DreamWorks Animation has released the first trailer for director Rob Minkoff‘s (The Lion King) 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. Sadly, this trailer did absolutely nothing for me other than one kind of funny joke at the end. It’s different footage than the Spanish-language version we posted yesterday, but even in English this feels incredibly forgettable.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also features the voices of Stephen Colbert, Ariel Winter, Leslie Mann, Stanley Tucci, Allison Janney, Patrick Warburton, and Mel Brooks. Mr. Peabody & Sherman opens on March 7, 2014.

Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent.
