- Twentieth Century Fox Animation has purchased the rights to Emily the Strange. which was first created as an anti-cool sticker. Emily later found her way to skateboards, t-shirts, her own apparel line, three bestsellers and an upcoming comic book. Creator Rob Reger will write the script, which centers on a rail-thin 13-year-old whose clothes are as black as her hair and as dark as the tone of her adventures.
