Jay Ward must be smiling in heaven as the first trailer for Mr. Peabody and Sherman has landed. Two of his most beloved characters are hitting the big screen on March 7, 2014, and we’ve got our first look in this wildly entertaining first trailer.
The key to Mr. Peabody and Sherman making the leap to the silver screen is casting, and after Movie Fanatic was shown almost 30 minutes of footage from the film earlier this week and met with filmmakers and the film’s lead actor (more on that later today), we have to say that casting Modern Family star Ty Burrell as Mr. Peabody and Max Charles as Sherman is a stroke of genius.
The story follows Mr. Peabody who, yes, is a dog… but is one of the most intelligent beings on the planet. Peabody has adopted Sherman and the two are set for the little guy to start school. When things don’t go so well with a certain female classmate, Peabody gets the girl and her parents to come over for dinner.
As fans of the show know, Peabody has a time machine called the WABAC. Our adventure begins when Sherman and the little girl somehow land in ancient Egypt. That’s all you’ll hear from us about this… for now!
Stay tuned for more on this film, and until then, check out these Mr. Peabody and Sherman stills!
