This friendly family packed movie is such a sweet delight to watch as you hang out this long holiday with your family and friends. Samuel L. Jackson plays the character known as JIMBO.
Who is Jimbo in the paws of Fury?
It’s a reality that makes the next film on Jackson’s ever-busy schedule even more exciting, as Jackson is lending his golden voice to Jimbo, a samurai cat at the heart of Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank. If you thought you were excited about this prospect, then the freshly debuted trailer has you beat, as Sam himself looks pretty jazzed himself.
A down-on-his-luck hound Hank (Michael Cera) finds himself in a town full of cats who need a hero to defend them from a ruthless villain’s (Ricky Gervais) evil plot to wipe their village off the map. With help from a reluctant teacher (Samuel L. Jackson) to train him, our underdog must assume the role of town samurai and team up with the villagers to save the day. The only problem… cats hate dogs!
Samuel L. Jackson leads a stellar cast as a samurai cat in the new trailer for Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank. Paws of Fury is a new animated feature from Paramount Pictures slated for release on August 8th in Nigeria cinemas nationwide. The film is directed by Mark Koetsier, whose background includes being a story artist for Big Hero 6 and 2018’s The Grinch, and Rob Minkoff, who previously directed Stuart Little and Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
Aside from Jackson, the film also has an all-star cast of voice talent, including Michelle Yeoh, Michael Cera, Ricky Gervais, Gabriel Iglesias, Djimon Hounsou, George Takei, and Mel Brooks.
While Paws of Fury is an animated, family-friendly film, the trailer also offers jokes for adults. For example, Jackson’s penchant for cursing is given a humorous nod, with the trailer seeing his character say, “What the mother-father cocker spaniel is going on here?” Paws of Fury is also loosely based on Brooks’ 1974 film Blazing Saddles, which is far from the family-friendly animation of the new movie. However, Paws of Fury gives Brooks and even Richard Pryor original story writing credits because of the connection.
