Tom and Jerry are undoubtedly television’s most famous cat and mouse duo, but for all their fame on the small screen, they’ve yet to be given a a blockbuster movie on the big screen. (No, we won’t talk about the animated movie in 1993 where Tom and Jerry talked extensively, going against everything that was great about the original animated shorts). Warner Bros. Pictures hopes to change that next year with their new Tom and Jerry movie that is slated to hit theaters in 2021.
The first Tom and Jerry movie trailer has arrived, and while it showcases the classic character designs for the titular characters in a sort of 3D cel animation style, for some reason, they’re being brought into the real world with a large comedic ensemble cast to support them. It looks like exactly what you’d expect from a movie that has been stuck in development hell since first being announced in 2009.
