For a whole generation of people who are probably now too old for this movie, Mr. Peabody was a welcome staple as part of “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.” And as with all things from your childhood, Hollywood has come knocking and made a big movie out of your memories, and this spring, “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” are coming to a theater near you.
And so, to remind you and continue to get the word out, a brand new trailer and clip for the movie have landed online. Ty Burrell and Max Charles voice the lead characters, in an animated adventure that will find them using the WABAC to fix a hole left in the space time continuum, after Sherman takes his gal pal Penny for a trip through the machine. And basically it’s an opportunity for the animators to have fun riffing on ancient Egypt, the Trojan War and more while a high-fiving Abraham Lincoln makes an appearance.
In the end, it’s for the kids, and it looks like they’ll dig it while it probably won’t be too painful for parents. “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” opens on March 7th. Watch the trailer below along with a clip from the movie.
