Dreamworks has released 6 new pictures for their upcoming animated film Mr. Peabody & Sherman. You may remember these characters from Peabody’s Improbable History segments which aired in the 60’s as part of The Bullwinkle Show. The series was about a boy and dog who time-traveled using the “Wayback Machine” to eventful moments in history.
According to the synopsis, Dreamworks seems to be keeping with the general storyline of the original series in their new film, which is sure to spark nostalgia amongst the generation that remembers it well. We’re glad to see they haven’t tried some crazy spin-off plot, which would ruin the boy and dog we all love and remember.
There’s also an amazing cast attached with the film. Ty Burrell (Modern Family) will play the genius dog Sherman, and the adorable Max Charles who played 4 year-old Peter Parker in the 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man will be voicing Mr. Peabody. Other cast members to look forward to include Stanley Tucci, Leslie Mann, Mel Brooks, and even the hilarious Stephen Colbert.
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.
