Vernon is still attached to the project as a consultant and gave an update on his status to ComingSoon while promoting The Addams Family 2, which he co-directed with Greg Tiernan. Vernon stated that he loves the idea that the team came up with for the upcoming The Jetsons movie and that it’s still “plugging along.”
Back in 2015, Matt Lieberman (Doctor Dolittle: Tail to the Chief) was hired to provide the screenplay for an animated Jetsons film. George Jetson and his family previously starred in a 1990 animated film, titled Jetsons: The Movie. A live-action series is also in development.
