Yogi Bear is another one of those movies where they take beloved characters from old cartoons and stick them in a live action environment and CGI them in. We saw it with Garfield, Scooby Doo and we’ll be seeing it in The Smurfs next year.
The first trailer for Yogi Bear has appeared online with an short introduction from Dan Aykroyd, who is the voice behind Yogi. The film also features Justin Timberlake as Boo-Boo Bear (although you wouldn’t have thought it) and Anna Faris who is probably just collecting a paycheck.
Jellystone Park has been losing business, so greedy Mayor Brown decides to shut it down and sell the land. That means families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors — and, even worse, Yogi and Boo Boo will be tossed out of the only home they’ve ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove that he really is “smarter than the average bear” as he and Boo Boo join forces with their old nemesis Ranger Smith to find a way to save Jellystone Park from closing forever.
Warner Bros. will be releasing Yogi Bear on December 17th. Will you be seeing it? Or will Tron Legacy be taking up all your attention that day?
