If you went to school in the late '80s or '90s, you'll no doubt know that nothing mattered more than the cover art on your Trapper Keeper. Maybe you were a Transformers kid. Maybe you had a totally rad sports car. Maybe you had unicorns and rainbows. Whatever the case, we can all agree that Trapper Keeper were kind of a big deal.

And now they're going to be a big deal on the big screen, too. THR reports '90s trapper keeper art icon Lisa Frank is teaming up with producer Jon Shestack to turn her imaginary world of organizational cover art into a movie. It'll be a mixture of live-action and animation and tell a story about...well, no one knows. It's not like Trapper Keepers had elaborate backstories. The inside flap didn't have ten pages of lore on why those dolphins were jumping out of the water into the neon glow of a California sunset.

But that's their problem to solve. It won't be hard too, either. The live-action, animation hybrid is already kind of telling. Tell a story about a kid who escapes their mundane school days by imagining their school supply art is coming to life and you're already halfway there.
