“Peabody here.” DreamWorks Animation is using the WABAC machine to transfer the world’s smartest person — er, dog — and his boy from The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show to the big screen. In Mr. Peabody & Sherman, the title duo (Ty Burrell and Max Charles, respectively) travel back in time to experience landmark events and interact with folks you might have heard of, including Mona Lisa (Lake Bell) and Sigmund Freud (Mel Brooks). The voice cast also includes Ariel Winter, Allison Janney, Stephen Colbert, Leslie Mann, Stanley Tucci, Patrick Warburton and Dennis Haysbert. Directed by Rob Minkoff (The Lion King) and scripted by Craig Wright, the film based on Jay Ward’s cartoons opens March 7 via Fox. Here’s the first trailer:
