Guys, it’s official: If anything is beloved enough, it can be turned into a movie. It just happened with Emojis, and it’s happening again with Pez candies. And we’re pretty. Freaking. Stoked.

Envision Media Arts is developing an animated movie around the old-school dispensers of little pellet candies, according to Entertainment Weekly. We don’t know what it will be about yet, but we do know it will be written by Cameron Fay of the upcoming film, Brothers in Law.

There’s a lot to love about Pez. The candy itself is fine enough, but the real fun is in the dispensers with the large cartoon heads. There are Disney Pez dispensers, Muppets Pez dispensers and Looney Tunes Pez dispensers. There are Star Wars Pez dispensers, Ninja Turtle Pez dispensers and Marvel Pez dispensers. Basically, if you can dream it, it’s a Pez dispenser.

So, how do you celebrate the announcement of a Pez movie? With a list of characters we hope are included in the movie, obviously. We took a stroll through eBay and rounded up some of our favorites!

European Disney characters

Plot: Everyone must work together to save the world. Twist: It’s a foreign film with subtitles.

They’re very serious about remaining in mint condition.

Jack from Jack in the Box

His mouth never moved before, so why start now? Naturally, the same guy who does the voice for commercials will do the voice for the movie.

The Tin Man

B plot: The Tin Man’s neck is constantly rusting shut and can never actually dispense candy on command.

Because they have more to offer than just cereal. They also have Pez!
