DreamWorks Animation Plans Rocky & Bullwinkle Short


DreamWorks Animation Plans Rocky & Bullwinkle Short
Moose! Squirrel! Return!

The last time someone tried to bring Jay Ward's cult cartoon characters Rocky and Bullwinkle to the screen, the result was the less-than-successful 2000 flopbuster, which all involved – particularly Robert De Niro – would probably rather forget. DreamWorks Animation will be hoping for better luck with an animated short film aimed for release some time next year.
Featuring the original voice of Rocket “Rocky” J. Squirrel June Foray and SpongeBob’s Tom Kenny as moose pal Bullwinkle, the new short is most likely tied to the release of DreamWorks’ Mr. Peabody And Sherman, which utilises the moose and the squirrel’s cartoon stable mates (see the latest trailer below).
No information has been released about the plot though it'll probably see our heroes going up against villains such as Cold War troublemakers Boris and Natasha. We do, however, know thatBeauty And The Beast’s Gary Trousdale will direct from a script by Night At The Museum duo Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon. “For an incredible 83 years, June Foray has left a tremendous imprint on the entire entertainment industry,” Executive Producer Tiffany Ward tells Variety. “Her amazingly indelible performances have enchanted generations and earned her a permanent place in the annals of popular culture.”
