The duo of Tom and Jerry is coming back with a movie to refresh our childhood memories. Read to find out more.
Who here was not a fan of the Tom and Jerry cartoon as a kid? A lot of us would, as a matter of fact, literally pay to watch the duo come together once again after all these years. Well, the only price you will have to pay is the price of the ticket once we get rid of the quarantine life because The Tom and Jerry Movie is all set to make an appearance on the big screen on 23rd December 2020.
Its release was announced in 2018 in the month of October by director Tim Story. It is an American comedy and action animated movie based on the theatrical short film series, which goes by the same name directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. It is written by Craig Wright, Katie Silberman, April Prosser, and Kevin Costello and produced by Warner Animation Group (Christopher DeFaria), Turner Entertainment Co., and The Story Company.

Even during the global lockdown, the animation industry and the post-production Industry have not stopped working, and in fact, they are able to work while following the rules of social distancing. In the words of Christopher DeFaria, “We broke ourselves out into departments: editorial, visual effects, animation, and overall post-production management,” he said. “And with each of them, I asked to run three scenarios: status quo but with travel restrictions; a decentralized workflow with a central hub in London for editorial; or decentralize everything.”
This is not the first feature in a film of the cat and mouse duo, earlier in 1992, a film with similar characters has already been released. This time, however, the storyline will be different.
