It all started one afternoon with a pack of cookies.
Franklin’s Scott Sava was playing with his children more than a decade ago when he decided to use Animal Crackers as more than a snack.
“I came up with the idea you become a giraffe or a lion, or whatever it is you ate, and we played around the rest of the day like that,” Sava said. “Maybe a few weeks later, I started writing a children’s graphic novel.”
After some tinkering and getting the idea in front of the right pair of eyes, Sava and his wife, Donna, restructured the story as a script for a movie named after the pack of cookies. Netflix will premiere the children’s animated flick “Animal Crackers” July 24.
“It will be seen by potentially 200 million people in 100 something languages,” Donna Sava said. “It’s very exciting and it’s bittersweet for us because of all the stuff we’ve went through to get here, and we still have the scars but it’s exciting to see it. We are trying to stay positive.”
