TRAILER: Universal’s “Woody Woodpecker” – Animation Scoop

TRAILER: Universal’s “Woody Woodpecker”

One year ago we posted the Brazilian trailer for a live action/animation hybrid Woody Woodpecker feature. Well, “Guess Who?”… that feature makes its US debut on DVD on February 6th 2018, via Universal. Filmed in Vancouver and directed by Alex Zamm (Inspector Gadget 2), the movie stars Eric Bauza (Ren & Stimpy, Puss In Boots, Lego Star Wars) as the voice of Woody. Here’s the English language trailer:

The hyperactive red-headed bird enters a turf war with a con artist wanting to tear down his home in an effort to build a house to flip. Brazilian actress Thalia Ayala co-stars as Brittany, girlfriend of a shady lawyer named Lance Walters (Timothy Omundson), who goes to war with the Woodpecker. What do you think of Woody’s new look?

    I only wish they’d used more tired cliches and references in the script, sooner.
