On February 16, 2024, our favorite Monday-hating, lasagna-loving orange cat will be back again, but with a new voice… and a dad!

Here’s what we know about the film so far:

  • Frank Welker is out as the titular character with Garfield now being voiced by friend-to-franchises, Chris Pratt. Samuel L. Jackson will be joining the cast as a brand new character to the Garfield universe – Garfield’s father, Vic.
  • Garfield is directed by Mark Dindal (Cats Don’t Dance, Emperor’s New Groove), who re-teams with writer David Reynolds (Finding Nemo). The two previously worked together on Emperor’s New Groove.
  • DNEG Animation is handling the animation, and the film is financed by feature film rights-owner Alcon Entertainment with Sony Pictures to distribute globally (excluding China). Producers are John Cohen, Tom Jacomb, Broderick Johnson, Andrew A. Kosove, Namit Malhotra, and Steven P. Wegner.
