First "Underdog" Teaser Hits the Scene

by | February 14, 2007 | Comments

If you’re old enough to remember "Underdog," then you’re probably too old to appreciate the direction in which Disney has decided to take the character. And if you’re too young to know who Underdog is, then all you’ll see in this brand-new teaser is a dog who can fly.

"Name recognition" is the game being played here, and all I can say is I hope "Underdog" turns out better than "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle" and "Dudley Do-Right." Click here to see the new "Underdog" teaser, but don’t expect a whole lot. Aside from one cute shot of a flying doggy, we’re not offered much in the way of movie footage.

Opening August 8th, "Underdog" comes from the director of "Racing Stripes," and it stars Peter Dinklage, Patrick Warburton and the voices of Amy Adams and Jason Lee. I’ve been wrong before (a whole lot of time, actually) but to me this trailer looks like a harbinger of obvious puns and broad silliness. Still, the dog is pretty cute — even if it doesn’t look a darn thing like the Underdog I remember.
