Originally set to release in 2020 but delayed by COVID-19 setbacks, the new animated Marmaduke film will hit Netflix in key territories on May 6.
Produced by Andrews McMeel Entertainment and Legacy Classics, the fully animated feature sees Marmaduke, voiced by Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson, training for the Westminster dog show. In the trailer, released today, we get a brief taste of the sleepy dog’s extensive training regimen and a quick look at how wrong things go for Marmaduke once he gets to the competition.
We’re also introduced to Marmaduke’s rival Zeus, voiced by J.K. Simmons, a classic show dog with no scruples about doing whatever it takes to win. Other voice actors appearing in the film include David Koechner (The Office, Anchorman), Jason Anthony, and Shelby Young.
