Tonight at Cinemacon, the annual Las Vegas gathering of theater owners, Warner Bros. unveiled the first full trailer for its upcoming Smallfoot. It’s the first new footage since a teaser was released last November.

The Karey Kirkpatrick-directed film turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a Yeti finds a mythical “smallfoot,” aka human.

Smallfoot is based on a story by Sergio Pablos, and a script by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (Cats & Dogs, Bad Santa), who are part of Warner Animation Group’s “think tank.”

The film is produced by Bonne Radford (Curious George, The Road to El Dorado, Balto), Ficarra, and Requa. Serving as executive producers are Nicholas Stoller, Phil Lord, Chris Miller, Jared Stern, Sergio Pablos, and Kirkpatrick. The creative team includes editor Peter Ettinger, composer Heitor Pereira, production designer Ronald Kurniawan, and art director Devin Crane.

Sony Pictures Imageworks is producing the animation. The studio is also producing the animation for two other films being released in 2018: Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 3 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Channing Tatum leads the voice cast of Smallfoot as the Yeti, Migo. He’s joined by James Corden as Smallfoot, as well as Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Gina Rodriguez, Danny DeVito, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry, and Jimmy Tatro.

Smallfoot will be released in the U.S. September 28, 2018.
