Mr. Peabody & Sherman, the upcoming movie about the world’s most amazing and intelligent dog whose sidekick is an impish yet good-hearted boy, is currently set for a March 7, 2014 release. The story line focuses, comically, on a genius dog who adopts a boy. Yes, that’s right. The dog is the parent. Who would have thought? Fans are already getting excited for the release.
Dreamworks Animation and 20th Century Fox are teaming up together to adapt the 1960’s The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show‘s skit to the big screen, which has been directed by Rob Minkoff. Many talented stars are lending their voices to bring these characters to life. Ty Burrell of Modern Family fame will carry the voice of Mr. Peabody while Max Charles from the The Amazing Spider-Man will voice Sherman. Allison Janney from the hit, Mom, will portray Mrs. Grunion.
The official synopsis for the movie is the following:
Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine—the Wabac—to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes the Wabac out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidently rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time-traveling trio will make their mark on history.

History buffs and satirists should enjoy the witty dialogue and historical references while children old and young should enjoy the unique idea of a boy being raised by an intellectually-gifted dog.
