Teaser Trailer for YOGI BEAR Starring the Voices of Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake

The teaser trailer for the live-action adaptation of Yogi Bear has gone online.  When we reported on the project last November, I was negative about it.  This teaser trailer makes me feel completely justified in that negativity.  There’s crummy animation, slapstick jokes, and nothing approaching the charm of the original cartoon.  Just because you quote the show, doesn’t mean you’re honoring it.  Of course, as I said then, I’m sure the soundbites will be about how everyone involved with the movie loved the show and want to bring it to a new generation.

Directed by Eric Brevig (Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D) and stars Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, and T.J. Miller as well as the voices of Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake as Yogi and Boo Boo, respectively. Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer as well as the the poster that we put up yesterday.  Yogi Bear opens in 3D on December 17th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Yogi Bear:

Jellystone Park has been losing business, so greedy Mayor Brown decides to shut it down and sell the land. That means families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors — and, even worse, Yogi and Boo Boo will be tossed out of the only home they’ve ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove that he really is “smarter than the average bear” as he and Boo Boo join forces with their old nemesis Ranger Smith to find a way to save Jellystone Park from closing forever.

    This looks pretty bad. OK… really bad. The most interesting thing about this is how JT got his voice to sound pretty close to BooBoo

    it does look bad but I will watch it cause I grew up watching it as a kid.

    That's exactly the reason why I'm not watching this.

    Now the time is right for a Muttley movie. Captain Caveman maybe? I'm thinking a Jason Bourne/Captain Caveman hybrid type of thing. I mean that club was pretty badass.

    But seriously this is just shameful. Aykroyd, please for the love of all things great and holy. Stick to the Vodka and dust off Elwood Blues when you open a new HOB, but please don't do any new movies. Ever.

    Kind of blows

    This trend of live action movies with poorly animated CG characters based on classic cartoons is among the worst trends in Hollywood today. It started with the awful Scooby-Doo movie, then we had to endure Garfield and Alvin and the Chipmunks, now the Smurfs and this atrocity are on the horizon. Is Hollywood's goal to rape everything we cherished from our childhoods?

    These movies aren’t for us as adults, but for us to watch our children/grandchildren belly laugh at the pure silliness of it all. My grandchildren are 2, 3 1/2 and 5 and I can’t wait to take them. They’ll sit wide-eyed until the “slap-stick” starts and then I’ll laugh just hearing them laugh.
