Everything We Know About “Peter Rabbit”

Posted 2018/02/14 1344 0


It is based on the children’s book story in 1902. It follows an anthropomorphic rabbit named Peter Rabbit and a lifelong conflict of his with their neighborhood farmer/gardener Mr. McGregor. His delicious vegetables have always been Peter’s source of temptation. However, the farmer will not stop until the rabbit is put in a pie. Nonetheless, the two are battling each other for the admiration of the animal-loving neighbor Bea.

The story has been described as a derisive comedy live-action adaptation of the children’s traditional story but is hugely modernized for today’s moviegoers. It might be a bit bizarre that a movie featuring the timeless characters is just coming to the silver screen, although the rights were sought actually by Walt Disney way back in 1938. Disney asked for “Peter Rabbit” to be filmed but the author, Beatrix Potter, declined in giving over the rights.

In the original children’s book, Peter Rabbit is a story that centers on a family of rabbits, particularly the anthropomorphic rabbits. The mother is a widow. She cautions her children not to enter the vegetable garden of a certain person called Mr. McGregor. She tells them that their father had an accident in that place. She adds that their father was put in Mrs. McGregor’s pie.

Her obedient daughters refrain from going to the garden. However, Peter goes to the garden to eat some vegetables. He ends up overeating and looks for parsley to get rid of his stomachache. He is then spotted by the owner and loses his shoes and jackets while he tries to escape. He hides in a shed but has to escape once again when the man finds him. This is when Peter got completely lost.

He sneaks past a cat and finds the gate where he made his way to the garden. He heads for it even though he is spotted again and chased by the owner. He wriggles beneath the gate and escapes that place. He finds his lost clothing, which is used by Mr. McGregor as a scarecrow.

Peter returns home sick and is sent to bed by his mother. His obedient sisters have a great dinner of berries and milk, whereas he instead has chamomile tea for supper.


James Corden is voicing Peter Rabbit, who attempts to outsmart the garden owner Mr. McGregor and steal his vegetables.

Domhnall Gleeson plays the role of Mr. McGregor.

Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki and Daisy Ridley are also included in the voice cast as the triplet sisters of Peter – Flopsy, Cottontail and Mopsy.

Rose Byrne plays the warm-hearted neighbor Bea.

Production Information

The “party animals” phrase is literally taken in a scene in Peter Rabbit. Squirrels and porcupines take part in dance battles, well-dressed pigs and foxes run wild around a messy dwelling and bunnies slide down some banisters. It is just one of the many facets witnessed in Peter Rabbit, written by Beatrix Potter.

Writer-director Will Gluck says that they did not change the story. But because the books are short, they decided to keep it going. They incorporated the memorable plot points and characters of the 23-part story of the book author. They painstakingly reestablished everything they could from the children’s books and did their best to honor every moment of author Beatrix Potter all throughout the film. This may appear with the marketing; however, if people love the author and her books, they would love the film.

They honor the live-action’s source material. It is CG/live-action hybrid, which recreates a lot of moments from the author’s drawings. They are brought to life by Animal Logic digital studio. The studio has boasted credits such as “Happy Feet” and “The Lego Movie”.

The watercolor aesthetic spotlights with 2D-animated sequences. It omits a dialogue to tell the tale of the tragedy of Peter’s parents.

Bea is a new character voiced by Rose Byrne and produces some paintings onscreen. The actress praises the eccentric artist who loves animals. It is like she is stepping back into her childhood and the artist is using your imagination intensively.

The movie adaptation has no adult-only humor. Instead, it makes fun at animal aphorisms and has a lot of physical comedy, which Domhnall Gleeson later performed. He plays Mr. McGregor, the villainous gardener. He is known for his roles in “Ex Machina” and “Star Wars”. He is usually seen flying in his scenes. He performs his own stunts with small stuffed animals and tennis balls whenever possible. Gleeson has done a lot of sketch comedy while he was back in the UK and Ireland. It is only recently that he has more serious roles. The actor is a gifted physical comedian. He is very exacting and he is up for anything.

The film has shot a few scenes in the idyllic region of Lake District in England. It is where Potter lived. It is shot with the approval of the guardians of the author’s legacy, the Frederick Warne publishers, which is a Penguin Random House division that published the books of Peter Rabbit since 1902.

Susan Bolsover is the director of licensing, as well as consumer products for the publisher. She says that Potter was able to achieve the interest of many people through the book because it is funny and timeless that can capture the imagination of the children. She also said that the author grasped the significance of talking to children on their very own level and made up a story set in the real and natural world, which all children could recognize. The themes are universally appealing.

Among the film’s themes are respect for Mother Earth and an appreciation for the world’s animals.

Corden is hoping that the one lesson that resonates the most with children is that a person has to make their own mistakes, which are inevitable, and it is important to rectify those once they realized they have made one. It will be the one that truly defines who you are.

The film was released on February 9. It is a PG-rated family movie.
