There’s kind of a dream team behind Mr. Peabody and Sherman: Dreamworks Animation, which gave us the deeply awesome How to Train Your Dragon; director Rob Minkoff, (The Lion King); and an all-star voice acting lineup including Ty Burrell, Stephen Colbert, and Allison Janney. A new official trailer was just released for the movie, which is set for a March 7th release.
The trailer pulls a little bit of a fake-out, playing to the basest of zeitgeisty trends like Zumba and fist-bumping. But once we get past that, Mr. Peabody and Sherman promises to be straight-up funny. With the source material at hand – Mr. Peabody and Sherman started out, of course, on Jay Ward’s Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show – you kind of can’t go wrong. Looks like Sherman commandeers Mr. Peabody’s WABAC Machine to impress a girl, and like all time travels with the best of intentions, nearly destroys the space-time continuum. Hilarity ensues. Points for best non-Coachella use of a Bastille song.
