Warner Bros. Pictures released the first trailer for “Smallfoot” this week, the film puts a new spin on the legend of Bigfoot and will release in theaters this fall.
Unlike regular Bigfoot movies, this version is told from the Yeti perspective. Featuring original music and an all-star cast, “Smallfoot” follows a bright young Yeti who finds something he thought didn’t exist – a human. News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple Yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village. The studio calls the film a story of “friendship, courage and the joy of discovery”.
As we mentioned earlier the film has an impressive cast behind it. “Smallfoot” stars Channing Tatum (“The LEGO Batman Movie,” the “Jump Street” films) as the Yeti named Migo, and James Corden (“Trolls,” “The Emoji Movie”) as the Smallfoot named Percy. Also starring are Zendaya (“Spider-Man: Homecoming”), Common (“Selma”), LeBron James (upcoming “Space Jam 2”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Danny DeVito (“The Lorax,” Oscar nominee for “Erin Brockovich”), Yara Shahidi (TV’s “Black-ish”), Ely Henry (TV’s “Justice League Action”), and Jimmy Tatro (“22 Jump Street”).
“Smallfoot” is directed by Karey Kirkpatrick, Annie Award-winning director of “Over the Hedge” and Annie nominee for the screenplays for “Chicken Run” and “James and the Giant Peach.” The film is produced by Bonne Radford (“Curious George”), Glenn Ficarra (“Storks,” “The is Us,”) and John Requa (“Storks,” “This is Us”). Serving as executive producers are Nicholas Stoller, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Jared Stern, Sergio Pablos, and Kirkpatrick. The creative team includes editor Peter Ettinger, and composer Heitor Pereira.

Warner Bros. Pictures will debut “Smallfoot” in theaters September 28, 2018. The animated-comedy will share a release weekend with the films “Little Women,” the comedy “Night School,” and the film “Serenity”.
