Warner Bros. announced that “The Jetsons” will be featured in a new film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Sausage Party” co-director Conrad Vernon will direct the movie.

The cartoon – which features a family, their dog and robot maid living in Orbit City in a futuristic setting – first aired on television in 1962 and ran just one season with 24 episodes. It was revived for two more seasons in 1985 and 1987.

The Jetsons were featured in their own movie in 1990. They also met the Flintstones, their prehistoric counterparts, in an 1987 film.
