Gnomeo & Juliet in theaters February 11

As we quickly approach Valentine’s Day’s holiday and season of love, its important to reflect upon the most famous and romantic relationship of them all; Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s tribute to the heart. Now, it’s a little known fact that Mr. Shakespeare, or “Willy” as he liked to be known, was a fan of stories and re-tellings. He also enjoyed spoofs, cartoons, garden gnomes, Elton John music, and CG animated 3D films. …at least, that’s what we’ve heard. And if, in fact, all of that were somehow amazingly true, we imagine Willy would have loved to see Gnomeo & Juliet, the upcoming film that combines all of those facets. The Rocket Pictures, Starz Animation, and Touchstone Pictures production is set for theaters February 11th, so be sure to go and attend in Willy’s honor!

Occasionally, movie ideas come along that studios have to fight over. Such is the case with Gnomeo and Juliet, a 3D animated take on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet being produced by eOne Entertainment as part of Touchstone Pictures. And whom did they wrestle ownership away from? None other than Disney, legends in the field of CG toons. But as John Lasseter and the rest of the Pixar group merged back into Disney to focus on internal projects like this summer’s Toy Story 3, Gnomeo and Juliet made it’s way to Pathe International, set for a February 11th, 2011 release. The film will still be distributed internationally by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, with a soundtrack provided by Elton John and James Newton Howard.
