Yogi Bear: Sneak Peek

One of the icons of the last century will try to grab the attention of the new generation coming this year. "Yogi Bear" is a mix of 3D and CGI animation and live action scenes that promises to rekindle the magic of the basket-stealing bear. This new adaptation of Hanna-Barbera’s classic cartoon will star Dan Aykroyd as the voice of Jellystone Park’s most famous troublemaker, Yogi Bear. Justin Timberlake will star as the voice of Boo Boo, Yogi’s faithful pal and co-conspirator in his tireless schemes to separate Jellystone Park patrons from their lunches. The film’s live-action cast includes Anna Faris as nature documentary filmmaker Rachel Johnson and Tom Cavanagh as Yogi’s amiable nemesis Ranger Smith. TJ Miller stars as Smith’s diligent deputy, Ranger Jones. Andrew Daly headlines as the conniving Mayor Brown. Watch the trailer for "Yogi Bear" after the jump.

Jellystone Park has been losing business, so Mayor Brown has decided to shut it down and sell the land. That means families will no longer be able to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors—and, even worse, Yogi and his pal Boo Boo will be tossed out of the only home they have ever known. Faced with his biggest challenge ever, Yogi must prove that he really is “smarter than the average bear” as he and Boo Boo join forces with Ranger Smith to find a way to save the park from closing forever.

One of television’s most beloved cartoon characters, Yogi Bear began as a feature of the Hanna-Barbera series “The Huckleberry Hound Show” before headlining his own show in 1961. Yogi’s television success led to a nationally syndicated comic strip and, in 1964, he became the first Hanna-Barbera cartoon character to make his movie screen debut in “Hey There, It’s Yogi Bear.” Yogi Bear has since appeared as several series and one-hour specials.

Everyone’s favorite pic-a-nic basket-stealing bear comes to the big screen in “Yogi Bear” set for worldwide release starting December 2010. It will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
