Generations of kids have grown up on Beatrix Potter’s classic tales of fluffy creature hijinks.
But how will such jolly polite japes fare when it comes to 21st century children’s attention spans? Cue a modern makeover… Peter Rabbit (voiced by James Corden), his cousin, sisters and many friends live happily in the English countryside, tormenting old Mr. MacGregor in the name of satiating their vegetarian cravings. But when Mr. Mac passes and his uptight, city-bred nephew Thomas (Domhnall Gleeson) arrives, things take an abrupt turn for the worse – for all involved. Amongst the mayhem and classic slapstick there are genuinely sweet moments, and it’s all surprisingly faithful to the legacy of Miss Potter – the nods to her wondrous illustrations are particularly delightful. Plus there’s an ace Aussie voice cast that includes Sia, Margot Robbie and Bryan Brown.
