Sony Pictures Animation and Animal Logic’s ‘Peter Rabbit’ Gets A Trailer

Sony Pictures Animation has released a first look at Peter Rabbit, scheduled for U.S. theatrical release on February 9, 2018.

Though the cg/live-action hybrid is being distributed by Sony’s Columbia Pictures and bears the Sony Animation label, it was actually produced by Sydney-based Animal Logic, best known for their work on the Lego feature animation franchise, as well as Happy Feet and Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.

Will Gluck (Annie, Friends with Benefits) directs the film based on the classic Beatrix Potter books. Here’s the synopsis:

Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.
