DreamWorks’ latest animated production Mr. Peabody & Sherman features a little ginger boy called Sherman and his adopted father Mr. Peabody, who happens to be the smartest being on the planet… as well as a talking dog.
Being a genius mutt, Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell, Modern Family) owns a time machine, the WABAC, but when disastrous (and comical) times occur, it’s up to Mr. Peabody and Sherman to put things back on track before the space-time continuum is irreparably destroyed!
In this great upcoming children’s film, it’s great to see another flaming redhead taking the lead – we’ve certainly missed this since Justin and the Knights of Valour and Princess Merida in Brave!
The movie is based on the Peabody’s Improbable History segments of the 1960s animated TV series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, and stays true to Sherman’s natural gingerness, we’re pleased to report!
Check out the trailer above, and catch the full movie when it hits the big screen in March 2014.
