New Clifford the Big Red Dog trailer is filled with heartwarming canine mayhem
Clifford the Big Red Dog, created by Norman Bridwell, has been a staple of children’s literature for almost 60 years, and it has also been well portrayed in animated TV shows and even a movie film. Next month, however, will mark the character’s live-action debut, and following the trailer released in June, a new preview for Paramount’s’ Clifford the big red dog the film is now here. It shows the heartwarming chaos of the main character, as well as a pinch of the issues he’ll encounter.
This Clifford the big red dog the adaptation follows Emily Elizabeth Howard of Darby Camp, a college girl who lives with her uncle Casey, played by Jungle cruise‘s Jack Whitehall, who struggles to fit in both home and school. Lucky for her, she marks a new friend in the form of Clifford, a red puppy gifted to her by John Cleese’s Mr. Bridwell, who as seen in the trailer above tells her that the The dog’s ultimate size will depend on how much Emily loves him. Well, it’s clear that she likes Clifford a lot considering how tall he is in such a short time.
As a family film, it stands to reason that Clifford the big red dog would be filled with shenanigans, and we get a lot of it in the trailer, from Case appropriately panicking about Clifford getting huge to a trip awkward enough to see the vet, played by SNLis Kenan Thompson. And it doesn’t take long for Clifford to make New York City his playground, though the locals in Emily and Casey’s neighborhood quickly flare up for him.
But when a 10ft red dog (who doesn’t speak) surfaces, it will naturally attract attention, and not all will be good. With police offering a $ 25,000 reward for Clifford’s capture, a businessman named Peter Tiernan, played by Tony Hale of Veep, wants to apprehend the dog, leaving the care to Casey, Emily, his friend Owen (Izaac Wang) and some of the neighbors band together to protect Clifford. So rest assured you will have plenty of light moments in the live action Clifford the big red dog movie, there will be adversity along the way. Hey, you have to keep the people on their toes!
