When I was a kid in the 80’s, I would wake up super early to enjoy a bowl of cornflakes, and sit in front of the tube to watch my favorite cartoons. The one that sticks out most in my memory book is Tom and Jerry. I loved to watch their silly shenanigans and their ongoing feuds.
I was delighted to hear that Warner Bros. had created a NEW live action film staring my two favorite frenemies.
In celebration of the new release, the last couple of days we have baking, breaking piñatas and we even interview the Director, Tim Story. We’ve had a blast, and I am thrilled to share this film with my youngest son Drew.
Tom and Jerry is NOW in select theaters and on HBO Max!
Disclosure: Thank you Warner Bros for partnering with me for the new Tom and Jerry Movie. All opinions are my own.
Watch the trailer here.
Tom & Jerry is an upcoming American live-action/animated comedy film based on the characters of the same name created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. The film is directed by Tim Story and written by Kevin Costello. It stars the famous cat and mouse duo of the film, Tom and Jerry.
The mischievous mouse Jerry has taken up residence in New York City’s finest hotel on the eve of “the wedding of the century,” forcing the event’s desperate planner, a young employee named Kayla, to hire an alley cat named Tom to get rid of him. However, chaos ensues with the cat and mouse battle, threatening to destroy her career, the wedding, and possibly the hotel itself, as the chase causes widespread mayhem. But soon, an even bigger problem arises: a diabolically ambitious staffer conspiring against all three of them.
Drew and I got an early screening of the film, and I couldn’t help but to feel a bit nostalgic. Even though it is a live-action film, I appreciate the fact that they kept the integrity and personalities of the original cartoon characters.
Tom a Jerry are hilarious as ever, and are still up to their old tricks. Many of the scenes were action packed, and the comedy kept us in ongoing belly laughs. I haven’t laughed this hard in some time. Tears… AND I loved to see my son Drew enjoying some of my childhood entertainment.
If you are a Tom and Jerry fan, this film is a MUST-SEE!
Drew and I spoke to Director, Tim Story about the new film.
My son asked, “What was your favorite scene you created and why?”
Tim: “Since Tom and Jerry always destroy the house in the original cartoon, they had to destroy a room. The most fun was taking what I had grown up watching over and over again, and doing it inside a room.”
I too LOVE this scene! It totally brought me back to the original cartoon.
This film is for the entire family, and I can’t wait for you all to see it!
