Right off "Ratatouille"'s tail comes another animated mouse tale movie entitled "The Tale of Despereaux" and Universal Pictures have released its trailer. Bringing a sneak peek into the studio's attempt on the CG-medium, the video footage gives a closer look into the adaptation movie.
Through the trailer, viewers will be introduced to Despereaux Tilling, a unique mouse living in a rodent's village under a castle, and from it, they can also see that Despereaux is different from his kind either it is from his appearance or from his way of thinking. From what is outed by the compilation of clips, it seems that "Tale of Despereaux" shared similar idea with Academy Awards-winning animation "Ratatouille" in the sense that the two movies tells the story of mice who are not afraid of human and strive to achieve what they believe they are meant to be.
Based on Kate DiCamillo's Newbery Medal-winning fantasy novel, "Tale of Despereaux" follows a little mouse with a big ear. Outcasted by other mice due to his strange appearance, he tops it by doing what mice shouldn't do, like befriends and falls in love with a human being, Princess Pea. But, by being different, Despereaux is up for a whole new adventure which will make him a hero. The movie set for December 19 release puts up an all-star ensemble voice cast that include Matthew Broderick, Emma Watson, Dustin Hoffman, Tracey Ullman, Sigourney Weaver, William H. Macy, Kevin Kline, Stanley Tucci and Robbie Coltrane.
