Illumination is set to release a new Grinch film later this year, as today we get our first look at the animated picture courtesy of a TV spot surrounding the Winter Olympics, which kick off today in South Korea. Titled The Grinch, the movie is expected to retell the story of Dr. Seuss’ classic book How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
In the above clip we see the Grinch living out his dreams as a figure skater, thus the ad being shared in conjunction with the Winter Olympics. Benedict Cumberbatch has been tapped to voice the Grinch, while Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me, Minions) is in charge of animation.
The Grinch is scheduled to land in theaters November 8 of this year.
Stay tuned for more.
