Chazz’s Canine Cinema-Film Review /GiveAway – March 13,2014
PIXAR/DreamWorks presents….. ” Mr. Peabody & Sherman”
Ariel Winter takes a break from playing brainy Alex Dunphy on TV’s “Modern Family,” to voice Penny Peterson, in DreamWorks Animation’s new animated feature, “Mr. Peabody & Sherman.” The film has her and fellow actor, Max Charles, who voices Sherman, traveling back in time with the worlds smartest canine. The duo recently sat down for a quick Q&A session.
For those who aren’t familiar with Mr. Peabody, the highly evolved and brilliant dog and his boy Sherman, they are characters that first appeared in the 1960s, when they were introduced as part of the cartoon series, “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.” Not surprisingly, neither of the two young stars had seen the cartoon prior to being cast.
While Charles could look for inspiration in the classic cartoon for Sherman, Winter had a bigger challenge since Penny was not part of the original storyline. However, this didn’t seem to bother her, “It was basically like they handed me a book and it was empty and I got to write the pages,” she explains. “I thought it was pretty cool that I got to create my own character.” Winter also joked that she brought her own real life sass to the role.
Penny’s assertive personality is what drives Sherman to defy orders and take Penny in Mr. Peabody’s WABAC (pronounced “Way-back”) time traveling machine. They embark on an adventure throughout some of history’s most legendary events, like the Trojan War. It also becomes a journey of self-discovery. Over the course of the story, Penny and Sherman grow up and learn important lessons in friendship and understanding. At the same time, Mr. Peabody goes through the hard process of learning to let the parental reins go a little. In the end Penny really realizes some things about herself and we see that she has a huge heart and she ends up caring for Sherman and Mr. Peabody.”
