Warner Bros. has recently unveiled the first official trailer for their upcoming CG feature, Smallfoot. The title comes from the film’s play on the mystery surrounding the cryptid called Bigfoot, as a tribe of Yetis discover a human, which – if still not obvious at this point – is the eponymous “smallfoot.” You can check out the trailer below to see things more clearly:
The film boasts of a stunning voice cast that includes the likes of Channing Tatum, James Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Gina Rodriguez, Danny deVito, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry, and Jimmy Tatro.
Smallfoot is directed by Over the Hedge’s Karey Kirkpatrick, who has taken over directing duties from Ryan O’Loughlin (who was originally attached to the project, but dropped out last spring.) The story is based on Sergio Pablos’ work, with scripting duties handled by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (Cats & Dogs, Bad Santa), who are known for being part of Warner Animation Group’s “think tank.”
Smallfoot is due in the U.S. September 28, 2018.
