It’s been a minute since we last heard anything about the film adaptation of the children’s book series Clifford the Big Red Dog, and well, the time hasn’t helped much.
The film looks exactly like you’d expect, with the main character being a big red dog. This ain’t yo mama’s Beethoven!
When middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) meets a magical animal rescuer (John Cleese) who gifts her a little, red puppy, she never anticipated waking up to find a giant ten-foot hound in her small New York City apartment. While her single mom (Sienna Guillory) is away for business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) set out on an adventure that will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat as our heroes take a bite out of the Big Apple. Based on the beloved Scholastic book character, Clifford will teach the world how to love big!
Based on the children’s book series by Norman Bridwell, the film is directed by Walt Becker from screenplay written by Jay Scherick, David Ronn, Annie Mumolo, and Stan Chervin. Jordan Kerner and Scholastic Entertainment’s Deborah Forte are also producing.
Clifford the Big Red Dog, comes to the BIG screen September 17. 🐾
