FIRST LOOK: Yogi Bear




This Christmas comes the movie tens of people have been waiting for.  A "live" action Yogi Bear starring Dan Akroyd as Yogi and Justin Timberlake as Boo Boo.  The movie also stars Ana Faris and Tom Cavanaugh as Ranger Smith.  Here is the official description:



Jellystone Park has been losing business, so greedy Mayor Brown decides 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 Boo Boo will be tossed out of the only home they've 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 their old nemesis Ranger Smith to find a way to save Jellystone Park from closing forever. 
Sounds like a...uhhh...well it appears to be....uhhhmmm....if there's one thing I know it's that this movie will be in theaters.  And what a surprise, it will be in 3D.  Hooray?  The trailer for Yogi Bear will be hitting later today and we'll be sure to post it here as soon as it becomes available. 

What say you?

UPDATE:

As we promised, here is the trailer for Yogi Bear.  Uhhhh....yeah....we'll talk in a minute:




This...looks...awful.  That of course means that kids will love it (maybe) and that sequels will be in the works. Was Dan Akroyd even trying to do Yogi's voice?  Yes, I know that nothing can stay the same when going from a TV show to movie, but that didn't even sound close.  It was someone doing an impersonation at a party and then their friends shrug so that don't have to tell them how bad it was.  At lease JT's voice came in very close to Boo Boo's.  Ah well, I guess not everything can be..you know...good.
