Kickstarter Pulls ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ Sequel

A Kickstarter project pitched as a sequel to Where the Wild Things Are by the late Maurice Sendak has been pulled from the crowdfunding site. HarperCollins filed a DMCA notice with Kickstarter and this new message now stands on the site:

BACK TO THE WILD – Inspired by Where The Wild Things Are is the subject of an intellectual property dispute and is currently unavailable. No need to check the servers — the rest of Kickstarter is doing just fine. If you are interested in this project, please check back later. Thanks for your patience.

Sendak vowed never to write a sequel to his beloved book, but Geoffrey O. Todd and Rich Berner attempted to raise £25,000 for an illustrated poem inspired by the classic book. You can read more about the now closed project in our original post.
