Think back to your childhood years of growing up and the one cartoon that you never wanted to miss. If you’re anything like me, Tom & Jerry was THE cartoon that I LOVED. And even after all these years, I found out that I still love it just as much.
I’m over the moon that there is a new movie coming out that will make families all over the world happy! Tom & Jerry: The Movie is being released today February 26th in certain theaters and also streaming on HBO Max.
I KNOW that this movie is going to be a hit because the concept and characters are too fun to miss! (We all have a soft spot for this cat and mouse duo in our hearts!)
I was recently invited to sit down with Tim Story the director of the film and other bloggers to learn a few fun things about the movie. As always, I’m here to share a few of those tidbits with you, from my own words and point of view!
Tom & Jerry: The Movie – DON’T MISS THIS ONE!
Everyone who was a part of this movie is so excited. Being able to feel the excitement during this roundtable was amazing. There’s a reason that this movie is going to be great and it’s because of the people who were a part of creating it!
What is one of the best parts of making this movie?
One of the best parts about making this movie is the reaction from the people who watch it. Families are finding a reason to come together, and sit and watch a movie that is certain to have them rolling with laughter. (who doesn’t love this dazzling duo?!)
The end product of this movie truly is special. People love this movie and people love coming together to watch this movie. Tom & Jerry are almost like fighting siblings and they always make certain that they make up in the end. This gives people laughter and hope, all at once.
The process that was a lot of fun was seeing people’s reactions to the movie after watching it. The smiles on the faces, the giggles from the crowd..that’s really what makes the making of this movie amazing.
Finding the perfect cast
The actors that were chosen for the roles were amazing. Fun fact? A puppet of Tom & Jerry was actually used with puppeteers to help the actors get into character and work. (Talk about awesome!)
Can you imagine the process of learning how to work with a puppet? Talk about the skill!
Combine animation and reality
One of the interesting parts of the movie was finding a way to combine the animation with the real-life actors. (This is done perfectly, BTW!)
But when you stop and think about it, its’ a lot of work to combine the two to make the communication seamless. This was countless hours of work to make it all go together. So many hours of production and animation for a 2-hour movie!
Final Thoughts About Tom & Jerry: The Movie
I loved Tom & Jerry growing up and now my kids are loving them, too. How fun and awesome is that? Since our household is all about movies, I love being able to snuggle up with the kids to watch movies like that.
And in reality, isn’t that what it’s all about? Generations connecting together over something that we all love and adore?
This movie is exactly what we all need right now. It’s full of fun antics, wild times, and a lot of love.
If you’re looking for an amazing family movie, don’t miss out on this!
To celebrate we even made a Tom and Jerry Surprise cake!!
