It's Official: Tom And Jerry Is Getting A Live-Action Remake And Releasing On Christmas 2020

The upcoming Tom and Jerry movie will star Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Ken Jeong, Rob Delaney, Jordan Bolger, and Pallavi Sharda as the main cast.

We have all grown up watching Tom and Jerry over the years. Not just me, but millennials' first memories of cartoons include the iconic cat and mouse show that entertained us over the years. 

And now, in a day and age where remakes are taking over Hollywood, we are finally getting another one and this time, it's our beloved childhood cartoon, Tom and Jerry. 

 

The iconic cartoon will hit the big screens next year's holiday season as Warner Bros decided to move the much-anticipated film to Dec. 23, 2020, release. Previously, it was slated to release on April 2021.

The live-action hybrid movie will be directed by Tim Story. However, there is no confirmation as to what Warners Bros have named the movie. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

 



 

 

If you are looking to find out what the movie will be about, don't worry we have all the details here. Tom and Jerry will have Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Ken Jeong, Rob Delaney, Jordan Bolger and Pallavi Sharda as the main cast. It is developed by Warner Bros. Animation Group.

 

According to the report, the upcoming movie will focus on Tom and Jerry soon after they are evicted from their homes. The duo later has to relocate to a fancy New York hotel, where Kayla (Moretz), an employee named will lose her job if she can't kick out Jerry before a high-class wedding takes place at the hotel. Following this, she hires the piano-playing Tom to get rid of Jerry. Will she be successful? Well, for that we will have to wait till next year's Christmas. 

 

If you are looking to catch up on other live-action remakes coming your way, you can also keep an eye on the upcoming The Little Mermaid live-action remake at Disney. The upcoming Little Mermaid directed by Rob Marshall had caused a stir on social media, particularly over its casting.

 



 

 

When singer-actor Halle Bailey from Chloe x Halle was tapped by Disney to play Ariel, many fans were not too happy about it. Many even tossed a ton of racist hate at Bailey and Disney because a black actress playing Ariel was something they just couldn't fathom.

“After an extensive search, it was abundantly clear that Halle possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence, and substance — plus a glorious singing voice — all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role,” Rob Marshall said in a statement, as reported by Variety. He had spent a lot of time casting the perfect Ariel and he finally cast Bailey as the iconic Disney character.
