The Grinch is one of the most beloved fictional characters associated with the holiday season. He’s the subject of one of the greatest children’s books ever written, a fantastic animated special and its accompanying title song, and a terrible Jim Carrey movie. And now it’s going to be a CGI animated movie – in a year’s time, that is, when The Grinch is set to hit theaters according to a recent tweet:

The above teaser and tagline “He gets meaner” indicates what many of us would have been able to guess all along: The Grinch is about the titular Grinch as a child, before he became the holiday-hating dog owner we all know and love. Could the citizens of Whoville actually be responsible for G’s crabby nature and isolated ways? We’ll have to wait and see!
