Watch Exclusive 'Tom & Jerry' Featurette: Pitching a Fun World

Tom & Jerry

The spirited, delightful new family adventure Tom & Jerry finds the cat named Tom and the mouse named Jerry moving to New York City, where Jerry makes himself right at home in a fancy hotel. Management decides that won't do, especially with an important wedding coming up, so capable young Kayla (Chloë Grace Moretz) calls in Jerry's old rival, Tom, to hunt him down. Fierce battles inevitably ensue before the old rivals realize they may have to — yikes! — work together.

In our exclusive featurette, director Tim Story explains how the idea of animating the iconic characters in traditional 2D, set loose to interact in a live-action world, came to be. We also hear from actors Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, Rob Delaney, and Ken Jeong as they talk about what drew them to the project. As Moretz says, "It's a fun world."

Colin Jost also stars. Watch the captivating behind-the-scenes video in its entirety below, then get tickets to see Tom & Jerry when it opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, February 26.
