Sony Pictures Releasing have debuted the new UK trailer and poster for the upcoming Peter Rabbit adaptation.
Directed by Will Gluck from a screen story and screenplay by Rob Lieber and Gluck, and based on the characters from the original Tales of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, the film stars James Corden as the mischievous Peter, Rose Byrne in the female lead role of Bea and Domhnall Gleeson as Mr. McGregor. Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley will voice the roles of Peter’s sisters Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.
James Corden said, “Every British child falls in love with Peter Rabbit sooner or later. I hope that a new generation will see this film and rediscover the incredible books and storytelling of Beatrix Potter and fall in love with the character as I did. That’s why I wanted to be part of this film.”
Will Gluck added, “In making this film, we’ve always felt as humble custodians entrusted with Peter’s legacy. My parents introduced Peter to me, and I, in turn, introduced him to my own children – and it’s my great honour to be directing a film that will bring him to cinemas everywhere.”
Peter Rabbit will be released in cinemas March 16, 2018
