The Jay and Silent Bob creator is known for his offbeat humour and has countless projects in the pipeline, serving as writer, producer, director and actor. Not one to limit himself, Kevin has shared his desire to bring the quirky 1971 movie back to the silver screen, following on from the 2016 remake of Disney’s Pete’s Dragon, which also combined live-action with animation.

"Bedknobs and Broomsticks can be remade today," he insisted during a podcast for Fatman on Batman. "That movie can so f**king work today. In a world where Disney's like, Pete's Dragon and s**t like that... Hey!"

The original Bedknobs and Broomsticks starred Angela Lansbury as Miss Eglantine Price, a witch-in-training. Along with three children evacuated from the London Blitz and the head of her witchcraft school, Eglantine flies away on a magical bed to a fantasy land where the group puts a halt to German troops.

"That movie f**king has it all, dude: witches battling f**king Nazis with f**king ghosts wearing armour... Kids and cartoon under the seas where they play f**king soccer," Kevin added, referring to the animated underwater scenes.

Live-action and animation were both also present in 1964’s Mary Poppins, for which a sequel titled Mary Poppins Returns is currently being made, with Emily Blunt starring as the title character.

Other popular features that combine the two methods include 1988's Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and 1997's Space Jam.
