Peter Rabbit is a 2018 live-action/computer-animated comedy film directed by Will Gluck from a screenplay by Rob Lieber and Gluck, based on the stories of Peter Rabbit created by Beatrix Potter.
Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers, now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne). James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.
There are some inventive, Paddington-style slapstick, and a good many throwaway quips that keep things buoyant. It is delightful and charming and will keep the children rocking with laughter as they watched the naughty rabbit cause mayhem in MacGregor’s garden, keeping the story alive for a new generation.
