Peter Rabbit and his garden friends are coming back with an all-new adventure this Spring. Sony Pictures released an official trailer for the CG comedy on social media, giving fans a look at the new movie before its Easter debut in 2020. The cast includes Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, David Oyelowo, Elizabeth Debicki, Margot Robbie, and James Corden as Peter Rabbit.
The official description reads, “Bea, Thomas, and the rabbits have created a makeshift family, but despite his best efforts, Peter can’t seem to shake his mischievous reputation. Adventuring out of the garden, Peter finds himself in a world where his mischief is appreciated, but when his family risks everything to come looking for him, Peter must figure out what kind of bunny he wants to be.”
Will Gluck directed the sequel for Sony Pictures, working from a script that he wrote with Patrick Burleigh. The movie is based on characters and Tales of “Peter Rabbit” by Beatrix Potter and produced by Will Gluck and Zareh Nalbandian.
The original “Peter Rabbit” released in 2018 and was also directed by Will Gluck. The movie opened in second-place behind “Fifty Shades Freed” in February, and made $23M on its opening weekend. The CG hit went on to make over $351.2M worldwide for the studio.
