Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Stephen Col­bert (“The Col­bert Report”), Emmy win­ner Alli­son Jan­ney (The Help, The West Wing), Ellie Kem­per (Brides­maids, The Office), Ariel Win­ter (Mod­ern Fam­ily) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Cal­i­for­ni­ca­tion) have joined Dream­Works Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sher­man, which is now sched­uled to be released on Novem­ber 8, 2013, the stu­dio announced Tuesday.

They join pre­vi­ously announced cast mem­bers Ty Bur­rell (Mod­ern Fam­ily) and Max Charles (The Amaz­ing Spider-Man, The Three Stooges).

The film had pre­vi­ously been slated for March 14, 2014, a release date now planned for the studio’s Me and My Shadow.

These incred­i­ble cast­ing addi­tions have ele­vated Mr. Peabody & Sher­man to a new level of excite­ment, and we are truly for­tu­nate to work with so many tal­ented actors,” said Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion chief cre­ative offi­cer Bill Dam­aschke. “I’m cer­tain that their col­lec­tive pas­sion and enthu­si­asm for the film will bring the clas­sic char­ac­ters of Mr. Peabody & Sher­man to new life and thrill audi­ences of all ages when we open in Novem­ber of next year.”

Mr. Peabody & Sher­man is directed by Rob Minkoff (The Lion King, Stu­art Lit­tle) and pro­duced by Alex Schwartz (Jour­ney to the Cen­ter of the Earth, Bridge to Ter­abithia) and Denise Cas­cino (Mega­mind, Shrek The Third). It is being writ­ten by Craig Wright (United States of Tara, Six Feet Under), with revi­sions by Michael McCullers (Baby Mama, Austin Pow­ers in Gold­mem­ber). Bull­win­kle Stu­dios’ Tiffany Ward and Clas­sic Media’s Eric Ellen­bo­gen are serv­ing as exec­u­tive pro­duc­ers on the film, along with Jason Clark (Mon­ster House, Stu­art Lit­tle).

Based on Jay Ward’s clas­sic car­toon, Mr. Peabody is the world’s smartest per­son who hap­pens to be a dog. When his “pet” boy Sher­man uses their time-traveling WABAC machine with­out per­mis­sion, events in his­tory spi­ral out of con­trol to dis­as­trous and com­i­cal results. It’s up to this most unex­pected of father-son teams to some­how put things back on track before the space-time con­tin­uum is irrepara­bly destroyed.
