‘Clifford The Big Red Dog’ Final Trailer: The Beloved Oversized Canine Will Grow On You This November

I know what you’re thinking. “WHY ARE WE NOT SEEING ANYTHING ABOUT CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG???” I know, right? Why don’t we know more about this wildly anticipated movie? Well, the answer is simple: COVID-19.  The adaptation of the popular children’s book series was supposed to have premiered at Toronto last month, followed by a run in theaters just days later. But the pandemic chewed that up like Clifford does a pair of house slippers, and now the film will open in theaters and Paramount+ in November.

But first, a new trailer! Clifford the Big Red Dog features a gigantic red CGI dog who makes life both awesome and difficult for the humans in his life. Jack Whitehall, Darby Camp, Tony Hale, Sienna Guillory, Russell Wong, Kenan Thompson, Rosie Perez, and John Cleese star. Not a bad cast.

Here’s the synopsis: When middle-schooler Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) meets a magical animal rescuer (John Cleese) who gifts her a little, red puppy, she never anticipated waking up to find a giant ten-foot hound in her tiny New York City apartment. While her single mom (Sienna Guillory) is away for business, Emily and her fun but impulsive uncle Casey (Jack Whitehall) 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!

Directed by Walt Becker, Clifford the Big Red Dog opens in theaters and Paramount+ on November 10th.
