I guess it was only a matter of time before Channing Tatum headlined another animated movie (he was previously heard in 2014’s THE BOOK OF LIFE), and SMALLFOOT seems as good an option as any. Having some fun with the abominable snowman mythology, Tatum plays a snow-dwelling yeti who is fascinated with regular humans, calling them “smallfoots”, though some of his people don’t believe they actually exist… a sort of role reversal on the bigfoot legend. The supporting cast includes James Corden, Zendaya, Common, LeBron James, Gina Rodriguez, Danny DeVito, Yara Shahidi, Ely Henry and Jimmy Tatro. Check out the first trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

An animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, “Smallfoot” turns the Bigfoot legend upside down when a bright young Yeti 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, in an all new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.

SMALLFOOT opens September 28, 2018
