It’s coming out in June. Before I saw the trailer, I had such high hopes. This may be the nail in the coffin for that comic. If I had Garfield stock, I would sell.
The guy who regularly does Garfield’s voice (Lorenzo Music) isn’t even helping out with the movie. I can’t blame him, since he died in 2001, but it’s still disheartening because we all know what Garfield sounds like, and it’s just not him. Like Kermit, except that the new voice isn’t even attempting an impersonation.
Still, the animation is pretty decent. And the good news is that Bill Murray is the new voice of Garfield. So I’m trying to hang on to hope that it won’t totally bomb. I hope I have to eat my words come next June.
