Annapurna Animation, which has the same parent company as Annapurna Interactive, the distributor of Stray, was in charge of animation production for the first time in the animated movie `` Nimona '', which was distributed on Netflix in 2023 and gained popularity. Entertainment Weekly reports that Annapurna Animation is planning to make an animated film of Stray with Nick Bruno, the director of Nimona, and Chris Wedge , the director of the 3DCG animated film ' Ice Age .' It became clear.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in late August 2023, Robert Baird, who heads Annapurna Animation, said of Stray, 'This is a game that questions everything that makes us human. There are no humans in. It's a cat-robot buddy comedy with very hilarious dynamics, which means that while Stray's animated films are inherently comedic, there's not even a single human. I think that's one of the reasons why Stray has become so incredibly popular.'

In addition, Baird said there are 'very emotional things' that creators try to capture when making games into movies. In response, BlueTwelve Studio, the developer of the game, explained, ``I think that'Hopepunk', where optimism is a form of resistance, will be the category of this work.' Furthermore, 'If we can get the film adaptation right, I think it's going to be the best hope punk movie ever made,' notes Baird.

The release date and method of the movie version of Stray has not been disclosed.
