When Sony Animation released their first trailer for the child classic Peter Rabbit, I was not happy at all with it. It was basically showing Peter and his friends having a raging kegger of a party in Mr. McGregor’s home, which perfectly personifies my growing distate for the humor utilized in a good chunk of kids’ films today.
However, Sony Animation has released their first international trailer for their upcoming 3D animated film Peter Rabbit and it fits the initial storyline and tone better than the first trailer we saw. There’s still a bit of that crass humor that I cringe at, but this is a far better trailer.
The official synopsis for the film is below:
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).
The film will hop into theaters on February 9, 2018. Please make sure to watch the trailer below
