“White Bird” is set in the same universe as “Wonder” and is the story of an 11-year-old bully seen in the first film who gets a visit from his grandmother from Paris and learns about her fairy-tale childhood before she’s forced to escape from the Nazis in occupied France.
Mark Bomback wrote the screenplay based on Palacio’s graphic novel. The producers behind “Wonder,” Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, are also producing “White Bird,” as is Palacio.
Renée Wolfe will be coming on board as an executive producer. Alex Young will also serve as an executive producer.
“White Bird” was published by Alfred A. Knopf and hit bookstores last October. Palacio’s books have sold more than 15 million copies
