An adaptation of the comic Firebreather by Phil Hester and Andy Kuhn has been in the works for a while. The premiere date has finally been announced. On Wednesday, November 24 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT, Firebreather will become Cartoon Network's first original CGI movie.  
 
The movie is directed by Peter Chung (Aeon Flux) and deals with a teenage boy named Duncan, struggling to find his place as a half-human and half-Kaiju. While trying to focus on homework, Duncan also has to deal with his dad, a 120-foot, fire-breathing Kaiju from the depths of the earth, wanting him to follow in his footsteps. Basically, Firebreather is the story of a boy choosing between two different paths put before him by his parents. 
 
Firebreather is written by Jim Krieg (Ben 10: Alien Swarm) and executive produced by Julia Pistor (Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events). The cast includes Jesse Head as Duncan, Dana Delany as Margaret, Kevin Michael Richardson as Belloc, Reed Diamond as Barnes, Amy Davidson as Jenna, Tia Texada as Isabel, Dante Basco as Kenny and Josh Keaton as Troy.
