After warming us up with a movie poster, Warner Bros has unveiled the first trailer for their upcoming CGI/live action adaptation of Yogi Bear. The famous forest creature and his sidekick Boo Boo, will be hitting the big screen accompanied by the voice talents of Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake (this guy’s in everything). Check out the trailer…
The trailer is introduced by an enthused Aykroyd (someone’s happy to be working again) who takes us into the new world of Yogi Bear. The film is based on the popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon series of the same name that originally debuted in 1958.
Yogi Bear is scheduled to hit theaters on December 17th but I’ll be sitting in IMAX watching Tron Legacy that day. Sorry, 3D Yogi. Maybe this will be the Alvin and the Chipmunks of last year? In December, it opened right after Avatar and still made a decent amount of money. Maybe Warner Bros is hoping that will happen here?
On a side note, Timberlake’s Boo Boo voice isn’t that bad! Maybe he should stick to voice acting?
What do you think of the first trailer for Yogi Bear? Are you interested in seeing the film?
