Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Mod­ern Fam­ily” star Ty Bur­rell is the new voice of Mr. Peabody in Dream­Works Animation’s upcom­ing fea­ture film Mr. Peabody & Sher­man, replac­ing Robert Downey Jr.

Mean­while, Max Charles, who por­trays young Peter Parker in The Amaz­ing Spider-Man, will be Sher­man in the movie, based on Jay Ward’s clas­sic car­toon seg­ment Peabody’s Improb­a­ble His­tory.

Like all of DWA’s other fea­ture films, this wll be a 3D release. It’s slated to come out on March 14, 2014.

As in the 1959–63 series, Mr. Peabody is a dog who’s the world’s smartest per­son. Peabody has a “pet” boy, Sherman.

In the movie, the duo dis­cover that some­one has used their time-traveling machine with­out per­mis­sion. His­tor­i­cal events change uncon­trol­lably to dis­as­trous and com­i­cal results. The dog and his boy must return things to nor­mal before the space-time con­tin­uum is destroyed.

The bril­liantly comedic and pater­nal sen­si­bil­i­ties of Ty Bur­rell make him ideal for the role of the beloved Mr. Peabody, and we are thrilled that he will join Max Charles as the leads of Mr. Peabody and Sher­man,’” said DWA chief cre­ative offi­cer Bill Damaschke.

Rob Minkoff (The Lion King) is direct­ing from a script by Craig Wright (“Six Feet Under”). Alex Schwartz, DWA’s for­mer head of devel­op­ment, will pro­duce with Denise Cas­cino (Shrek The Third). Jason Clark (Stu­art Lit­tle) will join Bull­win­kle Stu­dios’ Tiffany Ward and Clas­sic Media’s Eric Ellen­bo­gen as exec­u­tive producers.
