"Do you realize how different things have been since I met him?" Sony Pictures has debuted a full official trailer for Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, a big musical set in New York City involving a CGI crocodile. Based on the beloved book series by Bernard Waber, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile is a live-action/CGI-hybrid musical comedy film introducing the world to this character. When the Primm family moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new life. All of that changes when he discovers Lyle - a singing crocodile who loves baths, caviar and great music-living in the attic of his new home. The two become fast friends, but when Lyle’s existence is threatened by evil neighbor Mr. Grumps, his family must work together to save him and show the world there's nothing wrong with a singing crocodile. Shawn Mendes stars as the voice of Lyle, singing songs written by The Greatest Showman team. The cast features Javier Bardem, Constance Wu, Winslow Fegley, Scoot McNairy, Brett Gelman, and Rudie Bolton. The teaser trailer is better, this one re-uses most of that same footage and the CGI still looks a bit rough. I just hope it turns out good.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Will Speck & Josh Gordon's Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile on YouTube:
