Two of the most popular and memorable children’s series Sesame Street and Tom and Jerry have release dates for early 2021!
Sesame Street will be a live-action musical starring Anne Hathaway along with the famous Elmo, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster, Ernie, Bert and many more! The arrival of the movie is set for January 15, 2021. Production will begin in July with director Jonathan Krisel and producer Shawn Levy.
The show was so successful because it "provided a unique look at educational entertainment, with the series combining sketch comedy, animation, and puppetry." Big Bird teaches the children numbers, colors and the alphabet. There are others involved in this show, set on a city street full of valuable learning opportunities.
Tom and Jerry will be a combination of live-action and animation directed by Tim Story. In the film, Tom (the cat) and Jerry (the mouse) will not talk, but instead use physical interaction including face expressions to draw in laughs. Tom and Jerry will hit theaters April 16, 2021.
"Between 1940 and 1958, the original Tom & Jerry series yielded 114 shorts and won seven Academy Awards in the animated short category."
