Who’s up for an animated musical? Well, come November, fans can tune into Netflix to check out Leo, a fun romp directed by Robert Marianetti, Robert Smigel and David Wachtenheim.
Actor and comedian Adam Sandler (Hotel Transylvania, The Wedding Singer) delivers signature laughs in this coming-of-age animated musical comedy about the last year of elementary school – as seen through the eyes of a class pet.
Jaded 74-year-old lizard Leo (Sandler) has been stuck in the same Florida classroom for decades with his terrarium-mate turtle (Bill Burr). When he learns he only has one year left to live, he plans to escape to experience life on the outside but instead gets caught up in the problems of his anxious students — including an impossibly mean substitute teacher. It ends up being the strangest but most rewarding bucket list ever…
Joining Sandler in this adventure are Bill Burr, Cecily Strong, Jason Alexander, Sadie Sandler, Sunny Sandler, Rob Schneider, Jo Koy, Jackie Sandler, Heidi Gardner, Robert Smigel, Nick Swardson, Stephanie Hsu and Nicholas Turturro.
Produced by Adam Sandler and Mireille Soria and written by Robert Smigel, Adam Sandler, Paul Sado, Leo comes to Netflix on 21 November. The film also features an original score by Geoff Zanelli. Check out the trailer here.
