Make way for Mr. Peabody & Sherman, DreamWorks Animation’s new comedy about a dog and his boy. Yes, you heard right—Mr. Peabody’s IQ is so high, this dog is actually the world’s smartest person! So smart that he’s even invented the WABAC, a time-travelling machine that he and his adopted boy Sherman use to explore the world throughout the ages. Based on the beloved 1960s cartoon, Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a role-reversal reinvention like no other.
Barreling through time, Mr. Peabody and Sherman explore the universe, crossing paths with the likes of Marie Antoinette in the French Revolution and da Vinci during the Italian Renaissance. But when Sherman uses the WABAC without permission and history starts to spiral out of control, the results are disastrous—and hilarious, thanks in part to a cast that includes such comedic stars as Ty Burrell, Stephen Colbert, and Mel Brooks. With a rich storyline and vast possibilities for vibrant characters and locations, the creative forces at DreamWorks Animation had a field day bringing the film to fruition.
That imaginative spirit is captured here from beginning to end as the DreamWorks team offers fascinating insights on how the vision developed. Concept art, character backgrounds, design inspiration, and exclusive behind-the-scenes information make The Art of Mr. Peabody & Sherman the ultimate keepsake for families and film fans alike.
