In Peter Rabbit, the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers now takes on the starring role of his own contemporary comedy. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as their fight to gain control of McGregor’s coveted vegetable garden and the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne) extends to the Lake District and London.  James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.

Commenting on the announcement, James Corden said, “Every British child falls in love with Peter Rabbit sooner or later. I hope that a new generation will see this film and rediscover the incredible books and storytelling of Beatrix Potter and fall in love with the character as I did.  That’s why I wanted to be part of this film.”

Will Gluck added, “In making this film, we’ve always felt as humble custodians entrusted with Peter’s legacy.  My parents introduced Peter to me, and I in turn introduced him to my own children – and it’s my great honor to be directing a film that will bring him to cinemas everywhere.”

Francesca Dow, Managing Director Penguin Random House Children’s UK, added, “It has been a pleasure to work with Will Gluck, Zareh Nalbandian, and the team at Columbia Pictures.   Generations of readers have loved Peter Rabbit and we are excited that a whole new audience will be able to engage with the delightful world and wonderful characters that Beatrix Potter has created.”
