The Tale of Despereaux Trailer

28 06 2008

Another CG animation movie about a misfit mouse, will be out this winter. This comes by way of The Movie Blog.

Given the basic subject matter, The Tale of Despereaux will undoubtedly draw comparison to last year’s Pixar movie, Ratatouille. This isn’t necessarily bad news, as it could help get people into seats.

The animation on this looks really good. It’s a real departure from the standard that has been set by Pixar and imitated by most other CG animation companies in recent years. The cast is they’ve assembled is pretty stacked too, featuring Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame, as well as Dustin Hoffman, Matthew Broderick, Sigourney Weaver, Christopher Lloyd, and more.

The Tale of Despereaux hits theaters on December 19th.
