The new Garfield finally has an official release date, which means we’ll get to see if the internet was right or not Chris Prattcasting in the title role. Whatever the reason, the combo of Pratt voicing both Garfield the cat and Mario from Super Mario Bros. had people freaked out. Social media had a bit of a hard time with Chris Pratt at the time. Either way, the lasagna-munching Monday-hating orange cat is coming to the big screen on February 16, 2024.
Right now, the studio hasn’t really shared any plot details. Looks like they are keeping news about the movie under wraps. However, we know that well Samuel L. Jackson will also star in the film as a brand new character, Vic, who is Garfield’s father. Garfield’s family has been explored a bit in the comics, but his father has never appeared, named Vic or otherwise.
The film will be directed by Mark Dindal, known for films such as The Emperor’s New Groove and Little chicken. He has also done extensive special effects on other Disney films such as The little Mermaid and The Rescuers Down Under. The script comes to Dindal through David Reynolds, one of the main writers behind it The Emperor’s New Groove and finding Nemo.
It will be the first time Garfield been to the cinema since Garfield: The Movie in 2004 and the successor from 2006 Garfield: A Tale Of Two Kitties. Those two movies, if you don’t remember, weren’t really received that well. Actually, Bill Murray even jokes that they would be his only regret Zombieland. Both films have a Rotten Tomatoes score of less than 20 percent. Here’s hoping the 2024 release helps us all forget.
Once again, Garfield is scheduled for release on February 16, 2024.
