The upcoming Dreamworks Animation, Mr. Peabody & Sherman is based on Jay Ward's classic cartoon. Directed by Rob Minkoff (whom brought us Stuart Little films [1999 and 2002] and The Forbidden Kingdom ). The story centers on Mr. Peabody, who is the world's smartest dog, and his pet boy, Sherman.
I haven't seen any of the cartoon (or maybe I have but have forgotten). In any case, Dreamworks has just released 6 official photos from the movie and it looks like a mix of time travel and mummy adventure. Following is the official synopsis from imdb.com :
Using his most ingenious invention, the WABAC machine, Mr. Peabody and his adopted boy Sherman hurtle back in time to experience world-changing events first-hand and interact with some of the greatest characters of all time. They find themselves in a race to repair history and save the future.
Now, keep reading to enjoy the newly released photos..
I believed this family-oriented animation will appeal to kids! What do you think?
