‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’ Trailer (Video) with ‘Modern Family’ Star Ty Burrell and Max Charles

October 26, 2013

Watch the first trailer for ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman.’ The new 3D computer-animated movie features iconic characters from ‘The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show,’ the genius dog and the human boy, voiced by ‘Modern Family’ star Ty Burrell and child actor Max Charles respectively.

The new comedy from from DreamWorks Animation directed by Rob Minkoff (‘The Lion King’) marks the first time these 1960s Saturday morning cartoon favorites have graced the silver screen. As in the TV show, Mr. Peabody — “the world’s most amazing dog” — is also the smartest living being of any kind in the world. But this time around, Rocky is not a pet; he has adopted the human boy Sherman as his son.

Ty Burrell, who portrays as Phil Dunphy in the ABC hit sitcom ‘Modern Family,’ makes his debut as a voice actor, in his portrayal of MR. Peabody, as does Max Charles as Sherman, who has previously been seen as the young Peter Parker in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man.’

As seen in the trailer, the movie is a departure from the original ‘Rocky & Bullwinkle’ cartoon. Bullwinkle, the moose, does not appear, nor does Rocky the squirrel. The longtime adversaries of Rocky & Bullwinkle — the Cold War era spies Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale — also do not appear.

Instead, the movie is a takeoff from the ‘Peabody’s Improbable History’ segments of the original show; Mr. Peabody and his time machine, the WABAC machine. With a time machine and Sherman’s desire to impress his friend Penny (Ariel Winter), an unplanned trip back to the past is inevitable. Along with that, the inevitable rewriting of history which must be corrected with yet another trip back to the past. But it’s all in good fun, as we see cameo appearances from the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci, ancient Greeks and Egyptians, the Founding Fathers and others.

Additionally, the movie features the voices of Mel Brooks, Stephen Colbert, Stanley Tucci, Leslie Mann, Patrick Warburton, and Allison Janney. ‘Mr. Peabody & Sherman’ opens in theaters on March 7, 2014. The first trailer is below!
