The conventional cartoon of a naughty duo of cat and mouse is lower back in a feature movie as makers launch the trailer. Partially animated, this feature has cat and mouse in the fashion of animation and stay-action — each in identical parts.
It is written by Kevin Costello, based on characters created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Serving as executive producers are Tim Story, Adam Goodman, Steven Harding, Sam Register, Jesse Ehrman, and Allison Abbate. The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Alan Stewart, production designer James Hambidge, editor Peter S. Elliot, and costume designer Alison McCosh. The music is composed by Christopher Lennertz. A Warner Bros. Pictures and Warner Animation Group presentation, a Tim Story Film, “Tom & Jerry” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. The film is rated PG for cartoon violence, rude humor, and brief language. The movie stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost, and Ken Jeong.
The Tim Story directorial is scheduled for a theatrical launch in 2021.
