Dreamworks Debuts Mr. Peabody And Sherman Trailer
Dreamworks just recently unveiled their latest reboot project, tapping into a segment of the 1960's Rocky and Bullwinkle show and expanding it into a feature treatment. Originally called Peabody's Improbable History, the only departure notable in this adaptation is dumbing down the originally intelligent human sidekick Sherman into a more 'relatable' character for kids, while letting Peabody (Voiced by Ty Burrell) take care of that whole intelligence aspect.
Considering how ancient the source material is, I'm left wondering how successful this will be despite it's visually appealing aesthetic. Considering Dreamworks' inconsistent track record, come March of next year we'll know whether this is more of a Shrek or a How To Train Your Dragon. Here's to hoping it's the latter.
