I got an amazing chance to visit with Dreamworks Pictures in Los Angeles and learn about the upcoming animated comedy, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, but I couldn’t go! Thank goodness for Kate, she covered this event on my behalf so I could still share all of the fun with you. She saw a sneak peak of the movie, read all about it and watch the trailer!
Hi! My name is Kate, and I am thrilled to report back to mommyGAGA’s audience about Dreamworks Animation’s upcoming film! Who remembers Mr. Peabody & Sherman? I love this classic cartoon short and I was really excited to see that it is coming to the big screen! Mr. Peabody & Sherman hits theaters on March 7, 2014 and I am pretty sure my husband and I are going to enjoy it as much as the kids.
For those who are unfamiliar with the original, Mr. Peabody, a genius and quite accomplished dog (yes a dog), and his adopted son Sherman use their time machine —the WABAC—to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes The WABAC out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidentally rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Mr. Peabody, Sherman, and Penny travel to ancient Egypt, Rome, and Italy meeting fun historical characters all along the way! Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue before the kids forever alter history! Together the the group leave their mark on history, and all kinds of silliness ensues.
Mr. Sherman & Peabody features a very talented cast – Ty Burrell as Mr. Peabody, Max Charles as Sherman, Ariel Winter as Penny, as well as Stephen Colbert, Leslie Mann, Patrick Warburton, Stanley Tucci, Allison Janney, Lake Bell, Zach Callison, and Dennis Haybert!
At the Parent blogger sneak peek we were lucky enough to hear about the movie first hand from Director Rob Minkoff, Executive Producer Tiffany Ward (daughter of Mr. Peabody & Sherman creator Jay Ward), and Ty Burrell!
While the whole crew is still working on Mr. Peabody & Sherman, I can tell already this movie is going to be something special! Tiffany Ward said her father would be thrilled to see the advances in animation and that the essence of his characters remain true to the original! Listening to the director speak of all that has gone into the development of this movie shows there is so much heart behind it and I truly cannot wait to see more!

Thank you Deanna for letting me fill in for you! It was such a treat!
