The Live Action Barney Movie

Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

By Edgar Guest

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through; Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along? Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng? Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way, Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say, You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

We all remember the big purple dinosaur that graced us with his presence throughout the ‘90s until 2009, dancing around, singing and teaching us about friendship. Whether you loved, hated or just didn’t care for him, there’s no doubt about it that Barney the big purple dinosaur was completely iconic. 


Now, a decade later, he’s coming back, but in a whole new way that we would never have expected, and it’s actually kind of strange: A live-action Barney movie. 


If you’re uncomfortable by this, that’s perfectly fine, and if you’re feeling pumped up about the idea, we also won’t judge you. While the movie will surely evoke some nostalgia, some people did always find him to be kind of creepy.  


Not too much information has been released about the live-action re-make, other than what viewers may be able to expect, and that it will be produced by Daniel Kaluuya.  


According to Kaluyya, who also produced Black Panther, Barney is a childhood figure that disappeared, and that was left very misunderstood. The goal of the film is to see Barney as a modern-day hero and explore his message of ‘’I love you, you love me’’ even further.
