Amazon Studios, Amazon’s original content production arm, announced today that it has optioned a film project called Comet, a movie about one of Santa’s reindeer not named Rudolph.

Yes, it’s been done before. Kind of:

But that doesn’t mean it won’t be a very different story. Besides, Prancer came out in 1989.

Comet is described as “the underdog story of a small but determined reindeer who will face seemingly insurmountable odds to save his family’s home and join Santa’s elite sleigh team.”

Different enough.

Under “creative notes” on the project page, it says, “Capitalizes on a movie-going trend of ‘origin stories’ by creating one for a universally known Christmas character in a family-friendly yet sophisticated way. Script utilizes common traits from successful ‘hero’s journey’-type mythologies as well as the beats/formatting that Hollywood studios look for. ‘Comet’ has the necessary components and potential to be the next great animated franchise.”

Earlier this week, Amazon Studios put out a couple elevator pitches for other movie projects it has in the works.
