WATCH: Trailer lands for live-action/animated Tom & Jerry movie

November 17th, 2020 by Marc Comments


I’m not sure who wanted this, but we’re getting a live-action/animated hybrid Tom & Jerry movie.

I’m a Tom & Jerry purist, loving the duo’s earlier adventures and finding anything in the last 30 years to be bland and lacking the pure chaos and humour that made the characters iconic, so I’m far from excited for this… but that could change down the line.

Let me know your thoughts, gang…

Directed by Fantastic Four’s Tim Story, Tom & Jerry follows Kayla (Chloë Grace Moretz), a new employee at a hotel who is tasked with getting rid of Jerry before the wedding of the century. After hiring alley cat Tom to dispose of the clever rodent, chaos ensues which causes Tom, Jerry, and Kayla to team up against her tyrannical manager Terrance (Michael Peña).

Written by Kevin Costello, Tom & Jerry totes a cast of seasoned comedic talent, including Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2) Colin Jost, and Ken Jeong.

No official release date as of yet, folks…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
