James Corden Voices Peter Rabbit in First 'Peter Rabbit' Movie Trailer
"This is only the beginning." Sony has finally debuted the first official trailer for Will Gluck's Peter Rabbit movie, a hybrid CGI family comedy about the lovable rabbit rascal who messes with Mr. McGregor. Peter Rabbit is voiced by James Corden, and the triplets Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail, are voiced by Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley. The human cast includes Domhnall Gleeson as Mr. McGregor, plus Rose Byrne. This teaser trailer doesn't show much besides a bunch of animals partying inside of Mr. McGregor's house, which is kind of odd, but hopefully there's a good story to this rather than wacky humor left and right. Also, is it just me, or does Corden's voice not really fit Peter Rabbit? Have fun.
Here's the first official trailer (+ teaser poster) for Will Gluck's Peter Rabbit, direct from YouTube:
Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter's feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm. Peter Rabbit is directed by American filmmaker Will Gluck, of the films Fired Up!, Easy A, Friends with Benefits, and Annie previously. The screenplay is also written by Will Gluck, and Rob Lieber; based on the beloved books by Beatrix Potter. Sony will release Will Gluck's Peter Rabbit in theaters starting on February 9th, 2018 early next year. Who's up for this?

This does not look good. What have they done to this classic story? And I agree, James' voice doesn't seem to fit the character at all.

I don't care about the classic story, This is fun. Of course, it will end up being some pointless classic story without anarchy. But I'll try to enjoy exactly those crazy moments ...

I hate everything about this. It's a bastardization of a classic. At least Nick Jr.'s tv series had some resemblance to the original stories. This looks like a steaming pile geared for "modern-day fidget spinner kids". I hope it crashes and burns, but the dull masses will probably flock to this in droves. I'm gonna do my best by PREVENTING my kid from seeing this trash.

this would be okay if it wasn't Peter rabbit...Maurice rabbit, maybe..definitely not Bugs rabbit... Ms. Potter would not approve...

James Cordon somehow manages to make money. That amazes me.
