An AnimatedAdaptation has been in DevelopmentHell for several years. In the 90's, Nickelodeon Movies, having just released the hit film ''Film/TheRugratsMovie'', had an alarmingly misguided vision of what they wanted it to be, and Jeff was the one who bailed out of the deal. The rights are currently held by Warner Bros., and [[http://www.printmag.com/comics-and-animation/jeff-smith-bone-film/ the reports on the production team]] were that Creator/AnimalLogic, the studio behind ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'' and ''Film/TheMatrix'', would animate, P.J. Hogan (''Film/MyBestFriendsWedding'', ''Film/ConfessionsOfAShopaholic'', the 2003 live-action ''Film/PeterPan'') would direct, and it would be adapted for the screen by Patrick Sean Smith (Creator/ABCFamily[='=]s ''Greek''). In [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/kung-fu-panda-director-mark-osborne-helm-adaptation-cult-comic-bone-947977 2016]], Mark Osborne (''WesternAnimation/KingFuPanda'', ''WesternAnimation/TheLittlePrince2015'') became the new director, while he and Adam Kline replaced Patrick Sean Smith as the screenwriters.

There are also two prequels, ''Rose'' which tells the story of a young Grandma Ben, and ''Stupid Stupid Rat-Tails'', a {{tall tale}} of how Big Johnson Bone, the founder of Boneville, once visited the valley, fought off the rat creatures and caused them to begin their tradition of cutting off their tails. The Scholastic run packaged ''Stupid Stupid Rat-Tails'' with new Big Johnson Bone stories as ''Tall Tales''. Tom Sniegoski, who wrote the original ''Rat-Tails'' and the new ''Tall Tales'' stories, also wrote a novel trilogy called ''Quest For The Spark'' that features a RagtagBunchOfMisfits coming together to fight a new threat. Additionally, as a 25th Anniversary MilestoneCelebration, Jeff Smith is putting out a short epilogue book simply titled ''Bone: Coda''.
