Before Warner Bros. and Warner Animation Group’s new animated adventure-comedy, Smallfoot, opens in theaters this weekend, I sat down with Channing Tatum and James Corden to talk about the film. Directed by Karey Kirkpatrick (Annie Award-winning director of Over the Hedge and Annie-nominee for the screenplays for Chicken Run and James and the Giant Peach), Smallfoot stars Tatum as a yeti that sends his hidden village in the mountains into an uproar when he announces that the legend of the smallfoot (aka humans) is true. The film also features the voices of Danny DeVito, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Gina Rodriguez, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry and Jimmy Tatro. If you’re a fan of animated movies, or just a parent looking to take your kid to the movies, I absolutely recommend Smallfoot. I had a really good time watching it and all the kids in my theater loved it. Watch the trailer here.
During my time with Channing Tatum and James Corden, we played “Get to Know Your Smallfoot Cast Member” which includes questions like what TV show they’d like to guest spot on, what is the background photo on their phone, what TV show have they watched all the way through more than once, if they own and movie or TV show props, and a lot more.
Check out what they had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about followed by the official synopsis.
Channing Tatum and James Corden:
- What TV show would you love to guest spot on?
- Do they have a favorite sci-fi or fantasy film?
- What film scared them as a kid?
- Do they collect anything?
Do they own any movie or TV show props?
- Have they watched a TV show all the way through more than once?
- What is their background photo on their phone?
Here’s the official synopsis for Smallfoot:
An animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, “Smallfoot” turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human.
News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple Yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.
“Smallfoot” stars Channing Tatum (“The LEGO Batman Movie,” the “Jump Street” films) as the yeti, Migo, and James Corden (“Trolls,” “The Emoji Movie”) as the Smallfoot, Percy. Also starring are Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”), Common (“Selma”), LeBron James (upcoming “Space Jam 2”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Danny DeVito (“The Lorax,” Oscar nominee for “Erin Brockovich”), Yara Shahidi (TV’s “Black-ish”), Ely Henry (TV’s “Justice League Action”), and Jimmy Tatro (“22 Jump Street”).
