Good news if you love movies about the lives of super smart pets! Stephen Colbert and Allison Janney recently joined the all-star cast of actors lending their voices to the new Mr. Peabody and Sherman movie, based on the animated role-reversal classic about a super genius dog and his loyal boy, Sherman.
If you're not familiar with the '50s TV series, the canine star, Mr. Peabody is a world reknown scientist, diplomat, and Harvard grad (a self-described "wagg'ner cum laude") who takes it upon himself to adopt a underprivileged boy from the people shelter (a.k.a. the orphanage).Check out the clip below for a quick initiation to the bizarro word of Mr. Peabody.
The star-studded cast is already building a lot of excitement and anticipation to the upcoming production, in which Hollywood will attempt to recreate the magic of Jay Ward's classic cartoon. Colbert will be the voice of Mr. Peabody's arch-nemesis, Paul Peterson, while the puppy prodigy himself will be played by Modern Family star Ty Burrell. West Wing alum Allison Janney will voice the character of Mrs. Grunion. The new version is being produced by Dreamworks Animation, the studio behind mega-hits like Shrek and Kung Fu Panda. If that doesn't get you excited about the blockbuster potential of the film, consider this: Dreamworks is reportedly looking to push the release date from spring break 2014 to November 2013.
Keep Mr. Peabody and Sherman on your radar if you're a fan of 1950s retro cartoons, cute talking animals, or cutting edge Hollywood animation. And, seriously, who isn't a fan of at least one of those things?
