Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out, Black Panther) will be producing a live-action take on that beloved purple dinosaur from your childhood - Barney.

BUT apparently the film will explore the dark side of Barney.

Daniel explained: “Barney taught us, ‘I love you, you love me. Won't you say you love me too?’ That's one of the first songs I remember, and what happens when that isn't true? I thought that was really heartbreaking. I have no idea why but it feels like that makes sense. It feels like there's something unexpected that can be poignant but optimistic. Especially at this time now, I think that's really, really needed.” 

We don't know a lot right now, as plot details and casting are not being released. 

Please don't ruin my childhood.
