Sheffield dining date for stars of new family movie

Have your say

Stars of a new film are coming to Sheffield.

The latest film from the team behind such hits as Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda is Mr Peabody & Sherman.

The Dreamworks Animation picture is billed as ‘an all-new comedy adventure for the whole family’.

Emmy Award winner Ty Burrell, who plays Phil in Modern Family, voices Mr Peabody, the world’s smartest person, who happens to be a dog.

When his ‘pet’ boy Sherman, voiced by Max Charles, uses their time-travel machine without permission, events in history spiral out of control.

And it is up to this most unexpected of father-son teams to put things back on track before the space-time continuum is irreparably destroyed.

The film opens on Friday, February 7 – and to celebrate its launch, the two main characters are coming to Sheffield.

Mr Peabody and Sherman will be in the Oasis din ing quarter at Meadowhall shopping centre on Saturday, from 11am to 4pm.

A Meadowhall spokesman said: “They will be visiting the centre to say hello and meet their new fans.

“Why not come along and have your photo taken? See you there!”
