Paramount Pictures has released the first full trailer for its upcoming live-action/CG-hybrid film adaptation of the children’s book series by Norman Birdwell, Clifford the Big Red Dog.

In the film, “when middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth meets a magical animal rescuer who gifts her a little, red puppy, she never anticipated waking up to find a giant ten-foot hound in her small New York City apartment. While her single mom is away for business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey set out on an adventure that will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat as our heroes take a bite out of the Big Apple. Based on the beloved Scholastic book character, Clifford will teach the world how to love big!”

The movie stars Darby Camp (Big Little Lies) as Emily, Jack Whitehall (Jungle Cruise) as Uncle Casey, John Cleese (Monty Python) as Mr. Bridwell, Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil) as Maggie, Tony Hale (Veep) as Peter, and David Alan Grier as the voice of Clifford (In Living Color). The film also features Izaac Wang, Rosie Pere, Kenan Thompson, Paul Rodriguez and Jessica Keenan Wyn.

The film is directed by Walt Becker from a screenplay written by Jay Scherick, David Ronn, Annie Mumolo, and Stan Chervin. Jordan Kerner and Scholastic Entertainment’s Deborah Forte are also producing.

Clifford the Big Red Dog is scheduled to be released on Friday, September 17th.
