The film will follow the adventures of a genius dog, his adopted boy, and their WABAC machine - a contraption that transports the duo back in time so they can witness historical events. Rob Minkoff will be directing from a Craig Wright script.
Ty Burrell will be voicing Mr. Peabody, the world's smartest person, who happens to be a dog. When his "pet" boy Sherman (Max Charles) uses their time-traveling machine without permission, historical events spiral out of control to disastrous and comical results. It's up to this unexpected team to put things back on track before the space-time continuum is destroyed.
Bill Damaschke, the chief creative officer at DreamWorks Animation had this to say about the project:
The studio is expecting a March 14, 2014 release date.
