The Look of Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Peabody & ShermanUSA Today has given us our first look at the design for the forth­com­ing Dream­Works fea­ture Mr. Peabody & Sher­man. Based on char­ac­ters from the early six­ties clas­sic Jay Ward series Rocky and His Friends and its seg­ment Peabody’s Improb­a­ble His­tory, the movie fol­lows the lives of a bespec­ta­cled dog and his pet boy Sher­man. The movie is cur­rently sched­uled to hit the­aters on March 07, 2014.

Mr. Peabody is the world’s smartest per­son, who hap­pens to be a dog. He and his “pet” boy Sher­man dis­cover that some­one has stolen their time-traveling WABAC machine and is chang­ing moments in his­tory to dis­as­trous and com­i­cal results. It’s up to this most unex­pected of father-son teams to some­how put a stop to this vil­lain before his actions destroy the space-time continuum.

The new CGI Mr. Peabody & Sher­man is directed by Rob Minkoff, also known for direct­ing The Lion King for Dis­ney in 1994. Tiffany Ward, one of the exec­u­tive pro­duc­ers, is the daugh­ter of Jay Ward, who pro­duced the TV series on which this film is based. Ty Bur­rell replaced Robert Downey Jr. as the voice of Mr. Peabody in March 2012.

When the film releases to the­aters, it will be accom­pa­nied by a Rocky and Bull­win­kle short film, also from Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion. The short is directed by Gary Trous­dale, who is known for co-directing Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The film was orig­i­nally to be released in Novem­ber of this year, but was pushed back to March 07, 2014.

  1. I’m torn. I love Mr Peabody and Sher­man, but those images… it just ain’t them. Part of the charm of the old Jay Ward car­toons was the sim­plic­ity and bare nature of the ani­ma­tion. Still, I’m smil­ing think­ing about the pos­si­bil­i­ties of this movie. Torn.

    1. I think that is the nature of CG ani­ma­tion. You CAN make images like this. Maybe soon ani­ma­tion design­ers will decide if the NEED to make designs like this.…

      I have started to see some more sim­plis­tic ani­ma­tion design for CG… not this full-out 3D sort of ren­der. Maybe we will see more in the future.

  2. I’ve seen the trailer for the new“Mr.Peabody“CGI movie..and it Stinks! This is not the bril­liantly witty tv car­toons that I grew up..it’s a damn embar­rass­ment. When are th stu­pid and uncre­ative Hol­ly­wood execs going to stop doing bad movie ver­sions of clas­sic tv programs..and cre­ative some­thing new,original and good..or?

    At least rere­lease the original“Mr.Peabody’s Improb­a­ble History“tv car­toons to tv? Lord know those car­toons are still on dvd.
