Once upon a time, it was the Grinch who stole Christmas, but this year, it will be Grumpy Cat–dour-faced pussy and cutie-pie internet star. The live-action Lifetime movie will be called Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever and the female feline (who’s real name is “Tardar Sauce”) will be voiced by monotone comedienne, Aubrey Plaza.
According to Hollywood Reporter, the script was co-penned by someone behind SpongeBob SquarePants and was described by Lifetime’s VP of Original Movies, Arturo Interian as a “little Home Alone and a little Die Hard.”
But, in an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Grumpy Cat’s meow-nager, Ben Lashes, says that the pouty pussy will soon become a Christmas classic: “When I go home for Christmas, there are movies that we always watch. It becomes a tradition. I like that aspect of Christmas movies.”
