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 BurĀ­rell 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.
