After staring at Cut the Rope on mobile phones for dozens of hours, fans of the game and its iconic green monster, Om Nom, will soon be able to enjoy the experience on a much bigger screen.

ZeptoLab and Blockade Entertainment have announced an animated feature film adaptation of the Cut the Rope game for 2016. Tentatively titled Om Nom, the movie will be an origin story of sorts for the titular monster. (Who knew the Cut the Rope mythology went so deep?)

The film will focus on a 13-year-old boy named Evan who discovers Om Nom in a package. But once he unleashes Om Nom on the world, the monster begins to run amok in the boy’s hometown. Evan and his younger sister Jordan follow him while running away from a number of pursuers, some human and others not. And it’s a safe bet they’ll have to cut a lot of ropes to stay safe.

ZeptoLab, the developers of the Cut the Rope series, will work in conjunction with Blockade Entertainment, who is also producing animated features based on other video game franchises, including Rachet & Clank and Sly Cooper.
