DreamWorks Animation has released the first official trailer for director Rob Minkoff's Mr. Peabody & Sherman (2014), featuring the voices of Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Stephen Colbert, Mel Brooks, Stanley Tucci, Lake Bell, Ariel Winter, Leslie Mann, and Allison Janney. The film is set to open in theaters across the United States on March 7th, 2014.
Synopsis: Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine - The Wabac - to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes The Wabac out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidently rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time traveling trio will make their mark on history.
Agree with everyone else that the voices are just wrong. Even with the new Scooby Doo cartoons the voices are pretty close to the original cartoon. I am sure they didn't even try to find someone. Anyway, most of the kids who will see this movie will have no idea it was originally a cartoon from the 50s and 60s.
Yep, agree the voices are wrong, but this seems like a nice flick to see with my 5 yr old boy. We just happened to watch the Simpsons Halloween special with the Peabobdy reference last night. Haven't seen the original cartoon since I was a kid, unlike Looney Toons, my memory tells me the original Peabody is not something to be enjoyed by adults except for nostalgia, am I wrong?
I'm not sure if Mr. Peabody sounds right, but the visuals are very much in spirit to the shorts universe and the film looks approiately zany and gag filled xD the "disarming" pun made me laugh hard lol!
I guess this kind of thing is to be expected. It looks like every other CG cartoon. The charm of the original cartoon had much to do with, not only the great voice work, but the limited animation. I'll pass.
