This was all going so well. Based on a series of popular books by Beatrice Potter, Peter Rabbit was a cheeky, blue jacket wearing titular animal who bounced across the garden of the hapless Mr McGregor nibbling at this vegetables. Beloved by all, Peter was a rambunctious character children adored.
Then came a brand new update with an ever-popular television series and a young generation got introduced to the little creature. So, naturally, there would be a movie out right?
From the get go to this trailer, the components are right: the visuals, the bunny, the sweeping music.
Then Peter talks and you realise it is the voice of James Cordon.
No. No thank you. No ta. Thanks.
What do you think?
Peter Rabbit is out next year!
