The much-hyped toon adventure film Tom & Jerry is set to release theatrically in India on February 19. The film will open in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages apart from the original English version.
The film is a mixture of live-action and animation, and features Chloe Grace Moretz, Michael Pena, Rob Delaney, Colin Jost and Ken Jeong in the cast.
Announcing the film’s release date in India, a trade analyst shared on Instagram on Thursday: “THE LOVABLE CAT-AND-MOUSE GAME TO RELEASE IN #INDIAN LANGUAGES… #WarnerBros to release #TomAndJerryMovie in #Hindi, #Tamil and #Telugu along with its original language [#English] in #India… Will release in *cinemas* on 19 Feb 2021.”
Directed by Tim Story, the film re-loads the escapades of the mischievous duo of Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse.
Nearly three decades ago, in 1992, Hollywood had attempted a theatrical length film version featuring the popular toon duo for the first time. Starring the voices of Richard Kind as Tom and Dana Hill as Jerry, “Tom And Jerry: The Movie” could not, however, match the overwhelming popularity of the evergreen TV series based on Tom and Jerry. –ians/abh/vnc
