Mortal enemies and cartoon veterans Tom and Jerry are set to make their big-screen debut in 2021.
In Tom & Jerry, the long-lasting cat and mouse dwell alongside live-action people. Think Space Jam or Who Framed Roger Rabbit, however it could seem from the primary trailer — which has cartoon pigeons and elephants alongside Tom and Jerry — that on this world, animals are all simply animated creatures. The result’s wacky cartoon hijinks and bodily gags in a real-world setting, mixing traditional animation with dwell motion.
After Tom and Jerry half methods, Jerry shacks up at a elaborate lodge proper earlier than a super-important fabulous wedding ceremony occasion. The lodge supervisor (Michael Peña) freaks out about their newfound mouse downside, and recruits a brand new worker (Chloë Grace Moretz) to do away with the mouse. She finally ends up hiring a cat, who simply so occurs to be Tom, and the rivals meet face-to-face once more, leading to what looks like a thousand face-smashing, electrocution, and long-fall-to-the-ground visible gags. It’s all a throwback to an age of cartoons largely constructed round countless violent confrontations, however this time, with a minimal plot tacked on.
Tom & Jerry is ready to premiere in theaters on March 5, 2021.
