Those of a certain vintage hold Beatrix Potter's anthropomorphic animal stories very close to their hearts, and news of an upcoming movie adaptation will surely seize the attention.
One of the author's most famous creations, floppy-eared bunny Peter Rabbit, is now coming to the screen in the film of the same name, as voiced by James Corden under the direction of Easy A and Annie helmer Will Gluck.
Here's the official synopsis:
In Peter Rabbit™, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers now takes on the starring role of his own contemporary comedy. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as their fight to gain control of McGregor’s coveted vegetable garden and the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne) extends to the Lake District and London. James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.
