We are a little over a month away from the release of Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank. This new animated feature from Paramount Pictures looks like it will be a lot of fun! The animation looks great and the film is supported by an A-list cast doing the voices. With many people heading to theaters this weekend to enjoy Jurassic World: Dominion, Paws of Fury is looking to capitalize on that with a brand new trailer. You can check it out below!
The Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank trailer kicks off with an homage to Jurassic Park with the bowl of soup vibrating because of an approaching force. While it’s not a dinosaur, it is a huge sumo wrestler that our hero Hank will have to face in the film. From there we learn that the film is going to focus on Hank’s improbable journey to becoming a samurai.
We had already mentioned that the animation looks great. As well that it’s backed up by some very well-known names in Hollywood to provide the voices. This includes Michael Cerra along with Samuel L. Jackson, Ricky Gervais, George Takei, Michelle Yeoh, Aasif Mandvi, and Gabriel Iglesias.
Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank is directed by Rob Minkoff, Mark Koetsier, and Chris Bailey. Based on a screenplay by Ed Stone & Nate Hopper and Mel Brooks, Norman Steinberg, Andrew Bergman, Richard Pryor, and Alan Uger. From a story by Bergman.
Here is the synopsis for Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank
