Eek! A Mouse: Check out the Trailer for 'Despereaux'

Man, you gotta love the escapism of Gary Ross movies. Dave, Pleasantville, Seabiscuit...I wish he was directing the remake of Creature from the Black Lagoon (after all, he's the writer and producer on the upcoming monster flick).

But Ross works at his own pace, which is admirable, and he's grabbed a really high quality property here in the animated children's flick, The Tale of Despereaux, and he's credited as co-director with Sam Fell, who directed Flushed Away. Based on the Newberry Award-winning book by Kate DiCamillo, it's the journey of Despereaux Tilling, who's slightly different than the other mice. But it's the individuality that makes his story worth telling - and there's a lesson in that for kids all over the place.

You might recognize some of the voices in what appears to be a gorgeously and lovingly rendered animated effort: Dustin Hoffman, Emma Watson, Christopher Lloyd, Sigourney Weaver, and Matthew Broderick as Despereaux. Yes, that's our third Matthew Broderick trailer today.

I didn't plan it like that, I swear.

The Tale of Despereaux will be in theaters on December 19th.

Sounds like Tim Conway as the headmaster near the end. I think I'll take the family to this one. Not because of Tim Conway, but not in spite of him either...

I think this will rock, frankly, and I don't say that about too many kid-first cartoons.
