Hide your kitties because one of our favorite aliens of all time is coming back into our lives at some point in the future.
Sony Pictures Animation has acquired the rights to the character from the classic 80s sitcom and will be working on producing a live-action/CG feature, which will be similar in style to The Smurfs.
In case you forgot about this pop culture gem, ALF was about an "alien life form" named Gordon Shumway who crash landed on Earth and moved in with a suburban family for weekly HIGHlarity between 1986 and 1990.
If the producers behind the family flick can turn The Smurfs into a $563 million hit, than we have faith they can do the same, if not even better, with ALF!
We'll miss the puppet, but are looking forward to seeing the creature's updated design. Are U?

And why shouldn't she? It's not like Adam Sandler is one of the biggest names in Hollywood or anything…
To recap - back in November, we learned that Miley Cyrus had joined Sony Pictures Animation/Adam Sandler's upcoming animated flick Hotel Transylvania…and we thought it sounds like a cute project!
Looks like it wasn't cute enough for Mileybird, because according to a new report, she's dropped out of the movie.
Here's what a source had to say about it:

Last we heard from our little blue friends, a new super-adorable trailer had been released for The Smurfs!
If THAT wasn't exciting for all the Smurfanatics out there, we've now learned that the release date for the movie has been pushed up a week from Aug. 5 to July 29.
Sony Pictures Animation made the decision to change the release date in an effort to avoid direct competition with Fox's Rise of the Apes, the James Franco-starring prequel which opens on Aug. 5.
We hope Sony's move works out for The Smurfs! It looks like a totally cute movie, and as we said before, Katy Perry is ADORBS as Smurfette!
Will U check out The Smurfs when it comes out on July 29th?
