Disney Television Animation will reportedly use a mix of 2-D animation and live-action clips to tell the story of the “emotional pickle and freewheeling peanut.”

The Futon Critic, Lisa Salamone, Senior VP of Production added, “We have the best and brightest production talent in the animation industry to help deliver the inspiring stories and enduring characters that will entertain kids and families and uphold Disney’s unparalleled animation legacy.”
