Warner Bros. has released the new Tom & Jerry trailer, which is a new live-action animated take on the classic cartoon. Just like classics like Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Space Jam, this new flick also has an all-star cast, which is led by Chloe Grace Moretz and Michael Pena.
The new treatment will no doubt help revitalise the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, which began in the 1940s. Over the years, it has stood the test of time, becoming a staple animation that has entertained generations of fans. In the new film, the age-old rivalry between the cat and mouse is renewed for a new audience.
The story unfolds with Jerry moving into New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” forcing the event’s desperate planner to hire Tom to get rid of him. The ensuing cat and mouse battle threatens to destroy her career, the wedding, and possibly the hotel itself.
But soon, an even bigger problem arises: a diabolically ambitious staffer conspiring against all three of them. An eye-popping blend of classic animation and live-action, Tom and Jerry’s new adventure stakes new ground for the iconic characters and forces them to do the unthinkable… work together to save the day.
Directed by Tim Story, Tom & Jerry is set for release in 2021.
