This new live-action/CG motion picture is based on the beloved series of books written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter, starting from The Tale Of Peter Rabbit originally published in 1902. It revolves around a mischievous rabbit that goes by the name of Peter who often tries to sneak into a vegetable garden, and getting chased around by its owner, McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson).
The farmer goes the distance in trying to get rid of Peter and other animals in his garden. But his hatred for the critters is shifted when Bea (Rose Byrne) comes into the picture as she loves animals. Voicing the classic character is host/actor James Corden, who – judging from the Peter Rabbit trailer – is just crushing it as the naughty rabbit.
Peter doesn’t solely stay at McGregor’s garden but also goes to London where he and his varied animal friends create havoc. The voice cast includes Margot Robbie, Daisy Ridley and Elizabeth Debicki.
In a film featurette, Robbie said: “The stories are so timeless, it’s nice to escape to that. (The film) is so funny, but at the core it’s about being there for the people that you love.”
