New Stills for the upcoming 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' : Sneak Peek (UPDATE)


Sherman (Max Charles) and his adoptive father

Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell) is a genius dog, and Sherman (Max Charles) is his adopted son. Even the WABAC (pronounced "way back") time-travel machine is back, but modernized for a new generation.

 New Stills for the upcoming Dreamworks animation feature 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman' 

One big update from the original -- Mr. Peabody drives a scooter with a sidecar. Director Rob Minkoff says the discussion of the right vehicle for the talking dog was a long one. "This scooter just sort of fit his personality."


Minkoff is confident that even the generation that has never heard of the original will love the 3-D screen version. "I pitch it to kids who don't know the characters, and when they hear that Mr. Peabody is a dog that adopts a boy, it just sort of blows their mind," he says. "They love it."
Sherman uses the WABAC machine to travel back in time to learn about history firsthand. And it works for the girls, too, including classmate Penny Peterson (Modern Family's Ariel Winter). Here, Sherman takes her on a spin on Leonardo da Vinci's flying machine.
 The adventure begins when Penny decides she likes ancient Egypt so much that she's going to stay forever. This is a big no-no for time travel. "The prospect of altering history is something they have to worry about," Minkoff says. That forces Mr. Peabody to save the day, torches and all.

 The film "expands the relationship" between Mr. Peabody and Sherman, Minkoff says. The oddball family has never had to deal with outside influences -- like girls.



...and we get these 3 last stills from 'The Rotoscoopers'...
