The movie’s cast includes Jack Whitehall, Darby Camp, John Cleese, Rozie Perez, Paul Rodriguez, Kenan Thompson, and David Alan Grier. The movie is based on the massively popular children’s book series of the same name. It was written by legendary author Norman Bridwell. Bridwell’s stories have been transformed into animated adaptations multiple times ever since he released his first book of the series. But this is the first time a live-action movie is happening.
Check out the official image below:
The movie team has ensured to remain true to the source. The image released on social media reveals a big red CGI Labrador. The dog has red fur and thick black eyes. Clifford is a puppy adopted by a family in the books. The family realizes that they have a bit more than they could chew with Clifford. The dog soon outgrows them all. Clifford’s size has varied in each story. He could be as big as a fully grown man or even bigger.
Clifford has been featured in an Amazon Prime animated web-series as well as a PBS show. The latter saw the late John Ritter lend his voice for the show. 2004 was Clifford’s last foray into a feature-length film. Clifford’s Really Big Movie featured a talking Clifford. But from what we know so far, Clifford will not be talking in the live-action movie coming next year.
