal Flintstones enthusiasts alike.”

UPDATE: I was just told that the creative personnel on this project (led by designer Shane Glines) is quite good. More details to come.
