New “Cat in the Hat” coming in 2026

An all star cast of Hollywood’s best and funniest are coming together with Dr Suess to make a new theatrical version of The Cat in the Hat!

SNL Alum Bill Hader will have the lead roll of the car, with Quinta Brunson (Abbott Elementary), Bowen Yang (SNL), Xochitl Gomez (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness), Matt Berry (What We Do in The Shadows) and Paula Pell (Girls5eva) in supporting rolls.

A global theatrical release of March 6, 2026 has been set. In this new feature version, directed and written by Alessandro Carloni and Erica Rivinoja, The Cat takes on his toughest assignment yet… to cheer a pair of siblings struggling with their move to a new town. 

The Cat in the Hat was first published in 1957. Universal made a 2003 live-action version of the children’s book starring Mike Myers in the lead role; that movie grossing over $133M worldwide.
