The first official images from DreamWorks Animation’s new film Mr. Peabody & Sherman have been released online.  Based on the titular characters from the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, the film features the voices of Ty Burrell as the genius dog Mr. Peabody and Max Charles as his adopted son Sherman.  They use a time travel machine called the WABAC to go on various adventures and learn about history, and as glimpsed in these images we can see that Peabody & Sherman will find themselves in the time of Leonardo da Vinci and in ancient Egypt.  The Lion King helmer Rob Minkoff directs, and we should see a first trailer very soon.

Hit the jump to take a look at the images.  The film also features the voices of Stephen Colbert, Ariel Winter, Leslie Mann, Stanley Tucci, Allison Janney, Patrick Warburton, and Mel BrooksMr. Peabody & Sherman opens on March 7, 2014.

    Wait, the trailer hasn’t come out yet? I’m in Australia and my cinemas are screening the trailer. Weird.

    Is anybody even going to watch this? Do any kids even know who these guys are?

      Animated films come out on a regular basis that are not based on a previously existing property… and many of those are successful. I don’t see how a non-awareness of these characters by children would be an automatic indicator of its success or non-success.

      • The Flobbit

        Because adults do not see kids movies, kids do, and they take their parents along. No kid will want to see something that their parent is pressuring them to see because it was based on an old TV show they used to watch.

        … why would they need to be pressured by an adult? A kid sees a commercial on TV of characters he or she doesn’t know (same as the Croods or any other original movie). The kid thinks the movie looks good. The kid wants to go see it. That’s all there really is to it.

        Previous awareness certainly helps at the box office, but non-awareness is not a death sentence of any kind. Also, although I’m a fan, most of the people in my own age bracket (30s) have little awareness of these characters. I think the children under 10 who will be ‘pressured’ to see it is likely very minimal.

        Of course, once the advertising comes out the movie could look like absolute garbage and kids won’t want to see it.

        Still, I bet you this will flop. Flop like Turbo.

        Opened at number two, moved up to number one on its second weekend. Decent reviews.

      • The Flobbit

        Well consider me stumped.

    At least it’s not live action with a real dog with a CGI mouth. #underdog #horrible

    Puxsr style animation or what? Look at the cars. They are the same proportions as the cars in The Incredibles. Short bottoms and tall windows.
