‘Peter Rabbit’ coming to big screen, James Corden in voice cast
British stars James Corden and Daisy Ridley will help to bring the classic children’s tales of “Peter Rabbit” to the big screen, Sony’s Columbia Pictures studios said on Monday (September 26).
Corden, host of CBS’s “The Late Late Show,” will voice Peter Rabbit and actress Rose Byrne will voice a character named Bea in the live-action CGI film that is due to be released in April 2018.
Announcement of the film coincides with the 150th anniversary of the birth of author Beatrix Potter, whose “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” was first published in 1902. It was followed by 23 stories beloved by children.
Potter’s stories were inspired by the English and Scottish countryside and are a global merchandising franchise.
