Garfield is back for his first movie since the two live-action ones starring Bill Murray as Garfield in the early 2000s.
In this new animated movie from Sony Pictures, Garfield is voiced by Chris Pratt, who is picking up a few big voice roles recently and will follow the titular cat, alongside Odie and Garfield’s father, voiced by Samuel L. Jackson, on an adventure to work together.

I really liked the trailer. The set-up with the cute cat and then Garfield devouring the food was great, and Pratt seems great for this role.
