THE GARFIELD MOVIE Goes Full Action-Film in Its Latest Trailer

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Garfield? Is it lasagna? Naps? Laziness? Mondays? Booting a sweet dumb dog off a table? Well The Garfield Movie hopes you’ll soon think of the iconic cartoon cat in an all-new way—as an action star. The film’s latest trailer finds the iconic orange tabby in a fight for his life, as he must help his estranged dad escape the clutches of a highly-motivated evil feline.

Oh yeah, and Snoop Dogg shows up to voice a cat.

The latest look at The Garfield Movie, which stars Passengers’ Chris Pratt as the cat with a big appetite for both food and sleeping, is anything but a lazy romp. It’s maybe the most activity Garfield has ever had in his life. Here’s The Garfield Movie‘s official synopsis from Sony Pictures to accompany the trailer:

Garfield, the world-famous, Monday-hating, lasagna-loving indoor cat, is about to have a wild outdoor adventure! After an unexpected reunion with his long-lost father – scruffy street cat Vic – Garfield and his canine friend Odie are forced from their perfectly pampered life into joining Vic in a hilarious, high-stakes heist.

The movie comes from director Mark Dindal (The Emperor’s New Groove, Chicken Little), with a script from Paul A. Kaplan & Mark Torgove and David Reynolds. It also stars Samuel L. Jackson as Garfield’s dad Vic. The rest of the cast it just as impressive. It also features Ted Lasso alums Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein, as well as Ving Rhames, Nicholas Hoult, Cecily Strong, Harvey Guillén, Bowen Yang, and Snoop “The Cat” Dogg.

In case that’s not enough to convince you, you can also check out Chris Pratt going full method cat in preparation for The Garfield Movie. It’s a lot to take in.

The Garfield Movie comes to theaters this spring on May 24, 2024. That day, is fittingly, not a Monday. We know a certain orange tabby doesn’t work on Mondays. Although maybe after this action-packed movie we’ll need to stop thinking about Garfield the way we always have. Unless we’re talking about lasagna. Clearly that still applies.
