Everyone knows Garfield. The lasagna-eating, sarcastic cat was part of just about everyone’s childhood whether you read the comics or watched the cartoon. Well, he is coming back into everyone’s lives next year with a new movie.

The movie features the voices of Chris Pratt, Nicholas Hoult, Samuel L. Jackson, Hannah Waddingham, Brett Goldstein, Harvey Guillén, Ving Rhames, Bowen Yang, and Cecily Strong. Chris Pratt will voice Garfield and Nicholas Hoult will voice Jon.

As seen in the latest trailer, the film will start at the beginning with how Jon found Garfield and brought him into his home. Apparently, Garfield was a stray, and when Jon was eating at an Italian restaurant, Garfield looked at him sadly through the window. Jon fed Garfield some pizza, Garfield ate the whole pizza, and the rest is history.

What the film will primarily be about is Garfield connecting with his biological father (who is voiced by Samuel L. Jackson AKA perfect casting) and the adventures they go on together (along with Odie). Garfield is very much like his father in more ways than one. But his father isn’t exactly on the right side of the law, and Garfield and Odie must get involved in a heist!

Garfield is coming to theaters summer 2024

Will they get locked away? Will Garfield’s dad be as fun as he seems? And will he want to stay with him instead of with Jon and Odie? Or will Jon have to bail them all out? We’ll all have to wait and see when the movie comes to theaters this coming summer. If nothing else, there will likely be lots of lasagna involved.

Take a peek at the trailer here:

This looks like the perfect movie to get everyone back into Garfield again. And it’s sure to bring about a ton of amazing merch as well!
