The Garfield Movie | Official Trailer
The Garfield Movie trailer has sparked enthusiasm throughout the internet! The trailer offers a first look at Garfield’s story, which will center on the titular cat’s bond with his owner, Jon Arbuckle.
Garfield’s trailer jokes on some of the cat’s core characteristics, such as his love of delicacies like lasagna and his hold over Jon.
The trailer opens with an adorable baby, Garfield, yearning to enter a pizzeria where Jon Arbuckle is eating alone.
This, however, is all an attempt to find his next feast, as he finally gulps down everything on the menu, setting the hilarious tone for the rest of the film. A whirlwind adventure is undoubtedly in store for Garfield and Odie as we meet Vic, Garfield’s father, for the first time.
Garfield and Vic are an equation for hilarious disaster with mischief and chaos suitable for a fun-fueled family outing.
The Garfield trailer lets fans hear Pratt’s voice as the lasagna-loving cat. In the Garfield trailer, Pratt plays a similarly sluggish depiction of the cat, whose voice sounds strangely similar to Pratt’s normal speaking voice.
