Part live-action, but mostly animation, Playmobil: The Movie aims to do what The LEGO Movie did for its parent company back in 2014: Kickstart a family film franchise and reignite interest from new and old fans alike. The first official trailer for the upcoming movie is here, and it promises a fun-filled adventure stocked with only the slightest bit of peril and a barrelful of laughs for the little ones. I’ll admit to being a bit disconcerted by the intense, lidless eyes of the main characters, but if I could get over it for Alita: Battle Angel, I think I’ll be just fine for this one.
Featuring the voices of Anya Taylor-Joy, Jim Gaffigan, Gabriel Bateman, Adam Lambert, Kenan Thompson, Meghan Trainor and Daniel Radcliffe, Playmobil: The Movie arrives in U.S. theaters this November 22nd after its world premiere at Annecy this June and its world tour in European territories this August.
Watch the first official trailer for Playmobil: The Movie below:
