We're not sure how they're going to pull this one off, as it's a live-action musical featuring a boy who's half-an-inch thick. You see, normal ol' Stanley Lambchop was flattened by a bulletin board one night, and now he's a bit two-dimensional. But his life is more exciting! Traveling is a breeze when all that's needed is an envelope and some stamps. In this musical, based on Jeff Brown's children's-lit series, Stanley travels the world, learning about other cultures while trying to find a way to be 3D again. We're just wondering which poor kid got smashed for the role.
