Humans have been debating the myths about Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman, and Yetis for as long as we can remember. Have we ever stopped to think that if these creatures are real, that we may be a myth to them ourselves?
That's the central conceit of Warner Bros.' new animated film, Smallfoot. The film features a very friendly Yeti who believes that humans (the Smallfoot of the title) are real, and he also believes that he's seen one. So he goes on a mission to prove that the myths true.
The issue here is that his entire community is built around the idea that humans do not exist, and proving that they do would cause panic and complete uproar. This Yeti doesn't seem to care though, he must find out the truth at all costs.
Take a look at the final trailer here:
Channing Tatum voices Migo, the Yeti star with a heart of gold. Along with him are Zendaya (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin), Danny DeVito (Batman Returns), and LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers).
The story of two disparate groups overcoming adversity and learning from each other has been done in animation before (many, many times actually), but here's hoping that this twist on the Yeti legends has something new to add.
Smallfoot looks to make a big imprint in theaters on Sept. 28. Are you interested, or should humans and yetis not mix? Let us know in the comments.
