Sony Pictures Animation just dropped a trailer for their upcoming film, ‘The Garfield Movie,’ and it’s catching everyone’s attention. Chris Pratt, known for his role in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ brings life to the iconic, lasagna-loving cat. The trailer hints at a unique story, showing how Garfield and his owner Jon Arbuckle meet, wrapped in a theme reminiscent of ‘The Peanuts Movie.’
What’s really exciting is the twist in the story. The movie promises a high-stakes heist, which is a departure from the usual Garfield antics. According to the studio’s synopsis, Garfield, after reuniting with his long-lost father Vic (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson), gets dragged into a thrilling adventure. He’s not alone, though; his pal Odie joins in on the action too.
The casting for this movie is impressive. Along with Pratt and Jackson, the film features talents like Hannah Waddingham, Nicholas Hoult, Ving Rhames, Cecily Strong, Bowen Yang, and Brett Goldstein. It’s like a gathering of stars from various hit shows, including ‘Ted Lasso’ and ‘Saturday Night Live.’
Directing this animated adventure is Mark Dindal, who previously worked on Disney’s ‘The Emperor’s New Groove’ and ‘Chicken Little.’ The screenplay comes from the combined efforts of Paul A. Kaplan, David Reynolds, and Mark Torgrove.
For those who grew up with Garfield, this film is a nostalgic treat. The comic strip by Jim Davis, first appearing in 1978, has been a part of many childhoods. Although there were Garfield movies in 2004 and 2006, starring Bill Murray, this new take seems fresh and exciting.
‘The Garfield Movie‘ stands out not just for its star-studded cast but also for its intriguing plot. It’s not just about a lazy cat who loves food; it’s about adventures and unexpected twists. As a fan of the comic strip, I’m personally excited to see how this movie brings a new dimension to the beloved character of Garfield. The trailer has certainly set high expectations, and I can’t wait to see how it all pans out on the big screen.
